Not as good as my CLD-41
TimThunder, 14.08.2019
I was really impressed by my HB CLD-41 in every way, I decided to purchase a CLD-28SCE. Sadly this one has been a let-down right out of the box. The Nut fell off, the action was too high no matter how much I adjusted the truss rod. The saddle must not be cut right. The sound of the guitar is just as excellent as the CLD-41, but the playablity and comfort is just not there. I must have gotten one of the duds. I'm sure a trainded luthier could fix this.

Un excellent rapport qualité-prix
Gild44, 11.07.2018
Si il y a encore quelques années les réparateurs de guitares soupiraient quand un client arrivait avec une Harley Benton, ce n'est plus le cas aujourd'hui. La Custom Line CLD-28SCE Walnut est un bon exemple de l'évolution très positive de cette marque. C'est une belle guitare, d'une bonne qualité de fabrication, facile à jouer avec un son puissant, bien équilibré sur l'ensemble de la gamme (au moins pour mes oreilles).
Le micro incorporé restitue bien le son acoustique, et l'accordeur intégré est vraiment pratique.

Klangwunder - Gut Ding braucht Weile
Alexander Rakocz, 04.06.2020
Leider kam hier erst eine Gitarre an, bei der die Saitenlage zu hoch war und sich nicht mehr einstellen ließ aufgrund fehlerhafter Trussrod. Thomann war so kulant die Gitarre gegen den Rücksendungsbeleg schon auszutauschen, um die Wartezeit zu verkürzen. Vielen Dank.

Die Verarbeitung:

Einwandfrei und gut. Man verzichtet auf überflüssigen Schnörkel und bietet eine massive Fichtendecke mit Knochensattel und Steg. Das finde erst mal in dieser Preisklasse. Bei reiner Studioanwendung ist der Tonabnehmer für mich überflüssig, der eingebaute Tuner ist gewöhnungsbedürftig. Der 3,90€ Clip kann es besser.

Der Klang:

Gegenspieler ist meine 74 € Harley Benton D-120CE TB. Das ist ein Witz aber tatsächlich ist sie Masstab was Druck und Fülle anbelangt. Wären Gitarren Stimmen, dann würde die 120CE mit kräftigem Ton etwas nuscheln, während die CLD-28SCE Walnut etwas dezenter klar und deutlich spricht.

Fazit:

Ein weiteres Klangwunder von Harley Benton. Ich habe jetzt nicht eine bessere Gitarre sondern eine andere. Während die D-120CE TB gut ist für mystisches finsteres Geschrummel, ist die CLD-28SCE Walnut gut für klare Ansagen. Hell, präsent, detailreich. 


Häufig werden diese Gitarren als Einsteigermodell bezeichnet, da sie aufgrund des günstigen Preises von Einsteigern gekauft werden. Gib die CLD-28SCE Walnut einem John McLaughlin und du weißt, wer hier der Einsteiger ist.
