Harley Benton has added yet another model to its ever-growing range of budget acoustic guitars.

The company's new CLD-60SMCE NT dreadnought – which was proceeded just a couple of weeks ago by the similar CL-15M Solid Wood acoustic range – features a sapele mahogany top, sides, back and neck, with a roseacer fretboard boasting 20 vintage-style frets with dot inlays.

Build-wise, the acoustic features dovetail construction with scalloped x-bracing, and a dual-action truss rod.

The dreadnought also sports an HB-03 preamp with an integrated tuner, and die-cast tuning machines.

The Harley Benton CLD-60SMCE NT acoustic guitar is available now – in a natural finish – for the phenomenally low price of $127.
