Excellent for the price
damo, 16.11.2019
This is a very nice small bodied guitar. I also own a HB dreadnought body and wanted something smaller for more casual playing and the MJCE fits the bill.

Fretwork is good, no sharpies, will need a light polish though.
Tuners are decent, they do the job.

Sound is good, maybe very slightly boxy, but to be expected given the size.

Extremely light.

Tuner works well, won't bother with the pickup.

Very minor cosmetic niggles. It has a few slight dings (post manufacture handling, maybe shipping has caused?) The guitar box contained no foam inserts whatsoever and the guitar was in a light polyfoam sleeve, and the outer thomann box was damaged so shipping may be the culprit, but the dings are minor and nothing to concern.

There are a few signs of "cheapness" in the finish. The two halves of the body show a very visible join at the bottom where the strap pin resides. Also there is very visible glue around the bridge where it meets the body. Again, I'm not worried.

Recommended as maybe a starter guitar, a throw-around guitar for casual playing. Would really suit fingerpicking.

Harley Benton Delta Blues MJCE
Toelyne, 17.02.2020
So, here's my short review on the MJCE. Overall it's a nice budget guitar, I'd say good for campfire or practicing. The sound is pretty nice, to be honest. Imagine getting a budget all-mahogany guitar.

Everything, however, has both pros and cons. I mentioned the goodies, so here are the downsides. I don't know if it's just my guitar, but apparently I see visible glueline inside the body (through the sound hole). Kinda kills off the vibe a bit. Second is the metal frets being a bit... well I don't know what to say but I feel a bit unfomfy when I slide my hand. Third is the EQ. I don't like the tone of this, but the tuner is quite useful, nonetheless. And a minor thing is the logo on the headstock, it makes the guitar look like a knock-off.

Yeah, that's it for my review, and it's just my personal verdict. I do rercommend this guitar for beginners or those who look for a good guitar for a good price!

What a surprisingly great guitar!!!
JonathanKoh, 17.02.2019
Took a chance in ordering this guitar as I was very much smitten by how it looks! After a simple setup, I was pleasantly surprised by how this guitar sounds! Even though it's listed as a mini jumbo, I feel it's more like a parlour guitar to me. The condition of the delivered guitar was pretty much flawless. I'm seriously impressed!!
My review for this guitar is at my youtube channel :)

I wanted an acoustic guitar for so long. I always played on classicals, but I wanted one to carry around easy with a bag and not a case. I looked for a guitar which looked very vintage and cool. And I found that one! I didn't want to pay a lot since it is not for concerts or professional use.

I am very happy with the looks of the guitar. Also by the sound. I am honest in everything and will also review my least best thougts. The sound is great, but one the low E string I got a lot of ringing when i pick the snare with my thumb. Its because of the low action you can see on the fretboard up the side of the tuners. And I think this is partly on purpose, to create the blues effect. The other strings are fine. I got a very rich sharp sound out of the guitar. Lots, lots of volume, well intonated chords. Tuning is very good, also the in-made tuner works perfect. If i got to mention 1 downside, than it is that the fretboard is made of cheap wood. Bending string and making vibratos is very hard to execute because of the quality. For a 100 euro guitar this is perfect for me. Since I just want to take it everywhere and play some chords to sing songs on! Very nice guitar!
