Harley Benton Custom Line CLR-ResoElectric
John162, 25.06.2015
harley benton are a company manufacturer i have used now for a few years now
a banjo 3 bass guitars ..a classical guitar ..and now the resonator .
Harley Benton Custom Line CLR-ResoElectric..
this id an instrument i have been interested for a few months .. was gaining interest in slide playing .. i looked online at the various makes ..obviously i didn't spend too much on a resonator ..due to not knowing if i would get on with it .
looking at ozark gretch and such like ..and the national though very nice ..a bit out of my price range ,,
i looked and looked ,,and the more i looked at the harley benton Harley Benton Custom Line CLR-ResoElectric looked a lovely looking guitar ..
i guess it depends on what you prefer i guess .
when i unboxed it ..i made no adjustments to it ..and i still haven't after three weeks ..
it sound better than i thought it would be ..being a low end entry level ..
it sounds very authentic ..and just how i like it to sound ..
it's definitely developed its own character ..and i am really enjoying playing either slide or standard tuning ,
the quality is.. to be honest the superb quality iv'e come to realize with HB instruments.. so i had no doubts before i ordered it i would be happy with the quality .
like i said the sound is very authentic ..and plugged into an amp ..the tone is very very warm and still a very authentic tone .
the one lipstick pick up isn't the most powerful pick up ..but it has a very nice tone to it ..
there isn't really any thing that i have to say negative about this instrument .
well made ..sounds great ..looks great ..i'm very happy i bought it ..and probably won't bother upgrading to a more expensive model later on ,,
i really like this guitar and i'm sure you would be too ..and dare i say it ..it was the cheapest in its class ..chrome / electric /resonator
it feels great to hold ..and balanced quite well ..and not too heavy being a slim line .. all in all ..very very happy ..well done HB and thomann again for delivering satisfaction .

A gorgeous performer !
Erky32, 15.09.2020
I've had brass bodied tricone, wood bodied spider cone, Fender resocaster, I've built 2 telecaster resonators - but this one takes the biscuit!! (good pun?) - I even prefer it over my mates 3 grand plus National! Its a very pretty guitar with the blend of gold finish & chrome, along with etchings. The neck is as comfy as any acoustic for regular playing, and even with quite low action behaves well for slide. the body is a nice weight, similar to a strat, and not much thicker so it is a very playable guitar with good balance and a loud acoustic reso sound. Tuners are well geared and stable. The electric pick up amplifies and works ok but for amplified reso performance it would benefit from a piezo centre biscuit mounted transducer, but I bought it really for acoustic play so it's absolutely fine. I play this a lot, which means a lot to me for a reso - usually they tend to fit into that 12-string category of "once-in-a-while" - but this gets a daily usage!

Insane instrument
JimiLesPol, 01.04.2021
Use
For home and small gigs.

Clarity
Perfect sound! With and without an amp.

Pros
All around sound. Very nice for roots playing.
Also nice touch the fact that from the factory it comes with strings for open-G! Very authentic.
The pickup is very nice! Soft sound. Also perfect from slide use, if you add a touch of Fuzz!

Cons
The pictures on the website are not quite representative of the product. The body is polished chrome and not this darker shade. Also, the back of the neck is brown and not Wine Red cherry color, as it is shown in the image.
A fret polishing would be also helpful.

All in all, I would recommend this product!
