Harley Benton releases their first Gran Concert shaped electro acoustic models for their custom line. The CLC-650SM-CE BK and CLC-650SM-CE VS looking like a real bang for your buck for the specs they offer.
For just €463 you'll be getting a solid 'A-grade' African mahogany top, back and sides, Okoume c-shape neck, scalloped X-bracing and a body arm rest similar to some high end Taylors.
It features a composite wood fingerboard, wood neck and binding, WSC DLX closed gear tuners and Fishman's Flex Plus-t preamp system with integrated tuner. The guitar is available in two high gloss finishes; hi-gloss Black or Vintage Sunburst tops.
Thomann is constantly improving their in-house instruments brand and they seem to push it with their features, giving a lot of specs for a lot less than the big names. They have come a long way in the past few years, and these days they can be considered as a seriously competing brand in the asian made instrument market, next to giants like Squier and Ibanez.
