Awesome value
Glenn from Virginia, 14.02.2020
First, I own 16 Harley Benton guitars and basses...love 'em all. My wife is the musician....I'm a beginner bassist and I bought this for myself to dabble in guitar and learn some chords so that I can better relate my bass playing to what the band is doing. Wanted a classical with wider nut and neck so I could more cleanly fret the chords while learning. This guitar sounds and plays quite nicely, and has become a favorite of my wife too (who ironically says she likes a narrow fretboard). It really is an outstanding value and a nice looking round back guitar....I have no idea how they can sell this for what they charge. The quality is very good, fret ends ok. The wood veneer designs glued on could use some minor sanding and oiling to be perfect. Really like this guitar, as well as all my other Harley Bentons. Outstanding value...just ordered 4 more HB's....nice work Thomann!

After watching hundreds of Youtube reviews on HB quality, I'm disappointed
PoorMan's Budget, 07.04.2020
For the money I expect a few minor defects. One at the base of the neck below the fretboard was extremely obvious. The rest of the finish was fine.
The setup was poor. The action was high, the neck bowed and a good deal of buzzing. Also the frets on both sides of the fretboard will bite you they're so rough. If I keep it, it will take several hours of work to get it in shape.
Maybe it's the luck of the draw. It's my first HB and the reviews online were all raving about overall quality of their products.

Great guitar for this price
Roman Kislenok, 01.11.2020
Bought this guitar to practice at home. Stock strings sounds awful, you should change them as soon as possible. Then it'll sound pretty well.
This guitar is very different from normal one: it's thin and it has rounded back so it's hard to handle it without belt (so you should buy it too).

In some reviews I've read that there could be some problems with quality, but my version if cool.

Would recommend this guitar for starters like me

Opened the box and .......surprise! Looks better than the photos. Stunning!
Tuned it up and sounds good acoustically. Not like a full classic but nonetheless good for all around.
Plugged in and the guitar truly comes alive. Rival to more expensive guitars I've come around.
Very good investment, I recommend!
Thanks to Thomann!
