a lot of potential

ThorCrowley, 16.05.2017
When I bout this instrument I did not expect much, I was to be used on a trip and maybe do some recording of ideas.
The sound samples were mot that great ...
I played the guitar without amplification and was very surprised how balanced and full she sounded (and yes It's a She :P )
I played her along my Dad's Martin as crazy as it may sound .. I like the sound of the Harley Benton better. I still feel silly writing this.
I tested her with 4 different acoustic amps and was frankly blown away that the Fishman system which I believe to be the cheapest OEM the company sells could produce such a defined and authentic classic guitar sound.
The on-board tuner is .. well a fallback if all else fails including tuning by ear.
It is entirely possible that I just got the one guitar where everything lined up to be perfect during construction, but this one is much more than I expected it could be, especially at this price-point.
I polished the frets and rounded the fret ends, (something I had to do with all Harley Benton guitars so far but also to much more expensive brands )
adjusted the string action and changed the strings because they would not stay in tune for 5 minutes but after that I dare to say almost perfect.

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!
