A decent mandolin

02.11.2015
Obviously for the money this mandolin won't take your breath away but it's a decent instrument. The finish looks good at first glance but when taking a closer look it has it's rough spots here and there. The "F" holes cut outs are not as smooth as you might expect. The pick guard does not have smooth rounded edging. Like the HB 35 I purchased, the pick guard looks as if it were shaped / trimmed by hand. The collars on the tuning pegs (machine heads) were not flush against the head stock on 6 of the 8 tuners (they were sticking up pretty high). So I had to loosen the strings and push them down flush. Not a big deal but it tells you a little about the attention to details on this particular instrument. When connected to the amp it worked fine. Not a lot of noise and no feedback (a good thing). Overall, not too bad. A decent mandolin to carry around with you without having to worry about your more expensive one.

A killer instrument for the price

alex_v, 02.08.2018
I am extremely impressed by this mandolin. I play the guitar and wanted to experiment with such stringed instrument.

The finish looks great, the sunburst has been executed flawlessly (only a very small mark on the side of the neck, but totally not important). Everything works great!

Also, came pretty much set up out of the box. You have to change the strings to something better. Also, around the 14th fret there is a buzzing sound, however at least as a beginner, I am not affected by it. A good technician will make it shine. Even guys who work at guitar shops are impressed by it.

It really convinced me to give a nod to Harley Benton for future instrument purchases.
