Very disappointed indeed

Dusko, 13.05.2015
This is the second Harley Benton low-end acoustic I've bought and in both cases it was/will be returned. I'm in need of an acoustic guitar and it just seems that these lower end acoustics are not of the best quality.

The frets are too sharp on the edges, the neck is bowed more than I can fix with the truss rod, the frets are most definitely not polished nor even (lots of buzz), the fret board seems very dry, the original strings are rusty and sound horrible, the tuners are jumping so no good, the round plastic circle around the sound hole is poorly cut.

I guess this is the last time I am buying these cheapest HB guitars and will return this product and save some more money for the high end HB guitar instead and see how they are.

Well a guitar to work

Nils588, 09.03.2012
I ordered the Harley Benton HBO600 BK erroneously, when they then (within 2 days) arrived with me, I thought that I could at least try them.

The setting ex factory was not so exhilarating, but according to voices and neck adjustment (the required tool is included, which is why I still had a plus in the features), you could already bear the sound quite well.

The included strings, thickness 12, however, provide for such a rancid brass band sound that you have to replace them with thinner strings. But even when playing in higher positions, the string position is so high that you can hardly get good tones without pain (from the 10th Covenant becomes critical, for campfire chords is fine). While the dry sound sounds a bit tinny, the guitar on the amp suddenly shows itself from a completely different side: especially with riffs with extreme distortion, her sound from the stool, she sounded like my Flying V !!! So even the Metal faction is likely to be impressed by this instrument. In general, I can say that I was positively surprised by the amplified sound.

The whole big minus comes now: The processing is really for the A .... bfalleimer. The ceiling has a (certainly not wanted) vault on which the bridge is fastened, which holds however however genuinly good, but by the vault creates the extremely high string position. Could however be a single case. If I have not worn the neck for a long time, it can even be 1 cm in the 12th fret. Also the plastic body looks unfortunately quite cheap, just like the amp output and the belt holder. Both of them have loosened after half a year of average to increased stress (the belt holder is torn off during play, which is very suboptimal), that they have to be replaced. A real laughter are the ornaments at the sound hole, they are ... a sticker, which shows after some time or some hand welding self-dissolution phenomena. Plus in processing: The paint is applied cleanly and does not crack easily. Neck and bridge, as well as the mechanics are also to be used. All in all, you can say that this Harley Benton is quite appropriate to their price class (but it can not be more expensive!).

I would rather recommend them less. But pros with little money and a lot of skill could get with her already something useful to the series. From the soundtrack of my band, however, it can not be imagined without its initial shards. So if you do something, but no coal, you can be quite satisfied with the thing.
