Perfecta!

La guitarra es tal cual se ve en las imágenes, tiene un acabado perfecto y el sonido es increíble.
La he comparado con una Tanglewood que costó mucho más y no hay diferencia, más allá de una diferencia normal dado que la forma del cuerpo de ambas guitarras es diferente.
Estoy encantada con cómo suena y con lo ligera que es. También es bastante cómoda a la hora de tocar ya que no hace falta apretar demasiado, no está dura como otras.

En resumen, increíble por el precio que tiene, la recomiendo sin duda!

You get what you pay for

It’s a budget guitar and build quality is reflected in that.

There is a section where the cutter went too deep when making the groove for the banding leaving a spot where light shines through the body. It’s not visible from the outside only when you hold the guitar up to a light source and look inside. There’s no high gloss polished finish, it’s a bare stained wood. The frets at the edge feel a bit rough but definitely not rough enough to hurt your fingers. Does this effect the sound, certainly not. It sounds like an acoustic guitar (I can’t speak about the electrics because I haven’t plugged it in to an amp yet). It seems to stay in tune to my ears; unlike a cheap copy of the Gibson SG I own - from a brand that shall not be named for legal reasons (it’s not Harley Benton) - which never stays in tune. I have to tune that after 5 minutes of trying to play it.

Overall: the HBCG-45E is cheap, it plays, what more do you need. It’s a good cheap guitar to start off on. I recommend it for beginners who don’t want to spend a lot of money starting off.

WOW What a Nice Surprise
Tezzer 20.12.2021
I'd been hearing about HB guitars for a while and decided to give one a try. I wasn't really expecting anything amazing for the price but I just wanted a cheap acoustic for carrying around with me.

I recieved the guitar after four days to the UK and was very surprised when I opened the box. The first thing I noticed was the finish, it's really nice. The pictures don't do it justice at all. Intonation was spot on but the action was a little high for my liking so I adjusted the truss rod and its fine now. The fretboard is ok but a little dry so will be applying some sort of fret board oil on the next restring. The guitar is really loud and bright when played acoustically and fills the room with sound. Plugged in it sounds just fine, no issues there.

In all I'm very impressed wit the standard of build quality and the sound. It has the look, feel and tone of a much more expensive instrument so at the price its listed for, in my opinion, it's an absolute bargain. Got my eyes on a double cut sg style electric next. Can't wait to try it out.

Great sound for great price!

Before ordering this guitar I checked reviews, they were all quite enthusiastic and positive which made me a bit suspicious.
But then I got the guitar and my suspicion was over. This guitar sounds amazing when finger picking, sounds very well when struming, it stays in tune with and without capos. Build quality is quite decent (frets could be sanded a bit, but its not a deal breaker) and the tuners do their job. Sound volume is also very good although I'd rather use it for finger picking than struming.

One thing that really amazed me was the pickup. About 25 years ago I bought an Ovation round back and its pickup sounds like an AM radio. I didn't expect much more from this HB folk, but I was blown away when I hooked it up to the mixer. It sounds crisp with lots of presence, just the way an acoustic guitar should sound.

Guys, you did a great job, and I've already placed my next order today. Keep up the good work!
