A lovely little guitar at any price
Jimbike 26.05.2017
I have been looking for a small guitar with a wider nut, comfortable for the sofa, that compressed sound but still sweet and have been looking at expensive ones I can't stretch to those at the moment so gave this a go.

Well my wife is sure they have sent me the wrong guitar.

From the box it looks beautiful, very neatly made, no stray glue, classy inlays, no sharp fret ends, bone nut and saddle. The nut was well cut, the action was a little high for me but easily sorted.
Playing, the sound is very good, the bass is clear and has that mahogany mellowness, strong midrange and not too trebly highs. All very clear with good sustain and volume.

The neck is comfortable and not too wide. I was amazed to find the frets are perfectly level. I have played a few guitars of various prices and very few have perfect frets. I cannot find a note that chokes even on the unplayable end. Plugged in sounds better than my expensive guitar.
The only thing that lets it down are the plastic bridge pins.

I love this guitar at any price

Update: After two years the neck is slightly twisting but not fatal yet.


Incredible value - needs a setup
MoDizzle 12.08.2022
I purchased this guitar as a starter guitar for my partner and I initially gave it a setup. It played fine when arriving but the frets needed polishing (very scratchy) the nut slots needed to be lowered and the saddle height also needed to be lowered to make the action nice for a beginner.

After this was done, the guitar played nicely and more importantly, sounded really nice. It has a pokey parlour sound, and is rich and sweet. 80/20 bronze strings help to keep clarity as i found phosphor bronze ended up getting a bit lost.

The finish is super thin and chips off easily so beware of that and it can gloss up easily. Using 0000 steel wool with the grain keeps the matte look.

Overall I'm super impressed with the guitar and dont hesitate to recommend it.


Difficult to put down.
I own a Harley. (Benton). 29.03.2022
Love the size. Great for sitting on the couch, better than a bulky dreadnaught. Has good sound, projects fairly loud for its size. Set up nicely right out of the box. I like the snowflak inlays although a little difficult to get used to the 7th and 9th frets having double snowflakes. When I think I am sliding up to the 11th fret, it turns out I only went to the 8th. Lol. I'll get used to it. I'm not too happy about the "eye of Horus" inlay on the 12th fret. It might just give me cause to buy the Harly 100 series parlor with the round inlays.
All in all, I do like it.
