Top Quality Electro Acoustic

Many years ago I owned an Applause Acoustic, which was Ovations economy brand but not inexpensive costing four times as much as this HBO-850. Was the Applause four times better...not a chance, in fact it is my opinion that the HBO-850 is at least twice as good as the Applause.

For the money this guitar cost I was hoping for something that looked ok ,was tunable and playable. Harey Benton and Thomann have done it again, this guitar is so much more, totally playable out of the box, good action, stays in tune and really playable. Dont know how they do it for the price but I'm glad they do.

Pros

Build Quality

Playability

Looks

Cons

Only the fact it doesn't have a 'mainstream' name on the headstock.

Give one a go for this money I don't think you can go wrong
