Great Entry level steel string
Glenn from Virginia, 29.05.2020
Great addition to my other Harley Bentons. I already own well over a dozen Harley Bentons including the classical nylon string model of this guitar, as well as the round body acoustic bass of this family (cousins). I'm a bassist and beginner guitarist but my wife is a performing musician. I bought this one to keep in the living room to grab when we hear a song of interest. Sounds good with strings replaced (the ones that came with it were not at all warm). The wood veneer decorative pieces needed a spot of glue, but all in all this is a decent guitar at a fantastic price that I would highly recommend for a beginner or student, or a good "beater" that you don't have to be fussy about where you set it or lay it down. The ABS round back lets you just lay it anywhere without worry about scratching it up or damaging it. Great value. Recommended.

Why did I wait so long?
Curreeney old boy, 28.11.2019
I've had my eye on these guitars for years and was hesitant to buy ,being put off by some poor reviews ,but I finally succumbed,
So what did I get?
A guitar that punches way above its price,I've owned a solid top guild dreadnought that didn't sound as sweet!
The set up was perfect sub2mm string height,super level fretwork,
Immaculate Finnish,
Slick machine head's,plus a nice sounding preamp.
I've only dropped 1star off this guitar for the sharp unfinished fret ends ,which was an easy fix,.
The only thing I would advise anyone buying this guitar to do is don't judge it's quality until you get rid of the weird strings it come fitted with! 10s my ear! I fitted Harley Benton coated 10s ,and gave the nut a quick dress with one of those small welding nozzle cleaning file kits you can pick up for 5 euros!.
Was I just fortunate to get a good one ,seems not because I bought my wife the blue one and it's just as good,if only I'd tried one before I'd have saved myself a fortune .

In love with this guitar
Macbell, 15.04.2020
When I first played this guitar, in fact, it was my teacher's guitar, I couldn't believe my...hands :-)
Next day I ordered one for me, in a different colour. Amazing guitar, value for money, amazing sense, amazing neck, too easy to play, amazing body, too comfortable, cool sound. The factory set up was perfect regarding my tastes.
All my musician friends, but all of them, when they saw and played with this guitar, asked me about the price. When they heard ithe price they could believe that it didn't cost 250-300 euro but just 100euro.
I would buy the same in a different colour.

Harley Benton HBO-850BK
KimH, 13.05.2015
FEATURES :
every thing is there from this iconic copy, all thats missing is the long haired wig, bandana, rip kneed jeans or spandex pants if you really must and a arm held aloft with the lighter burning.

SOUND :
after a string change the sound is very impressive for the price if a little shrill (only a little though). the volume is all there it projects its sound acousticlly wonderfully loud and proud. plugged in its not quite so good the volume is noticlbly unballanced with the middle strings alot louder than the outer strings. the sound is still good and clear just makes you play a little differntly to compensate for thr unballenced sound.

QUALITY :
paint job is good the 'Leaves' around the sound holes need a very good oiling as they are very dry and brittle. the tuners are adequit for the job. the neck feels lovely with the frets dressed superbly. the back shows a few ripples in places where its been moulded noticebly around the cutaway and neck, no big deal just with the fit and finish of this guitar and other harley bentons ive had its a shock to find a blemish at all.

CONCLUSION :
overall a good guitar that will be played alot.. no wheres me bandana and spandex :D
