Great little Instrument!
Reviewing purchased item 07.07.2021
A real winner for € 49,00 and it comes with a bag!

Note that size does matter in this case, and a lot.
You have quite a lower tuning so you will have to maybe adjust it a bit based on your playing.
Will have to squeeze your fingers more tightly on the fret board.
Everything is there but at a smaller scale

Good or bad…….?
I think it is magnificent since I can train on those finger stretching cords at ease and get finger position memory for when the big guns come into place and I plug either full size guitar to an amp. But foremost......this thing is really fun!

Also purchased the Pyramid classic guitar 7strings to have the closest to regular tuning and hopefully a bit more biting tone. One of the strings is not needed so I will just use 6 of them. Will review once I actually change them since it sounds so nice already out of the box.

This instrument does not substitute a full guitar but it is the closest based on its size.
A real tiny guitar that will help with your more immediate playing needs. Whilst traveling, office guitar, friends and family gatherings of all kind, and of course the perfect instrument to have lying around for a quick riff.

Again I want to mention this is a € 49,00 item, yes it is also small and you do really get your money’s full worth, though you should also be aware it will not sound like a Gibson Songwriter, but it will get you as close as € 49 worth of the typical Thomann/Harley Benton Know-how, great standards and the tiny guitar body resonance can.

Out of the box requirement is but to tune a bit, admire the wood and enjoy this Guitarlele…..
Some parts are of course always possible to improve but that is up to each and everyone’s needs, possibilities, and playing style. Changing strings is always good, adjusting or carving maybe the bridge guard a tiny bit might be needed depending on your action and playing style.

As final consideration on the more artistic side, amazing DIY project options with opportunity to re-paint or stain, strip it bare, sandpaper ultra fine, and re stain, paint or cloth-epoxy it, and let your favorite bursts and designs out. On the cutest of tiny guitars that also sounds great!

This will be a great extra added value for my already excellent product soon with the most personal of touches.
Will eventually order another one to stain but let's get this one's face and soul out....then we buy more!

Good. With some quick fixes, great!
clevername 30.08.2021
I am pleased with GL-2NT, overall. For the price, I cannot complain. The instrument is well-built and looks nice in its plainness.

I intend to keep it in 'A' tuning. I understand many reviewers have purchased the GL-2NT as a travel guitar, but I cannot imagine it sounds nice in standard E tuning. The thing isn't built for it. Regardless, it is well worth the money, and is fun to play.

I had some minors qualms, however. The initial strings included were of poor quality, particularly the trebles (no sustain). Also, the action was too high, resulting in problems with the instruments intonation. I removed about 1.5mm-2mm from the saddle and voila; problem solved. 5 minutes of work to turn an OK purchase into a good one. I plan to replace the saddle and nut with higher-quality pieces and swap the strings. This isn't necessary. This guitalele is mostly fine out-of-the-box, but - as is the case with many budget instruments - it is easy to get even more out of your money. Thanks, Thomann!

Fun and durable!
Uncle Jaff 17.10.2021
Bought this for work (kindergarden) thinking it was fun to play and it looked neat, but this little sucker plays very well and is very durable.
Chose this one because the fretboard was wider than the others, considering my massive hands. Very welcome at parties.

It has taken a couple of hits and it still tunes up and plays at it should.
Feels sturdy, and the sound is great.
Should mention that tuning it feels weird at first, but its a scaled down guitar. Fine tuning it will require this smallest of turns.

Very worthy budget instrument
T. Escobedo 04.07.2020
This is the second Harley Benton GL-2NT I have purchased. I have been very satisfied with both. They're nicely made, attractively finished, budget tiny guitars. Laminated construction featuring minimal adornment is handsome in its simplicity. The only adjustment necessary was to file down approximately 2mm from the plastic saddle to bring action down to a more optimal level. Being very light and small, it still has decent volume and a lively tonal quality.

Being a very small instrument, with a very short scale, it might be tight for players with large hands to manipulate a full six strings. However, the 48mm neck width and string spacing are wider than many comparable 1/8 and 1/4 scale classical guitars, which are more cramped, presumably to accommodate children's hands. The Harley Benton's wider spacing helps adult hands more easily navigate the short scale length.

Though intended to be tuned ADGCEA using common classical guitar strings, I found it can be successfully tuned EADGBE using the inexpensive Pyramid 7String Classical Guitar Set (No. 344 200) sold here, discarding the high E and using the remaining set tuned standard. Doing this makes for a heavier, higher tension set that intonates and projects reasonably. This makes for a *very* portable travel guitar rather than "guitarlele". If that's what you desire, I can highly recommend this instrument.
