THIS......... is special!!!
Grey Gull, 17.02.2019
Budget guitars(when done right) can be grouped in 2 categories, 1: To give you good fundamentals, and a solid platform(allowing you to build up the guitar), and 2: To do something 'off label', and allow guitarists to take a risk, and maybe find something special.

This guitar is something special, and mine is perfect(from the woods, the construction, the paint, the finishes, it's flawless, literally).
Being a guitar without binding, without wood-filler, and without PU-finish, it really allows the wood to sound-out, and that it does, it's a very lively guitar-sound, and it's very loud(even though the O is a smaller guitar than the regular Dreadnought, it can easily keep up with normal Dreadnoughts).
The tuners are solid die-cast, nice and heavy, good grip(on the string, and the buttons), which makes them very stable.
The nut/saddle/pins are very neutral(no muddling of the strings at all), and have a finish(that makes them look a lot more classy, than the normal ABS stuff).
The blackwood(fingerboard/saddle construction) is great, it's a more natural wood(sometimes blackwood can be very dried out(very 'toasted'), this is very healthy-, almost 'juicy'-blackwood, with a very gentle, natural touch, that plays out-of-the-box, like you played it for years.
The construction on mine is very clean, and very precise(the bridge is perfect, the neck is perfect, and the binding-free construction is perfect.

In short, I love this guitar, it does something unusual in being very natural, very raw in it's build, and it works out perfectly, allowing for a very natural guitar, that plays out-of-the-box, as if it's been in your family for generations.

Great Cool Guitar
The Mad Turtle, 27.02.2019
I got to be honest, I wasn't expecting a great deal with this guitar, but it completely blew my mind.
Unfortunately I had to sell my previous acoustic guitar, which was a Washburn Festival Series Limited Edition, a great guitar with great sound and finish, 17 years old, and this Harley Benton had/has the difficult job of replacing it.
And so far it has! Granted, it's not as good in terms of aspect and finish, but it has a great sound and it's really easy to play, with lower action than most acoustic guitars I've played. If you examine or just take a closer look at the guitar you can see some minor issues in the finish, but nothing extraordinary, even less at this price. The wood doesn't seem like great quality, but fear not: this guitar has a great sound for it's price, and it's really easy to play.
