Very worthy budget instrument
T. Escobedo, 04.07.2020
This is the second Harley Benton GL-2NT I have purchased. I have been very satisfied with both. They're nicely made, attractively finished, budget tiny guitars. Laminated construction featuring minimal adornment is handsome in its simplicity. The only adjustment necessary was to file down approximately 2mm from the plastic saddle to bring action down to a more optimal level. Being very light and small, it still has decent volume and a lively tonal quality.

Being a very small instrument, with a very short scale, it might be tight for players with large hands to manipulate a full six strings. However, the 48mm neck width and string spacing are wider than many comparable 1/8 and 1/4 scale classical guitars, which are more cramped, presumably to accommodate children's hands. The Harley Benton's wider spacing helps adult hands more easily navigate the short scale length.

Though intended to be tuned ADGCEA using common classical guitar strings, I found it can be successfully tuned EADGBE using the inexpensive Pyramid 7String Classical Guitar Set (No. 344 200) sold here, discarding the high E and using the remaining set tuned standard. Doing this makes for a heavier, higher tension set that intonates and projects reasonably. This makes for a *very* portable travel guitar rather than "guitarlele". If that's what you desire, I can highly recommend this instrument.

Great for Travel and Fun, Amazing for the Price
Kostein, 28.06.2020
This guitarlele is by far the best quality for instrument that I've ever purchased. It has a clear, bright sound but with good depth of tone and surprising volume.

My wife purchased this to transition from ukulele to guitar, as she has mild arthritis and wanted something easy to play. I am a guitarist, with a dozen guitars, and was amazed at the how good this little guy sounds. It ends up on counters and tables because it is so fun to pick up and play, it goes in the car easily and my wife brings it on any trip longer than 10 minutes to play while we drive.

Pros:
Good sound, great value, easy to play, basically everything. Also a great starter instrument for kids or anyone with smaller or compromised hands.

Cons:
Not much, tiny amount of fret buzz, not noticeable and easily fixed.

We got this as a B-stock and it had a half centimetre nick on one side. It's barely visible and did not affect the instrument at all. I don't know if we just got lucky or if they're all this great.

Great fun in a small package
TheRedGen, 29.12.2019
I was looking for a small guitar to comfortably travel and play around with anywhere. As an inexperienced guitar player, I specifically looked for a small instrument as close to a regular guitar, to keep things simple.
This guitarlele proved to be just that. I love playing it and it offers exactly the portable fun I was looking for.

Amazing value for money!

Not a guitar, not a ukulele
yilong, 08.01.2020
I wanted to have a small-sized guitar and tried this one. It's 5 semi-tones higher than a guitar, which was ok at the beginning but I started to play less and less and go back to my full-size guitar. Actually, a 3/4 guitar is better for me as I want to keep the standard tuning (and do not want to change my chord fingering while playing)
