Great Entry level steel string
Glenn from Virginia, 29.05.2020
Great addition to my other Harley Bentons. I already own well over a dozen Harley Bentons including the classical nylon string model of this guitar, as well as the round body acoustic bass of this family (cousins). I'm a bassist and beginner guitarist but my wife is a performing musician. I bought this one to keep in the living room to grab when we hear a song of interest. Sounds good with strings replaced (the ones that came with it were not at all warm). The wood veneer decorative pieces needed a spot of glue, but all in all this is a decent guitar at a fantastic price that I would highly recommend for a beginner or student, or a good "beater" that you don't have to be fussy about where you set it or lay it down. The ABS round back lets you just lay it anywhere without worry about scratching it up or damaging it. Great value. Recommended.

Why did I wait so long?
Curreeney old boy, 28.11.2019
I've had my eye on these guitars for years and was hesitant to buy ,being put off by some poor reviews ,but I finally succumbed,
So what did I get?
A guitar that punches way above its price,I've owned a solid top guild dreadnought that didn't sound as sweet!
The set up was perfect sub2mm string height,super level fretwork,
Immaculate Finnish,
Slick machine head's,plus a nice sounding preamp.
I've only dropped 1star off this guitar for the sharp unfinished fret ends ,which was an easy fix,.
The only thing I would advise anyone buying this guitar to do is don't judge it's quality until you get rid of the weird strings it come fitted with! 10s my ear! I fitted Harley Benton coated 10s ,and gave the nut a quick dress with one of those small welding nozzle cleaning file kits you can pick up for 5 euros!.
Was I just fortunate to get a good one ,seems not because I bought my wife the blue one and it's just as good,if only I'd tried one before I'd have saved myself a fortune .

wow!
AK_doomGR, 19.11.2020
Its an overall excellent guitar for the price-excellent value for money deal.
Its a nice versatile guitar, with descent electronics which you can play in various styles. Nice body and fret also. Easily could compared with guitars at least in the double price.

Pros: obviously value for money, great sound, “easy” to play
Cons: Actually there is nothing bad to say about this guitar

Best Guitar
11.05.2016
I bought this to learn the guitar and music theory and to do covers of songs.
It came with strings equipped, tuned, and very sexy. I bought strings and a bunch of picks just in case. The shipping (To Bulgaria) was very fast, around 6 days, and the tracking was immediate and often updated. I love my guitar!
There are a few youtube vids that showcase the guitar, just google the brand and model.

The only minus I can think of is that it came without a manual for how to set it up as an electric guitar. There is a panel on the guitar with sliders and buttons but I have no Idea what to do if i wanted to use is as an electric guitar to shred. I guess I should take it to the local music shop and ask or look it up on reddit.

I used it avidly for 5 or 6 months but then I stopped not because anything was wrong but because I got into uni and it's no longer my priority to study guitar. As soon as I finish uni and get back home I will focus on guitaring again I promise.

Recommended.
