Love this little guitar!

dg3086, 07.04.2018
I am age 61 and my shoulders get stiff and achy after playing a big dreadnought. So I recently began searching for a smaller "parlor" guitar. I didn't care about electronics, but I wanted a mahogany body with a slotted head. Since I live in the USA, I had not heard of Thomann or the Harley-Benton brand and I was concerned about making an international purchase. However, I decided that Thomann had exactly what I wanted at a great price, so I was ready to take the risk. The Thomann website was easy to use and their shipping charge was very reasonable. I used a credit card so they calculated the dollar amount. Shipping was fast and I received a notice when my package passed through US Customs. The guitar arrived quickly and well packed. The packaging looked exactly like a Recording King I recently purchased. Maybe they are from the same factory? I have purchased guitars from US suppliers who charged more for shipping and took longer for my package to arrive, so I am very happy with my international purchasing experience. This little CLP-15M also sounds better and appears to be of better quality than my Martin DJR2.

Just what I wanted

Anonymous290, 20.02.2018
I always wanted a 12-fret small body guitar that is both cheap and of decent quality. I looked on thomann and various other sites, and I found other options, but there was always something that didn't quite fit...they either had narrow nut widths, exceeded my budget, or had flat headstocks like most other guitars.
The Harley Benton on the other hand, has exactly the specs I want to see on a parlor: wider nut width, 12-fret body construction, a slotted headstock, and even a pickguard just in case! It came very well set-up, no need to adjust the neck! I never played a guitar so light on the fingers as this one! The bone bridge seems a little high, but that didn't affect the action. Maybe next time I change strings, I will sand it down a bit, cause the angle of the strings sitting on it seems a little abrupt.
The sound is very good. It is excellent for blues like Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy etc., you know the ones with thumping bass leads. It is also great for folk, and if you play alot of electric, this little guy is good with soloing as well! The bends sound superb!
The reviews don't lie, this guitar will NOT disappoint you!
