Processing and setup fits "Made in China"

Frank65, 23.04.2010
I bought the guitar because I wanted to play a little guitar again as an old bass player. Since I am lefty and did not want to invest much money, I just bought this Harley Benton in the package with bag, plek, tuner and textbook.

Right at the time of unpacking, I noticed that the neck was crooked like a banana and the smurfs could dance under the Limbo strings. The strings are much too high and the neck is also straight, but the string is still not in it.
After all, I have so much experience with string instruments that I can improve the saddle notches and can also lower the bridge. Without this mechanical processing, a reasonable game on this instrument is not really great.

The strings have to be exchanged directly for new ones, since new strings are already a must for standard instruments, and the sound can definitely only be improved.

The frets are quite passable and reach for my purposes. The processing of the varnish is somewhat worse in some places and on the fingerboard there are still some white color or polish on the higher frets. But you can remove. At the neck I have an unsightly paint defect, which does not disturb however with the play.

As far as the sound is concerned, one can not complain after various adjustments. The guitar sounds transparent and clear to my amateur bassers. The built-in pickup with EQ is an advantage, which makes the removal of microphones in the hobby area unnecessary in many cases.

All in all, I would not recommend beginners to such a guitar, unless they are able to put the instrument into a thorough setup and properly adjust or rework.

I'm assuming that at this price a final check is not made by Thomann and I was also just about to return the thing directly back then but then because of the alternatives to the previous testing me nevertheless decided to keep the guitar and simply adjust itself .

The left-handed rock to start from scratch

Sonikoadizto, 09.08.2013
If you have never played the guitar and want to start, it is ideal, now, as an acoustic guitar if you already have an electric guitar or as a second acoustic guitar is not an option, the materials compared to others of higher range logically are poorer, but I would have I liked having this pack in my beginnings instead of the garbage I started to use. I threw back a few negative comments about this product, but in my case it has arrived without problems and sounds pretty good for what it is (I am accustomed to an epiphone of 400EUR), the finishes are correct and very light weight, the sound you have is pretty good if you do not need bass, because that's what guitar frets. Otherwise comfortable, the tuning keeps it quite well and the movement by the mast is quite fluid, and we will see how the time treats.
