Good value for money
davedoes, 21.12.2020
Arrived today, this is not my first Harley Benton guitar but is my first electro acoustic from the range. First impressions were really good the guitar looked great. Started tuning to find that i had muted strings and fret buzz, not an issue as you get provided an allen key to adjust the rod and adjust the neck. Two minutes later nad the buzz and muted string issue is dealt with. This is the first time ive had to deal with that on a harley benton guitar sono probs. Once all tuned i was suprised to find a 9vlot battery provided, nice suprise. Plugged it in and happy with the tone. So why not 5 stars, well on the body where the neck meets the body i have small cracked finish due to neck movement, possibly from tension in the next but either way the finish is now not great. As this is for use in my home recording and not for show im ok with it, if it was for display on a wall etc i would have returned it as its not great to have the finish cracked on the first day of the guitar.

I can't believe how much I enjoy playing this guitar
Bonner, 04.09.2020
I added this guitar to my order as an afterthought. I needed an acoustic guitar with a pickup for those occasional "acoustic" gigs with amplification. Our band had recently played a gig where miscommunication resulted in our having to mic our guitars, and I thought this might be an economical way to deal with this. I had ordered a blue guitar for my son, and I added this during the wait for his to be delivered. I am really happy. The guitar looks amazing and plays beautifully. The only criticisms I have are that the tuning mechanisms could be a little better; and it is so new, that I can smell the glue from the body. That being said, a good set of locking tuners costs as much as this guitar! The neck is easy to play, and the action is amenable to leads in the higher neck positions. The frets were in need of a rub down with my polishing cloth, but that's all that was required. I really enjoy playing this guitar, and it has become my "go to" acoustic guitar. If you need a guitar like this, just order it and use the savings to buy it a hard shell case like I did.

Never had an ovation but i cant imagine it can be much different to this.

I had Thomann fit some of their own locking tuners to it and set it up for me (can recommend that its a good service) so cant comment on the standard tuners but the rest of it and for the price you really cant go wrong.
I know many say it but its not just good for the price its just good full stop.
sounds clear defined and fairly loud

Pros
Good locking and great sounds had the set up by thomann with their locking tuners added and stays in tune well and a good set up

Cons
Fussy and it would put the price up but id like to see a tuner on the pre amp

sounds great, plays great, but frets were a mess
Asad , 21.09.2018
pros-
-well slotted nut
-perfect intonation
-comfortable and easy to get used to
-flat fingerboard (personal taste)
-sounds great
-no finish flaws except a ding on the back of the headstock

cons-
-frets unpolished and scratchy
-last 3 frets weren't even round. they were sanded to the point they are flat
-leaves feel cheap
-whole guitar was a bit dirty with dust, fibre glass and glue resin. nothing that can't be fixed tho
*UPDATE*
the tuning machines are terrible and you might wanna change them if you use anything that isn't standard tuning. high E tuner makes cracking sounds when turning and the rest take a lot of turns to even catch on to the strings. I tried D standard and by the time I tuned the the E to a D, the rest of the strings were already out of tune
*update*
after figuring the tuners out, it's actually fine. just gotta retune a few times for it to stay there. Only issue is that frets are still scratchy, but not sharp and intonation is off and can't be adjusted without changing the bridge saddle
