Very different than expected

René P., 14.03.2012
After I got for 111, - the 12-string by Harley Benton and thus was really satisfied, I had at the Jumbo for 159, - already set some expectations. But the disillusionment hit me hard. When unpacking I immediately noticed the very light weight, the finish which looked like plastic and some flaws that made me believe that I had sent me a guitar from the discounted B-Stock.

1. The tuning mechanism looks like a chrome in the photo. But there are white plastic mechanisms.
2. The dashboard had no protective foil, detached itself from the head and had spots.
3. The strings looked worn.
4. The string pins looked as if they would slip out at any moment.
5. In the cutaway was a minimal paint damage
6. The battery compartment looked as if it could not be fully closed.
7. The covenants push one's hand when one slides over the neck ridge. They are not carefully deburred.
8. The bridge was of semi-transparent plastic

So much for processing.

To the sound:
Have it only with the worksites tested and must say that it sounds enough if you are looking for a beginner guitar. The depths have been a little missing and the high string position makes a gripping in the 12th fret very stressful. Could certainly but still adjust.
It also provides a clear sound via an acoustic amp. A good setting by EQ is quickly found.
To test the volume, I compared them with a 12-string Harley Benton and a Western guitar from ESP for 250, -. The jumbo is essentially the same as the loudspeaker, but it does not exceed it. I expect more from a jumbo.

Perhaps the great anticipation made me expect too much. But I can not recommend this guitar. Overall, it simply works to cheap and clumsy processing.

Conclusion: In my opinion, Harley Benton does not stand for cheap articles. With my 12-string HB I am quite satisfied. I also know the sound of HB Half Stags, which is very convincing. But this guitar was just too much wrong.

Lots of money for little money!

KaiK, 16.10.2009
Have for about 4 weeks a Harley Benton HBJC503CEQ NT and am perfectly satisfied with this instrument!

At first, there was great uncertainty when ordering whether this guitar could have a nice sound for under 200 euros at all? And then synonymous with pickup, equalizer and mother-of-pearl inlays?

Answer: Yes, she can and even with a surprisingly good result. The sound is very clear and warm, which is also desirable for a jumbog guitar! The basses and the mids come out very nicely, although this does not mean that the highs are going down. The processing is good above the price level! Clean and precise processing reflect the instrument. The equalizer can be adjusted well and is clearly structured, whereby the volume regulator was a little too small.

Conclusion: The Harley Benton HBJC503CEQ do not need to hide before Jumbogitarren in the price range 300-400 euro. The instrument has a nice sound color and a good processing above the price level. Total: 5 stars and a purchase recommendation!
