love it
graymac, 16.09.2020
I bought this thinking it would do nicely as a "general purpose dogsbody" guitar which I wouldn't need to worry about getting a knock or two - unlike my more expensive guitars. It's better than I expected.
The good stuff:
Very prettily finished, there are a couple of minor imperfections at the binding edges, but only noticeable if you look very hard and critically at it. Lovely neck and fingerboard, nice frets, no rough edges there. Action was fine for me, straight out the box. Unplugged, it is louder than I expected, compares well with my Ibanez Talman. Obviously not so much projection as a dreadnought - you couldn't expect it - but very useable all the same. Amped up, good tone (typical piezo undersaddle sound) and the 4 band EQ works well.
The bad stuff:
Nothing REALLY bad, but the tuning machines feel clunky, heavy and not nice to use. It seems to be stable enough once it is tuned but I'd consider fitting a better set at some point, Which, for a set of Klusons, would add about €40 on top. Still a lot cheaper than buying the Fender product, which is also not without its critics.
Overall, highly recommended as a good all-round top value guitar.

Update 3/10/2010: The clunky tuners were really getting to me, so I obtained a set of gold-plate finish ones (from Amazon - about €12, free postage) as well as some goldie roller string trees. Now I cannot fault the instrument, I took a bit of a gamble buying cheap tuners, yet even at that price they were much better than the factory ones. HB please note!

Full fretboard access with ease on an Acoustic Guitar!!!
Highlands Coconutboy, 27.10.2019
Fantastic guitar. It's a Fender Stratacoustic at a third of the price. I wanted an acoustic that gave full easy access to all the frets without the huge neck heel that most electric acoustic have. With this guitar, i can play it just like an electric for some acoustic Hendrix tunes. Also, this sounds amazing through my Yamaha THR5A Acoustic Amp. As far as quality goes, the binding isn't perfect with some overspray which wasnt polished out before it was lacquered; but that's just cosmetic. Frets are good with no sharp edges or flat spots. Action was a bit high, but after filing down the underside of the bridge a little bit; it's fine and plays great. Tuners of course aren't as good as expensive ones but they work and stay in tune. Strap button is on the upper horn rather than the neck heel as shown in photos, but that's better to avoid the strap getting in your hand's way when at the top end of the neck. No bad points in my opinion. Over all, very happy; but wish they did some different models with pretty flamed tops rather than only plain glossy black.

Great sound, will not stay in tune.
Rainier Fog, 09.07.2020
Good guitar for the price point. Great sound, good feel, and light weight in a Strat profile. However, the tuning machines are terrible - do not turn smoothly, tend to slip and will not hold a tune for long. Needed to tune out of the box and immediately snapped the high E. After replacing it, I noticed that all the strings need significant tuning after about 10 minutes of light practice. I am replacing the tuning machines with higher quality ones. It is still a good value guitar even after spending extra money on replacement tuning machines.

A great acoustic guitar that plays like an electric
Robert Peterson, 08.04.2021
I own a Fender "Stratacoustic" guitar (which this Harley Benton is based off) and the Harley Benton is nearly as good, but for less than half the cost. The Fender has slightly better piezo pickups and a built-in tuner, but overall the Fender isn't really "better" than the Harley Benton. The HB even has better tuners than the Fender.
If I had a time machine I'd have never bought the Fender and simply got this guitar and a clip-on tuner.
