    I've been needing a new acoustic for a couple of months now. The high E string snaps whenever you get it past B when tuning it. I think there must be something sharp in the bridge or something.

    Anyway, I ordered this cheapo electro-acoustic the other night.

    It is just for mucking around on but I've read and watched some really good reviews about Harley Benton guitars regarding relative quality for the price. Harley Benton is basically the own-brand of the German music retailer Thomann.
    Never tried their accoustics before but I've had a couple of their T-style electrics in the past. Good starter guitars or make a good basis for a project.

    Is that a full size ? I bought a chord (or more to the point my Wife did) it was more a travel acoustic when I really wanted a full size. A guitarist colleague says go for a wider neck (knut) which the Chord wasnt & subsequently I struggled a bit with chord changes as my chubby fingers kept hitting the other strings. That aside I really enjoyed learning the acoustic after giving up on my bass, keep us posted in how your new guitar sounds & feels 👍
