A very well made Ukulele with a difference
Raymond588, 18.08.2018
I have been playing the ukulele now for about 5 years and have 3 ukes and a banjolele that I really enjoy playing with in a band.

I decided I would like to learn a 3 or 4 string cigar box guitar but worried I would have to relearn guitar chords. Then purely by accident, I come across this little beauty in the Ukulele section of Thomann. Perfect. A wonderful looking HARLEY BENTON cigar box UKULELE. Concert size and extremely different but I could still use uke chords for under 70 Euros.

Without hesitation, I added this to the list of equipment I was about to buy from Thomann. When it arrived, after only 3 days I was over the moon with it. The Spruce body was so solidly built with a cigar label printed into the actual body. Both back and front. Tough as old boots but so well made with beautiful machine head tuners and a very straight neck made from Okoume which I found on line, was as strong as Maple. The Blackwood fingerboard had a lovely cream edging to it. It is gorgeous and can even stand upright on the table, without support, between playing Although it is an acoustic model, if needed can easily be converted to electro by buying a very cheap pick up system, but I like it as it is. It sounds great.
It is so easy to play with a standard ukulele strap clipped to one of its 2 holes or just gripped under the right arm.

I have played this uke with a microphone at a couple of our gigs and everybody has come over to inspect it with very good feedback.
It even comes with a very strong, padded case, so for 68 Euros you can not go wrong.

Buy one while they still have them.

Ukulele is fun again
Ukulelekid, 13.08.2017
Bought on a whim but was pleasantly surprised by the high quality fit and finish. The slotted headstock and really nicely finished neck are a real plus. Strangely I feel the Aquila's don't suit this instrument so I'll be trying something different but all in all I think the Harley Benton Cigar box uke has put some of the real fun back into the ukulele. Highly recommended.
