Wow and Wow!

HarleyBentonRocks, 09.11.2018
Wow for looks and Wow for build, playability and sound!

After I sold my Guild Westerly M-140 on Ebay, I have been ordering (and sending back) several guitars from Thomann during the last couple of weeks, some of them great, some of them disappointing. During this ?trial? period I was very pleasantly surprised by the build and sound quality of Thomann's Harley Benton guitars and the end result is that I now own 2 Harley Benton GS Travel guitars (Mahogany and Spruce, 89 euros each, great fun to play :-), a Harley Benton Custom Line CLA-15M (169 euros, great sound, great to play, fantastic guitar!) and now the Harley Benton CLF-200 WN parlor guitar.

I was really looking forward to this guitar and really hoped I would not be disappointed after reading all the positive reviews and watching the available YouTube clips that are available. Unpacking the guitar was the first WOW moment, what a great looking guitar! Build, finish and inlays are just incredible, what a beauty :-))

But I did not order this guitar for just sitting on it?s stand and be beautiful, so how does it sound and play? Let me tell you that the YouTube videos do not do this guitar justice and do not give you a good impression of the full sound of this parlor guitar. What really surprises me is the bass this small(er) guitar produces, I did not expect that and combined with the clear trebles, this produces a very nice and full sound. Especially when playing fingerstyle (which I prefer) the guitar produces a nice warm and intimate sound. But also playing with a pick will not disappoint you!

The build and finish are immaculate, as a personal preference I made the following adjustments:

1. I replaced the strings with my favorite Elixir Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze Custom Light 011-052
2. I adjusted the truss rod to lower the action to 2.25mm (low E, 12th fret) which results in a very nice and comfortable playing neck.

With these 2 adjustments this beauty plays like butter and really sings. But again, this is a personal preference and made with playing fingerstyle in mind.

The only thing I have my doubts about is the quality of tuners but they can be replaced.

With this guitar I came to the end of my ?journey? to find a not too expensive, good sounding and nice playing guitar. I never expected to end up with 4 great Harley Benton guitars for the price I sold my Guild Westerly on Ebay.

Thank you for producing these great affordable instruments and proving that quality can be affordable for everyone. And thank you very much for your service and patience!

Thomann and Harley Benton rock!

Perfect for chill

Andrei M, 28.06.2018
Really beautiful guitar as a part of interior. Nice, slightly smaller then usual guitar to chill on the sofa. Not loud, just what you need to enjoy on your own.
Build quality is outstanding, I just tightened a bit screw in the neck to make it a bit flatter and that's it.
