Not bad at all
graymac, 07.04.2020
This is the third HB guitar I've bought and it's also the cheapest one as well. (I have the GS Travel-E Mahogany and the HBO-600TB's "brother", the classic nylon string HBO-850).
Out of the box, looked well enough and even seemed to be in tune already (it was, relatively, but not to concert pitch). A quick retune and I gave it a go. The frets aren't dressed as nicely
as the other HB were when they arrived. I will look to that later. The worst fault was the neck relief, although that was simply down to truss rod adjustment, which fixed it. Again, the other HBs didn't need attention. Some say that Harley Bentons can be a bit of "pot luck" whether you get a Mercedes or a Lada!! The two bad points I listed don't make it a bad guitar. With a little attention this guitar will be fine, perhaps a bit more care at the factory?? . I was lucky with the other two anyway, and to be fair I've heard quality complaints about the expensive brands too, so no huge deal.
Honestly, you cannot beat the price and when set up nicely the guitar is surprisingly good. The pickup works well, I imagine most players of this type of instrument use some amplification and I'm not disappointed with it. Unplugged it's "very good" rather than "outstanding" - but for heaven's sake, at under €90 I'd be justified in saying it's incredible! I will be changing the strings, the factory ones work but I suspect my usual brand will be better. I'll dress the frets at the same time then it WILL be a great little guitar.

Extra comment: Three days after the unboxing. I haven't changed the strings or given the frets a "beauty treatment" yet, but I've played it a lot since it arrived and I have to say I'm getting more fond of it all the time. A cheap guitar just shouldn't be this good.

Great balance of price and quality
Georgios of Athens, 07.05.2020
Great value for money. It has an awesome unplugged sound or plugged it in the amplifier or console studio. Especially on recordings it does the job with great excellence and exceeds all expectations. The front panel maybe feels a bit thin to some and the roundback is kind of slippery if you have not encountered this kind of body before, but you get familiar with this in absolutely no time, Overall is an absolutely great affordable solution and money well spent.

ein Schmuckstück für sehr wenig Geld!
Mr. Nightingale, 14.05.2021
neben drei E-Gitarren, einer Klassikgitarre, einer 12-Saiter und einem Bass sei ja noch Platz, dachte ich mir. Eine einfache 6-Saiter Westergitarre wäre was, den Klang mag ich und ist mit keinem noch so tollen Effekt mit ner E-Gitarre nachzustellen.
Da es die x-te Gitarre nur für den Spaß sein sollte, vielen Ovation und co von vorneherein raus.
Diese Harley Benton war gut bewertet, mit dem eher flachen Roundback eher kompakt, also ham wir das Teil mal bestellt.

Erster Eindruck: schön. Fühlt sich toll an. Ganz gut verarbeitet.
Zweiter Eindruck: klingt gut. Ist nicht besonders laut (klar, kleiner Korpus), aber doch recht durchsetzungsfähig. Spielt sich gut, aber nicht perfekt.

Die Verarbeitung ist wirklich in Ordnung. Klar ließe sich an der Abrichtung der Bünde was verbessern und bessere Mechaniken wären gut. Aber das ist nix schlimmes, spielen und stimmen geht ohne Beeinträchtigung.

Die Saiten sind eher nix, fühlen sich rau und steif an, also gleich mal neue bestellt, 10er statt der aufgezogenen 11er (ich mag es nicht so dick). Die Saitenlage und die Halskrümmung dagegen sind ohne Tadel.

Klanglich ist die Gitarre ausgewogen, warm und hell. Sowohl pur als auch per PU gefällt es mir. Über PU bin ich erst direkt ins Mischpult gegangen, hab aber auch über Bodentreter und BluGitar BluBox gespielt. Geht beides, mir hat es mit der Cab-Sim besser gefallen.

Fazit:
Die Gitarre ist wirklich zu empfehlen, da hat auch ein Anfänger Spaß dran! Dann sind vermutlich sogar 11er Saiten sinnig, denn die schnarren nicht so schnell. Den Roundback muss man mögen, ich komme gut damit zurecht, es fühlt sich in Bezug auf die Spielhaltung mehr nach E-Gitarre an.
An das Niveau einer 1000 € Klampfe kommt die HB nicht ran, aber das darf man auch nicht erwarten. Sie klingt aber nach deutlich mehr als 90 €!
Auf jeden fall bekommst Du eine wirklich gute Gitarre für ein überschaubares Budget!
