Is it the best nylon string guitar I've played? Nope. Probably not in the top 10 either. But wait, how much was it?
I wanted a nylon string acoustic and I didn't want to spend a lot, just to play around the house and for demos etc. Having had very positive experiences with other Harley Benton instruments I thought I'd try this: it has a built-in preamp with 3-band EQ, and a tuner, and I liked that it is slightly thinner body than normal. It didn't disappoint and I cannot put it down since I received it. Not sure what kind of woods are involved as everything is coated in black, and the fingerboard looks like some kind of synthetic material, but it feels good. The sound lacks the resonance of a good classical guitar (costing many hundreds more!) but it has a sweet sound. Yes, there are some little internal rattles, but very subtle and hard to notice when playing. The frets are well seated without sharp edges and plays beautifully. The preamp/piezo system is, as you'd expect, not top quality and it can sound a bit harsh when plugged in directly to a recording interface, but the built-in EQ helps sweeten it, and if you use an external decent preamp and a touch of reverb it can sound surprisingly good. I prefer to use a microphone for quick recordings as its natural sound is pretty nice, just lacking a bit of body, but with some minimal processing its built-in piezo system can give very nice results. Overall, I am very happy I bought it. If you want a serious classical instrument this is not it, but then you can't expect that for only 100 euros. If you just want a nylon string guitar that plays nicely amplified or not, I find it extremely good value.

CG-400CE

i bought this guitar mainly as a little experiment, Harley Benton have impressed me with their steel string acoustics and their electrics.
A friend bought one of the low level telecasters and i have to say the quality really (pleasantly) surprised me.

The way i saw it at the price the CG-400CE Thinline BK would either be a useful tool for my studio (NEMIX STUDIOS LTD) or a fun toy for myself at home, i am happy to inform you it has turned out to be both.

The onboard electronics are sharp, well fitted and easy to use, the tuner is fantastic, way better than i have ever seen on a 'cheaper' guitar and the wood work is perfectly adequate. I have tested it through several acoustic amplifiers and also my PA system and have had no issues achieving the sound i wanted.

The string spacing is perfect for beginners or perfect for an electric player who wishes to transition and it is very, very light.

It sounds great whether fingerpicked, flat picked or thumb picked and is the perfect affordable addition to your collection. I highly recommend this guitar to anyone looking for , as i said, a useful tool or an enjoyable toy!

Excellent Rapport Qualité Prix

De bonne facture, cette guitare a une caisse fine, élégante et un manche très agréable.
J'ai eu quelques difficultés à lui faire tenir l'accordage au début mais après un peu de temps, la tenue est correcte.
Rien à redire niveau electro, j'ai enregistré avec sans accros,

Cette guitare est une réussite et est devenue ma classique préférée, surtout pour cette tranche de prix. Je recommande.

Für den Preis konkurrenzlos!
Das gute Stück kam tadellos eingestellt, Stecker rein und los!
Der pickup ist einwandfrei, , die Kämpfe ist super zu bespielen, die Optik finde ich toll und die Verarbeitung ist tadellos.
Abstriche nur wegen fehlender Gurtpins und der akustische Sound ist eher bescheiden, aber deswegen wurde sie nicht bestellt.
Insgesamt eine Freude und Kaufempfehlung für Akustiker, dies gern elektrisch haben!
