This is a very good instrument.

DiscoDon, 08.11.2018
The sound is much lighter and more bouncy than my solid wood acoustics. Very well balanced. The guitar was set up excellently right out of the box (the low E was not in the nut, not sure how that happened. Put it back and everything was fine.)

Changed the strings to medium (13-56), sounds terrific.

Pros: This is a first line instrument. Thin neck, very playable, well setup, good tuning heads. Very light weight. Tuner works acceptably, electronics are just ok, knocked off a star for this.
No "finish flaws" that I could see, although the pick guard color is slightly off. More on that below.

Fits perfectly in suggested case. Was able to perform at an open mic with it the day it was received.

Cons:
The pickguard color does not match the color tones of the overall guitar finish. It is close, but it does not look like it goes with the guitar.

Several of the tuning machines anchor screws were stripped, and really not holding the tuning machines in. One tuning head was completely loose, only held in by the tension of the string. I corrected this by putting sawdust and Elmers glue in the screw holes, and reseating them. 100% good now.

This is a terrific value as a balanced tone, work horse acoustic guitar. The playability and attractiveness can't be beat, and it matches well with $800-$1000 acoustics at Guitar Center.

Harley Benton delivers again

Cash jr., 07.11.2017
After purchasing Harley Benton's Custom Line King (J200 copy), which was simply amazing, I had enough faith in HB to buy this new Hummingbird copy branded the Superior. I've played Epiphone Hummingbirds and, just like the King sounded way better than the Epiphone EJ200, this HB-built copy exceeds the Epiphone counterparts in every way. For less money you get a richer sound which comes a lot closer to the actual Gibson Hummingbirds than the sound that Epiphone delivers. As others have pointed out, the finish is perfect, although I'm more of a fan of cherrybursts than vintage sunbursts when it comes to Hummingbirds. That's personal taste obviously but it would be nice to have a choice, at this point the vintage sunburst is the only version of the Superior available. Other than that, this guitar exceeded all my expectations, just like the King did. In this price range these Harley Benton models are simply as good as they come.
