Great sound for the price! Quality not so good. . .
SiScotland, 14.10.2020
I've had a Sigma travel steel string for the past few years, and every time I pick it up I wish I'd bought a full size guitar. I've been looking at Harley Benton guitars on the website and youtube yada yada yada for about 12 months. This guitar got great reviews on both, including a great one by Jonathon in Singapore as mentioned in another review here.

My first Harley Benton - online ordering easy; delivery to Scotland tracked all the way and at my door within a week of ordering. Double boxed, no damage to either box or guitar.

The colour of the guitar was a dark brown/blue/black - darker than on the photos on the website and nicer for it. All strings were tuned down. All tuners worked and held tune well; all felt smooth, no noticeable 'bad ones'.

The sound was amazing for such a well priced guitar - loud enough when strummed, very clear single notes, and good resonance.

The finish of the guitar was not so good - the joint between neck and body looked rough, and the fret ends felt sharp all the way up the neck. Unfortunately I don't have the knowledge or tools to file the frets.

I played the guitar for an evening, and loved the sound but didn't like the frets. The guitar is good value for money (I went for the bundle including gig bag, as it was only £5 more than the guitar on its own with shipping), especially as it comes with an preamp (and free battery). Unfortunately I decided the finish outweighed the sound so I sent it back under the 30 day return, spent twice the money and got a Harley Benton Custom Line CLA-15MCE B-Stock.

A note on the returns - this was a simple to do as the original ordering - go on the website, hit return item, (no need to give any explanation), print off return label, package up the guitar in the original packaging, take round to local post office (return slip had instructions for the post office staff too, just in case), they scan it, and you can track it all the way back to Thomann. Took same time for the return to reach Germany as the replacement guitar to reach Scotland - great service!

Small and punchy
Victim, 07.01.2021
This guitar punches way above its price range!
Looks great in the flesh. Feels manly, like a barrel of whiskey. Mini Jumbo shape is underrated. Especially in full mahogany, the clear, punchy midrange cuts through the masses of dreadnoughts everyone seems to have. You won't be louder that your friends, but you will be heard.
Neck is semi feels like a D profile, but slightly chunky. I have tiny hands and still fits me well. Frets are too small, unfortunately. The guitar body feels dinky, slim and very comfortable.
Pickup is alright. No Fishman, but still way better than early noughties TCY. Built-in tuner is a lifechanger. I don't understand why electrics don't have it as standard.
Tuners don't please me, but they do the job well. Minor finish flaws can be found, but seriously, when guitar looks like this, it would look all the better when you bash it up a bit.
I filed the fret ends, oiled the fretboard, changed strings a few times and swapped the bridge saddle for a TUSQ and pins for brass. I recommend it.
I can't believe how much guitar Harley Benton provides for the money.

amazing value
shearwater, 18.12.2020
This may not be the finest guitar you'll ever own but for the price it's incredibly good value, especially given the fact that it comes with a built in tuner and a decent bag. It sounds much better as a guitar at this price than you could reasonably expect. It's not fair to be over-critical about build quality-maybe if you'd paid £300 for it, but certainly not at this price. In actual fact, it's not too bad at all, there's a slightly annoying rattle from a loose cable inside the body but I think this would be very easily rectified when I replace the strings at some point in the future. Recommended.

Best bang for buck guitar I ever played!!
John Fraw, 06.04.2021
I am a professional entertainer and I bought this guitar for playing around the house rather than having to dig out one of my gigging guitars every time. I love how natural it looked and thought it would look good on a stand in the corner of the room when I wasn't using it. I was blown away by the lovely woody tones of the guitar and the immediate palyability. I tried it at my next gig and was really impressed with the consistency of sound through the PA. It was very close soundwise to guitars I paid 20 times the price for. Very impressed.
