I was searching for affordable acoustic guitar for camping, and as I'm used to play on electric guitar I wanted to have fast and smooth neck, with a cut to higher frets..
Already have Fender CD60, but never liked her neck and playability.

Sound on HB 600 is a little bit high and thin, when compared to full body dreadnought Fender CD60. But it is loud enough, little bit short on lows, which is expected on roundback slim body guitar like this. And of course like any other roundback guitar, it will tend to slide from you if there is no strap around sholders. Back surface is not slippery, but guitar will slide a little, it is just phisycs.
Sound through preamp is kind of "sinthetyc", like in all affordable electro-acoustic guitars. If one needs a good sound for amp, maybe it is better solution to buy decent acoustic pickup like SD Woody or simmilar.
One more thing that needs some attention, are the frets. They need a good and thorough polishing, because they are rough. Also the fretboard needs some oil, as it is very dry out of the box.
But taking in consideration low price of guitar, in my opinion it still worth the money...and even more..

Now the good points. After polishing, oiling, changing strings to 9-46, and some truss rod adjustment, this is completely diferent guitar. Neck is fast and playable, joy to playing. Action is even lower than on some of my electric guitars, octaves are 100% set.

Guitar also looks very nice, and for now guitar stays in tune. There is no point of comparing it to Ovation of course, but in my opinion you will get more than you paid for.

Not bad but....
Thomas_ancas, 26.10.2019
Excellent balance between quality and price ......BUT....
it has an ergonomic design problem.
It can not ''fit'' at your body and stay stand because of the curve of it's back.It slips away when you leave your left hand from the neck because of the right hand's weight and the curve of the synthetic back which touch your leg when you sit. One solution is the strap belt i guess....this is the main con of the instrument (i am not sure if it happens to all synthetic back type guitars, like ovation) .
The main pros is the amazing work of the neck and the perfect action for this cheap guitar.

great guitar
tik0s, 02.01.2020
so this is not a cheap guitar that is poorly constructed like other guitars in this price range. this is a great guitar the tone is clear and spanky. only had to adjust bridge height and the neck was spot on, great guitar for the money.

Harley Benton HBO 600NT roundback
Stuart7862, 15.02.2014
1 wanted to get a cheap round back and stumbled across this on the internet. Great looks, great sound, (acoustic and plugged in) that resonates well, and with a little tinkering with the truss rod (loosened about half a turn with the supplied key) got a nice playable action with no buzzing. The only issue I had with it when I received it was a slight string buzz (truss rod adjustment sorted this out) and the decoration around the sound hole was loose (a dab of super glue sorted this)
For £70 + £10 postage, what a deal, it came well packed and only took two days to get from Germany to the UK. A++
