Happy Harley

Cheep and cheerful sums up this guitar. Good pre amp and pick up with little background hum. The instrument is comfortable to play and the intonation and tuning are good. One or two flaws in the finish and the frets are unpolished which means you cannot bend strings without a scratching sound. The satin neck is slightly chunky but better that than so thin it warps. Machine heads are good quality and the nut well adjusted. As supplied the action is average, there is no battery for the pick up but it did come with a lead.

I fitted mine with ball end nylon strings and it sounds rather nice, jazzy rather than classical which is just what I wanted. The sound is reminiscent of the early Ovations as used by John Williams on his Sky albums.
