Pleasantly surprised by this. Sounds and plays great, only downside was supplied strings. Changed them to a set of high tension Savarez and it really improved sound. Its also deceptively loud for its size.

Nice, original instrument

HeinerH, 12.02.2018
Nice, original instrument
Actually I wanted to try something cheap for the sofa. Normally I play a Takamine P7JC which of course is priced and sound course settled in another league, which one should not of course with the Harley Benton for 120 ¤ compare. But why should not even a cheap instrument be good? What speaks against it?
What a surprise when unpacking! From the box comes a beautiful and at first glance great processed instrument. That's how it should be. And that at the price.
Processing:
All paint surfaces are even and well processed. The edges in order and the plastic body looks great too. The Ovation moderate application on the ceiling are made relatively clean, even if they are not carefully stuck in place and partially dissolve. Neck and headstock also processed clean. But you feel and see in the light clear bulges from the loops, but do not bother while playing. But this is much better and has nothing to do with the price. But the string position is great. So on the whole a nice instrument. If there were not yet the frets. All frets are in this instrument hardly or only very badly polished and scraping the strings. Maybe I would have got married and polished myself. However, there are deep notches and clear sanding marks on the frets of the 5th to 8th frets. Here then my very high craftsmanship comes to its limits. That's just too much and makes this guitar unplayable. Unless you only want to play in the first 4 frets.
Sound and playability:
But then there's the big surprise. The Harley Benton is easy to play and very comfortable. The sound surprises for an instrument of this price range and construction. The guitar sounds quite open and not too quiet in spite of the certainly reasonably priced strings. At the amp (AER Compakt 60) it sounds really nice and with the zoom AC3 in between, it sounds really good. As I wanted to have it?
Conclusion:
Pity! Because of the sound, the good playability and the mostly good workmanship I would have kept the guitar. But because of the quality of the frets and the associated disadvantages, she goes back to Thoman. No problem with the good service.
So ordered a new one.
Lo and behold, unpack, tune and play. The same sound. Super string position. Neck set great, waistband excellent trained and polished. So everything is fine.
But to do a lot on the corpus. Edges recoloured in a range of 10 cm because the paint had chipped off. Ceiling applications and holes reground, as some frayed. Plastic body with plastic cleaner really nice and clean. Footbridge and fingerboard neatly cleaned and refreshed with lemon oil. New strings from D`Addario on it.
Not only does the guitar sound better, it also looks great. Nothing more with cheap instrument. A nice part to feel good.
