Harley Benton Custom Line CLR Chrome Resonator
Rustproof, 09.04.2019
I brought this to inspire me to properly learn old style bottleneck Blues. It arrived in standard tuning and from the first chord I could tell it has a really authentic sound. Tuned to open G the action is still low enough for fretting without worrying about pressure from the slide ( I use a variety of slides now, from heavy Porcelain to light Glass Bottles ) and its character changes noticeably according to the Slide used. It is also very loud, the cone really pushes the sound and it can easily hold its own against heavily strummed acoustic guitars, even when playing single lines. it has excellent projection and can be easily mic'd (you will not need a separate mic near to the neck to capture that authentic Delta blues rasp from the strings) . Overall really happy with my purchase.
Pros:
Excellent projection, authentic sound, great playability.
Cons:
Its HEAVY! Not really a "Con", but you will definitely know its there.
Highly Recommended

A beautiful resonator guitar, I love it, but tin sound resonates from the cone and sound holes.
My expectation beforehand were not too high after reading some other reviews concerning finish, however my one that was delivered is beautifully finished to an exceptional high standard.

I am like a man in love ...with his first guitar.

The guitar is much smaller than you think from the images online, it approximately the size of a small travel guitar.

Slips about when playing as it's super slick.

Guitar sound better when tuned to open G or E as opposed to standard tuning.

My guitar arrived very poorly package and the box was in bits, however unbelievable as it may sound the guitar was undamaged. Thomann should package products better especially when shipping outside of Germany.

Now folks.... It's bluegrass time so got to go and sing some old time gospel songs. See ye all later
