Harley Benton Custom Line King CE VS - FANTASTIC!!!

I have made several purchases with Thomann in recent years and have never been less than delighted with the quality and service.
On this occasion, I was looking for a jumbo acoustic electric guitar to use in a rockabilly trio, so the sound and appearance were the most important factors.
I had already tried the Gretsch 5022 jumbo Rancher, which I found to be a little lacking in mid-range tone, and the Epiphone EJ200 CE which was a little too heavy in the mid-range.
Looking through the offerings from Thomann, I came across the Harley Benton Custom Line King CE, that looked amazing and was around half the price of both the Gretsch and Epiphone.
It clearly takes styling cues from the Epiphone, with the flower pickguard and moustache bridge, but maintains it's own identity with a modified body shape and much shallower and under-stated cutaway which I prefer.

Taking the plunge, I ordered the guitar in vintage sunburst finish, not expecting it to live up to the on-line pictures! When it arrived - WOW!!! It looks fantastic and the sound was perfect acoustically - nice articulation between strings, action nicely set and a nice medium profile neck that makes it very easy to play. The fretwork is good with no sharp edges.
I particularly like the high ratio Grover tuners which maintain tuning stability.
As the guitar is fitted with the Fishman Isys+ pre-amp and under saddle transducer as used on the Gretsch, I fully expected them to sound similar amplified.
I found it sounded best using the auxiliary input on the PA which means using the guitars on-board eq to shape the sound. It sounds absolutely FANTASTIC, exactly the sound I was looking for!
Tuners can be a bit hit and miss generally, but this guitar is perfectly in tune when using the onboard tuner.
You have to look hard to find any imperfections on this guitar, but at this price they aren't worth mentioning. This is a serious bargain - grab one! You won't be disappointed!

Serious, for this money!!!!!

Come on for the money it's 5 stars all the way. Opened the box and right away I smiled at it's appearance, it just looks great. Put the strap on and noticed my first niggle, the strap button placement!!! As it's a cutaway I can't understand why they would put it where it is and have it get it in the way of my shredding man!!!! this is an easy fix though.

The finish is very, very good with very minor flaws and not noticeable by the casual observer. Fret work is also good and out of the box played well. I had to tweak the truss rod to get it to my liking but no big deal. The pick up (as I have researched) is a budget model but as mainly an electric guitarist served my purpose with no moaning my end at all....plus it's nice to have a tuner at hand.

My only concern is that I am finding it hard to intonate, at the moment. I have to make a decision...do I want an open E chord to be in tune or a D, because I ain't getting both!!!! Kind of used to this problem with my electrics but can sort it with a screwdriver, out of my depths here with an acoustic. If it costs me £100 to sort I still feel it's a bargain. Main dilemma at the moment is, do I get one in every colour? Research also tells me that this is a problem on branded, high end guitars as well.

As for service, can't fault Thomann. My only concern is that when it the package come to the UK we have some right idiots working here (it's Christmas at the moment) who are more concerned with meeting deadlines rather than customer care!!!
