Almost as silent as a silent guitar
xmac 11.05.2022
I bought this guitar to fit the same purpose as my Yamaha Silent Guitar, being able to practice in an apartment building at any time, day or night, but I want a guitar in a different tuning, and it fits the need perfectly! It's ever so slightly louder but it still no where near as loud as a normal classical guitar.

The neck, is smooth and fast, I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable it was to play. The nut is 52mm, so if you're more of a purist and were put off by the Yamaha Silent Guitar 50mm, or the 48mm of the Harley Benton Nashville, you won't have that concern here.

I play it unplugged so I have no input about what it actually sounds like plugged in but I have no plans on using it like anytime soon.

If this guitar was available when I bought my Yamaha Silent Guitar, I think I would've had a tough time deciding which to settle on.
Overall though, the Yamaha is a better quality neck (it has a unique body so I won't compare that) and it has the whole being able to plug headphones into it thing going on.

In regards to the finish, if you like wood grain and wood colours, the front, back, neck and head stock are all different shades with nice visible wood textures.

I welcome this guitar to my collection with open arms and look forward to more guitars of this hybrid nylon nature coming out in the future.

amazing for the price
Saint Wibbler 01.04.2022
Lovely little thing, a few markings on the final polish (on the neck of the guitar) but apart from that is one hell of a guitar

Here are some songs I made with it and there is no eq or audio effects on the guitar track so it's how it will sound for you also

plugged into an audio interface no with EQ
with a mic with no EQ

No musical sound
hughbido 03.06.2023
The size and specification is good. But the nylon strings guitar cannot create a musical sound.

I have had a professional setup with Feline guitars whose article about their abilities appeared in guitarist magazine and have setup at least 6 of my 16 guitars. Still it sounds hopeless. The failing I believe is to treat this nylon string as a steel string afterthought.

The enormous block inside under the bridge kills the correct resonance needed for nylon string. Therefore changing the pickup will make no difference. I suggest that they remove this block, which isn't needed for the lighter tension of nylon, and replace the pickup with a Fishman OEM INK 401

sehr zufrieden.
gelheimer 15.06.2022
Ich spiele auf der Bühne eine Godin Konzertgitarre Multiac, dieses Instrument ist rückkopplungsfrei und erfüllt alle meine Wünsche.
Als Ersatzgitarre brauche ich aber eine Gitarre, welche ich im Proberaum oder auch auf der Bühne einsetzen kann, und die die gleichen Anforderungen erfüllt und sie soll auch günstiger sein.
Diese Voraussetzungen erfüllt die Harley Benton.
Der Hals ist halt klobiger als bei der Godin, und auch die Möglichkeiten, den Sound zu verändern, sind natürlich nicht so gegeben.
Aber der Vorteil ist, daß die Harley Benton keine Batterie braucht, das Kabel kann im Instrument bleiben, und der Tonregler ist effektiv, und klingt in der Mittelstellung ziemlich neutral.
Der Klang ist erstaunlich konzertant, Bass, Mitten und Höhen sind gut ausgewogen. Die Saitenlage ist nun nach einer kleinen Halseinstellung
perfekt. Nachdem ich mich an den dickeren Gitarrenhals gewöhnt habe, spiele ich sehr gerne mit dieser , und meine Bandkollegen haben
beim letzten Auftritt nur lobende Worte für diese Gitarre gehabt.
Für eine Bühnen-Konzertgitarre ( rückkopplungsfrei - handlich-
mit Piezosystem- ohne Batterie zu betreiben-Klanglich souverän) ist
diese Gitarre meiner Meinung nach in diesem Preissegment unschlagbar.

Wie oben gesagt: Ich bin sehr zufrieden
