Processing and setup fits "Made in China"

Frank65, 23.04.2010
I bought the guitar because I wanted to play a little guitar again as an old bass player. Since I am lefty and did not want to invest much money, I just bought this Harley Benton in the package with bag, plek, tuner and textbook.

Right at the time of unpacking, I noticed that the neck was crooked like a banana and the smurfs could dance under the Limbo strings. The strings are much too high and the neck is also straight, but the string is still not in it.
After all, I have so much experience with string instruments that I can improve the saddle notches and can also lower the bridge. Without this mechanical processing, a reasonable game on this instrument is not really great.

The strings have to be exchanged directly for new ones, since new strings are already a must for standard instruments, and the sound can definitely only be improved.

The frets are quite passable and reach for my purposes. The processing of the varnish is somewhat worse in some places and on the fingerboard there are still some white color or polish on the higher frets. But you can remove. At the neck I have an unsightly paint defect, which does not disturb however with the play.

As far as the sound is concerned, one can not complain after various adjustments. The guitar sounds transparent and clear to my amateur bassers. The built-in pickup with EQ is an advantage, which makes the removal of microphones in the hobby area unnecessary in many cases.

All in all, I would not recommend beginners to such a guitar, unless they are able to put the instrument into a thorough setup and properly adjust or rework.

I'm assuming that at this price a final check is not made by Thomann and I was also just about to return the thing directly back then but then because of the alternatives to the previous testing me nevertheless decided to keep the guitar and simply adjust itself .

Beautiful guitar for beginners

Waldemar J., 13.12.2009
I bought this entry-level guitar, recommended by many users, to make a worthy replacement for my main guitar. Said, Done: Not much later the good piece was at home in my hands. After the first allusion I noticed - and I did not expect that at this price - the wonderfully brilliant but powerful sound! Also the sound from the pickup made a strong impression.

Unfortunately was not everything so beautiful: Some small flaws in the paint were unfortunately to be recognized. So it seemed that the lacquer on the ceiling was not evenly applied and was a bit "gecklekert" in the transition from corpus to the fingerboard. Also the cables of the pickup inside the guitar were no longer glued properly, which means they wiggled around, but I did not really care.
In conclusion, the Harley Benton HBD120CEBK is a guitar with convincing sound and features! In this price class unique!
