Absolutely love this guitar
Tips, 14.07.2019
The last couple of years I tried a lot of different acoustic guitars, but I never really fell in love with one. There Always seemed to be something missing on all of them (epihone/Sigma).
Kind of lost hope in finding a good fun acoustic guitar. After hearing a lot of good talk about the Harley Bentons I thought, what the hell, let's try one. And A
am I glad I did.
The guitar sounds really good. Very powerfull on single notes with the convenience of a smaller body than a dreadnought.
Was it perfect on arrival? No, Action was way too high at the 12th fret. But because it was so cheap, I decided to lower the action on an acoustic guitar for the first time by myself. And now it plays like a dream.
Is it better than a Martin: Probably not, but I played acoustics that were 3 times as expensive as this one that didn't sound half as good.
It is a no brainer. Just go for it.

Just superb
Dusko, 14.02.2017
I thought it was time to get a solid top steel string acoustic guitar but money is short so I looked at the more affordable brands, and knowing from my electric Harley Bentons that they do good quality instruments I looked no further I went for this one which is the cheapest in their 000 guitars.

I was not surprised to receive a very well built guitar. Satin finish perfect. Neck just right, not fat not too thin. No fret buzz at all, frets nicely polished and finished. Fretboard needed no oiling. The strings were fresh looking (no rust or discolorations). Tuners hold well in tune. The action is 2mm - 2.5mm perfect for me.

Its a very projecting sound, very clear but also has some depth to it even though its not a dreadnought guitar. ?

Just buy this you will not regret it and if you do Thomann has a fantastic return policy and is very customer service orinetated.
