Harley Benton D-200CE-12NT

12-String Steel String Guitar

The Harley Benton HBD200-12 is a twelve-string electric acoustic guitar in a dreadnought design with cutaway and comes at a sensational price. The back and sides are made of mahogany, and whereas you won't expect to find a solid top here, the laminated spruce top yields an unexpectedly punchy, brilliant sound for such a moderately priced guitar, with the higher octave strings delivering sufficient resounding trebles. The sound is transmitted seamlessly via a 4-band EQ pickup system. Now nothing can keep you from the stage.

  • Laminated spruce top
  • Back and sides: Mahogany (Shorea spp.)

Great guitar, would recommend!
ThCraymer, 02.02.2021
Inspired by bands such as Big Star and Amon Düül ii, I was looking at buying a 12 string guitar for my birthday, at an affordable price (not an easy thing to find). This is my first Harley Benton guitar, I am amazed by the high quality and great sound for such a low price! I have listed the pros and cons below.

PROS:
- Classic 12 string sound, sounds amazing both plugged and unplugged
- Nice glossy finish, beautiful instrument
- Lightweight and still has a solid feel to it
- Action level is perfect

CONS:
- Strings break easily, the high G broke on my first time playing it. Luckily I got it in a bundle, so had a spare set of HB strings, and would recommend getting an extra set of strings when buying it
- Large distance between paired strings near the saddle (though I also fixed this after re-stringing)

Overall, I'm very satisfied with this instrument, I'd highly recommend it! My first Harley Benton, and definitely not my last!

Best budget 12-string guitar
ValeriyFaustov, 30.06.2021
The tool looks great and is pleasant to the touch, you can immediately see what has been done with high quality. The slim neck makes it easy to pinch chords. The tuning pegs are spinning hard. The system holds perfectly. I can play for a week, and then I just adjust a little. The neck is adjustable with an anchor - you can adjust the height of the strings above the neck. Even on standard (factory) strings, the guitar sounds great, conveying different shades of sound. However, it is still better to change to better strings, for example Elixir.

In my opinion, the guitar will suit both beginners and experienced guitarists. For such a small price, it turned out to be an excellent combination of price / quality. There is no better way to learn how to play the guitar. As soon as I bought this particular guitar, I began to progress faster in learning, because I want to turn to a quality instrument more and more often, my hands still reach for the cabinet where the guitar is.

Play, sing, develop. Good luck to all!

Good value 22 string accoustic
Peterb123, 26.01.2021
I ordered this guitar to add a 12 string accoustic to my collection. I didn’t want to spend a fortune on a guitar I was not going to use a lot so decided on the HB D 200CE 12 NT. knowing it was in the budget price range I was not expecting perfection but I was pleasantly surprised with it when it arrived. There were no blemishes and it looked good. However the strings were nowhere near tuned up, so the first thing was to tune it. The g string snapped before reaching the correct pitch so I had to get a fine g string from a spare set I had to finish it off with. I then strummed the guitar and I have to say that it sounded good. Better than I expected. However, on the downside, the fret ends were very sharp and definitely need smoothing off, plus the pickup wiring inside the body is loose a rattles when the guitar is moved. Despite these two issues, the guitar is very good value for money.and I would recommend it for a player who doesn’t want to splash out a lot more. I think it would mean splashing out a lot more money to get a noticeable difference.

Surprising quality for the price
Jack Daniels, 10.04.2018
Purchased this guitar because I wanted to own a 12 string, but didn't want to commit too much money for something that I think I'll rarely play. The quality for the price is surprising. It plays well, has a low and consistent action and it's stayed in tune really well. I haven't been able to put it down since it arrived.


Guitar was shipped from Germany to Australia and arrived within 10 days, as promised. Double boxed with plenty of padding there isn't a shipping mark to be seen. Extremely happy... so much so I'm working on purchasing another one from Thomann now.
