OK, let's start with me clarifying why I bought this guitar...

My main acoustic is a Martin D28 and unfortunately this got damaged by a drunken dancer at my last gig. This made me realise that it's ridiculous taking expensive instruments to unknown venues etc. Therefore I thought I'd buy a guitar that I wouldn't care so much if it got damaged.

I liked the look of this guitar and it has a few good English language review and more to the point it was cheap. I was hopeful but my expectations weren't that high, as this is definitely priced as a starter guitar.

I will get the bad out of the way first:

1. The action was a little high when I got it and I noticed there was almost no tension in the truss rod. This was adjusted and the action came down. I would like it lower still but that's just preference.
2. The fret ends have been left very sharp. I doubt you'll cut yourself but it's quite off-putting. I realise the guitar is made to a price point but I I think most of us would rather pay another £25 for this to be corrected by the time one receives it. This will need to be sorted before I can use it properly.
3. No neck strap button.
4. A few small cosmetic signs that this may not be a top-flight instrument.

Ok now onto the good.

Once the truss rod was adjusted the guitar is very playable with a nice slim neck. The nut is cut perfectly and intonation is as spot on as any other acoustic. It has a solid spruce top, which whilst not looking the best still sounds good and very attractive laminated rosewood back and sides.

The sound this guitar produces is really, really good. A very even and modern sound. Think lower-end Taylors or probably more accurately mid-range Takamines. It doesn't have the most bottom end but what there is sounds tight, and this will probably improve as the top matures. The sound compared to my Martin is less complex, quieter and with less bass. But in actual fact I just class it as different, not inferior. It's just another colour on the pallet. For recording purposes I can see me choosing this over the Martin where I need a rhythm part that doesn't stand out too much. It almost sounds like it's been through an equaliser already. So again, whilst not as interesting or organic sounding as acoustics at nearly 15 times the price I could honestly not say it sounds inferior.

The fishman preamp is OK, I've heard better, but I won't replace it as it sounds good enough. The tuner is very handy if a little coarse.

All in all, this guitar is very impressive and will get use beyond just being the cheap guitar I take to rough gigs. I've already taken it to be properly set up and have the fret ends addressed which in total will probably cost me half the value of the guitar again but the fact I'm even doing this should tell you that I think it is very much worth it. My suggestion if you're considering this guitar is just do it, you can't go wrong, it's great and will serve you well just as it is, however, spend another £50 getting it set up and sorted and you will have a guitar that in all important aspects can hold it's own against anything.

Most pleasantly surprising thing I've bought in years!!!

Tne Harley Benton CLJ-503 CE NT Guitar Arrived 9 days after ordering from Thomann. This being my first order.
The order tracking was spot on and very helpfull.

The guitar was packed very well and thankfully it arrived in one piece. For the money I really didn't know what to expect but I really am pleasantly suprised at how good this guitar is. I have owned several Yamaha,s and even a thousand pound Takamine. Although the Harley Benton guitar being a quarter of the price.


It is a really top quality instrument and sounds wonderfull. there are a few little niggles like most of the frets are rough at the ends and a funny vibration on the 5th string on the 11th fret.
Still at the price nothing really.
I really didn't think you could buy a quality Guitar like this for under £300.
I was looking at second hand until I saw the guitar on Thomann,s website the pictures are a great way of checking out the finish as you can really zoom in close.
The best thing are the honest reviews from customers who have actually bought the product.

If its good its good and if its not its not. I have been playing for 42 years and seriously recommend this lovely Guitar. The good thing with Thomann you get full piece of mind 30
day refund policy and a 3 year warranty. Unbelievable. A big thankyou to all at Thomann Music house. from Mike , Stockport, Cheshire,
