Smallness

Norbert744, 03.12.2013
I've read a lot about the CLF-200NT, almost just good. Nevertheless, I saw them at Thomann and played them together with some others. It lay from the sound, in the cf to much more expensive instruments in the good midfield. From the look it is at the front. So I took a copy with me. It sounds beautifully bluesy and can be played very well in the unpacked condition, only a few voices was announced. The strings are slightly oxidized, but I still play them down. I have attached a second button for the strap. It makes me very much fun. I play them almost daily, the highs and lows I would describe as balanced, the volume is clear, but not obtrusive.
When the first strings fly down, I'll "pimp" them.

My conclusion: optics and price are unbeatable, processing in view of faultlessly and the sound makes pleasure. The playability is ok, but can be improved with some Feintuning still. This price is a hit for the price.

Thank you also to Thomann, for the time you take on the spot for the customers.

Update after 2 years: the small CLF200 is the most frequently played guitars (of 13). However, after 2 years the collar wires have clear tracks, so they have to be dressed or renewed. Therefore, no cost is spared and the little goes to the guitar builder and gets for 2 years of fun new high quality tuners.
The solid ceiling does not have any deformations (11 strings) and has developed again significantly. The thing is really a miracle. Still absolute purchase recommendation, as long as they are all as mine.

Refined construction with small weaknesses

Thomas529, 09.01.2014
I have taken the many positive reviews of the Harley Benton CLF 200 NT Parlorgitarre as an opportunity to order a model. I would like to supplement my observations at this point.

The equipment and construction: The guitar is very lightly constructed. Whether deliberately or unintentionally, this filigree construction takes account of the plywood corpus, which is thus very resonant. The floor has to do with three crossbars, the solid spruce top measures only 2.5 mm on the sound hole and is also very elegantly lined. So that the whole of the string tension is maintained, the back and sides are slightly arched - a well-made feature of high-quality guitars. The throat, which has a three-part construction, is rather slender and complements the dainty impression of the instrument.

The mechanics in the window head are simple concert guitar mechanisms, which do not necessarily facilitate a precise voice, but do not make it impossible - I immediately exchanged them for higher quality.

Processing: The guitar is well-processed on the wood side. I could not detect any quirks, bungles on the struts and ripenes, or any glue. Even the inside of the window heads are cleanly polished - I have seen worse on more expensive instruments. The finish is overall tidy. Really badly worked on the guitar are the bridge and the bunch. The holes for the bridge pins are frayed and splintered at the exit side inside the body. The wristbands are extremely unclean dressed. There are not to be tolerated differences in height of almost 0.3 mm - the strings can not be adjusted sensibly over such a fretboard. I've just finished the bridge a little flatter and can not play the guitar properly anymore. (3.5 / 2.5 mm above the fretboard in the 12th fret - this is flat - but should be possible) The strings rattle against the lofty covenant - here must be dressed again. As a small consolation, it is at least bundrein.

Sound: The sound of this guitar is as colorful and dazzling as the mother-of-pearl imitation binding. Due to the very resonant construction, it is incredibly complex and dynamic with a grandiose approach: however, this great dynamism and openness is bought with a slightly undifferentiated and spongy interlacing of overtones, but this is well managed and a great challenge for the player - fortunately it is nevertheless suitable for strumming.

Conclusion: If you are looking for a really good playable guitar with a string set according to Martinstandard - which is absolutely necessary for a cleanly intonated game - the CLF 200 may need to be completely reworked - there may be one or another specimen which happens to be somewhat better arranged. This costs the guitar builder depending on the effort once again, so one is not able to carry out such measures themselves. The delicate construction helps to create a grand sound from the beginning - but there could be problems with the longevity - some flamenco guitarists consciously accept this risk. I play 11 strings a semitone pitch deeper tuned and therefore I do not have to worry about the load not much to worry, but the sinking of the ceiling in front of the bridge critical in the eye. And yet, even if she is still purring at the moment, it is difficult to put her out of her hand again.
