Harley Benton GS-Travel-E Spruce
Experienced BRC, 03.06.2020
I have posted a review of this online.
Rather than rewrite that here I will simply say excellent value for money instrument, just right as a travel guitar, maybe not in a plane, but otherwise good tone, construction and playing comfort.
This is bought as a present for someone else, although I will set it up to suit them, though not much to do.
Probably the best value for money guitar I have ever handled, not the best guitar in the world though I would say there are many much more expensive guitars that would comapre badly against this. Even if you think it a risk at this price no real risk at all.

Top Cheap Guitar
slider, 06.05.2020
Huge sound came out of this guitar , the finish is very good, no sharp end frets, the fretboard needs a little oil , the gigbag is dope , come on, its a 30 euros bag in a 100 euros guitar, BUY this , i?ve already bought the mahogony version of the GS travel, but it was a faulty unit so sent it back , but they only had at the time in stock the spruce one, i didnt wanted to cause the other one has a lot of reviews and this one not. but man, this Spruce top guitar is 5 time better than the other one in mahogony , it sound a lot better , more mids , its fuller. Buy this and dont regret if it breaks.

great sound but finishing problems

The truss rod is overtighten so the fretboard is curved which causes buzz at any level.
In addition the ends of the frets are not well finished and scratch the fingers.
On the other hand the sound is very good, tuning machines are accurate.
Do not forget that this is an instrument priced at 109.00 euro with the internal pickup.
Without, it costs 98,00 euro ! Beautiful high gloss finish, V-shape uncoated neck profile, very comfortable.
It is a travel size with shorter 596 mm scale delivered with a nice gig bag.
For the price you can not find better. I have not tested it amplified but I rarely travel with an amp in my bag.
+ sound, machine heads, strings, travel size, gigbag, pickup (not tested).
- factory settings (trussrod) & finishes (frets), a little scratch on the side, you have to take the strings off to change the battery (!!!).
Try it, a must have!!

Quality cheap learners guitar
Gary6465, 23.12.2019
I looked at Thomanns range of 3/4 size acoustic guitars for my friends Chistmas gift to her, she isnt a large person and so needs a 3/4 size guitar in able to hold and play easily. I picked the GS-Travel with spruce top as the spruce will give a better tone and sound, i wasnt wrong, it is a very well made guitar with a really nice finish all round, my friend is very happy with her guitar, and loves it for its quality laquer finish on the top sound board and the semi rounded back and the neck, the head stock is a nice shape that suits the guitar and the black tuning heads make a nice touch, As for the sound, it rings beautifully when strummed and has a nice clear tone when picked, a bonus is that it can be plugged in to an amp, it sounds clean and has a really nice tone. Overall i think this is the best guitar you can buy for this money. I dont know how Harley Benton can make such nice quality guitars and sell them for the prices here at Thomanns.
