High-tech meets old masters
Looking from the front it looks like a conventional guitar, from the back it’s all high-tech: the Harley Benton HBO-600BK combines the most modern materials with the knowledge of the lute makers of the past. They knew back then that a rounded body sounds different from a conventional box. Not louder, but softer, more resonant... A wooden rounded body is a very costly affair but luckily, nowadays, it can be shaped from modern ABS. Add the pickups - and you get a stage guitar of a special kind.
Crisp highs, compressed tone
With its black lacquered spruce sound board and glossed body shell, the Harley Benton HBO-600BK has its own unique personality. When played acoustically, the shallow bowl gives a slender tone, which is focused through the central sound hole. The X-braced spruce sound board adds slightly compressed and crisp highs. The pickup inserted under the bridge works wonders and the output can then be finely tuned in the bass, mids and trebles. The neck is made of mahogany and the fingerboard of dark roseacer. With its width of 43 millimetres and a comfortable C-profile, it adjusts perfectly to one’s hand.
For fans and those who want to become so
The characteristics of the Harley Benton HBO-600BK naturally suit it for the stage. This type of roundback guitar has a dedicated fan community - and no matter what the style, they will always use these instruments. The HBO-600BK provides roundback fans on a limited budget with access to the instrument of their dreams. However, its potential is fully realised on stage, where the guitar can easily be amplified to ear-splitting levels and played for hours (using a strap) thanks to its thin rounded body.
