For the price Super!

07.09.2016
The guitar can certainly keep up with far more expensive instruments. It looks good and has a full clear sound. At the mechanics wobbles nothing and with the help of the built-in Simmer device the guitar can be quickly and precisely, even if I thought at the beginning it was defective, because the supplied 9V battery seemed to be already empty. With a new battery ran everything but then. The built-in pickup is under the bridge, is however with me very bassloaded, which is why I have set the preamp "treble" always to maximum. Possibly. But the bridge on the bass strings can be grinded down somewhat, so that the pressure on the pickup is not so strong.
In addition, I had to adjust the neck with the adjusting screw, because otherwise the strings rummage while playing and I had to lubricate the saddle with graphite, so that the strings do not hang while tuning.
Now the guitar is really good playable.

Although it should be a guitars guitar, it has a depth of 9 cm, which in my opinion is already relatively thick for a thinline model. This makes the guitar but also unreinforced relatively noisy.

For processing: As with most of Harley Benton's grids. At first sight great, if you look more closely you will find small impurities. ZT. There are brighter spots and strokes in the lacquer of the binding and the mechanics lack the lacquer in a small place, which does not disturb alldigs and also only striking, if one searches for it.
Rather, the cables interfere with the guitar, as you can see them through the sound hole and dangle them in the guitar. However, they can also be glued afterwards so that they can not be seen through the sound hole.

Overall I am satisfied with the guitar and would recommend it.


Another supplement:
The sound picture of the built-in pickup me later disturbed more and more, as even the EQ settings on the preamp the 3 high strings were hardly to be heard. That's why I dared to ditch the bridge under the bass E, A and D string.
When you lower the strings, the bridge can be taken out. Underneath the bridge is then the Tonabnemer (A cable, which terminates in a kind of wire braid and is led through a small hole in the ceiling to the preamp).
I gently sanded the bridge from the bottom with sandpaper on one string. In addition, I have made indentations in the bridge from below with the lute, so that it is more flexible and the vibrations of the strings better to the pickup. (If someone should have the same problem: I have a thread on musicians-board .de very helped "battery mounting on the preamp.")

The result is also satisfactory: the bass strings are still very strong, but the G, B and e strings are now much louder. I think, if you could even a little more, would be able to change. For me is the volume but enough.

My overall impression about the guitar has not changed and is still very positive. In hinds I had a little work with the guitar, but this is probably the compromise, which one at a so price must go.
