Excellent!!

Bran22, 13.09.2018
I just received the guitar today. The strings are a bit old and a few a few scratches, but that is to be expected when product is being shipped internationally.

Pros: The quality of sound without an amp sounds great. I connected it to my portable Blackstar Fly 3 Mini amp and it sounded great. It has two (2) built in effects which adds a little bit of tone depending on which style of music you are playing.

Cons: It has no guitar strap locks with the guitar and have to buy seperately.

I definitely would recommend this guitar to anyone who wants a good affordable classical guitar for rehersal or just for personal pleasure. It has a good build quality, excellent sound and the matt black color adds it uniqueness compared to the high polished body which are fingerprints magnet. For a price of 133 euro its a grab.

Great Classical Guitar!

17.12.2016
Ordered this last Saturday (10th December) for my son as a Christmas present. It arrived safely and well packed yesterday (Friday 16th December). The photographs did not do this guitar any justice. Looks a lot nicer than on the photos! The guitar is fitted with a Fishman Preamp (tuner included!), and all the fixtures and fittings are all decent quality! Lovely guitar, and lovely sound! All i all a great purchase!
I've bought several Harley Benton Electrics from Thomann and I've yet to be disappointed or have a single problem with them. Really good equipment for the money. As with any guitars from any manufacturer there are some tweaks that can be made to improve the playability, but all the gear I've had has always been playable out of the box!
Well done Thomann, your products and service are amazing!
Thank You!
