King of the Guitars, the Harley Benton HB Custom Line King-CE BK
HarleyManuuuu, 14.07.2020
The Gibson SJ-200 Standard, thats the guitar where I was looking for. So to be honest I am just a guy who likes guitars and try to do some musical things as a hobby. If you look at the price of a Gibson, then $4,499.00 I can't explain at home. So I looked at the Epiphone EJ-200SCE for $449.00 and that my friends I could explain to my family. However, on my search for this guitar another interesting guitar came on my way. The Harley Benton HB Custom Line King-CE BK for the price of $269.00.
If I judge my own guitar playing, then actually $269.00 is more than enough to spend haha. But, I dive into this model and listen to some reviews and then I became more and more enthusiastic about this German built in China ;-) beautiful crafted piece of wood.

When I ordered this Guitar I asked the team to take my new Guitar to the plek service because I wanted a good playability of the Guitar. I choose the PLEK NUT service. So I don't know the playability of the Guitar when it is standard out of the box. However I can tell you how it sound and plays after the PLEK service...

What an amazing Guitar for this price, String action & intonation adjustment where great it could have not been done better.

EXCELLENT JOB WELL DONE... Thank You Thomann for the great product and thank you Guitar Service Team,..

Great after a bit of work
Puntaprimapete, 21.01.2019
I already owned an Epiphone EJ200 in a natural finish but always fancied having one in black. I couldn't justify buying the same guitar again just to have a choice of colour but then I discovered The big King. It looked the same for less than half the price.
On opening the box I was impressed with the quality of the finish and could find no faults at all it's actually better than the Epiphone especially on the bindings.
It played ok but the action was too high for my taste. I had to take a bit of relief out of the neck and quite a lot off the saddle to get it right. Also I had to lower the nut slots on the high E and B strings to make them easier to fret at the 1st.
Comparing it to the Epiphone it looks just as good apart from the pickguard which looks a bit cheap. I replaced mine with an epiphone one and it looks loads better,
Sounds: you don't get as much bass from this the body is a bit narrower back to front but this makes it more comfortable to play and you do get a beautiful clarity from this that you don't with the epiphone.
I think the pick up system/tuner is adequate but not as good as the epiphone but this really doesn't bother me as I hardly ever plug in.
I've had this a couple of months now and I love it. I use it more than the epiphone and that says it all really

Excellent value, great looks and tone
06.01.2015
I have been looking for a jumbo guitar for quite a while and was really pleased to spot this one. It was its looks which first caught my eye and the glossy black finish has not disappointed once I had it in my hands. It is deep and lustrous and the detailing add greatly to the overall look. The action was better than I might have expected from a brand new instrument and the intonation is consistent at every fret. The sound is great and has the depth and quality I have been looking for. the onboard electronics allow a great range of tonal qualities and the tuner is easy to use and clear to read. I'm really pleased with this purchase. As with other things, the ordering and online payment are simple and the packaging was superb. I was taken aback just how quickly the goods were delivered. Superb all round
