Harley Benton is no stranger to the travel guitar market. In the last year alone, the company has unveiled the $74 ST-Travel guitar, as well as the feature-packed Airborne Go and TableAmp V2 desktop amps, and now it seeks to expand its travel-friendly offerings into the acoustic sphere.
Build-wise, each model features a solid Sitka spruce top with an ivory binding, mahogany back and sides, nyatoh neck with an ABS-bound laurel fingerboard and a laurel bridge.
Additional, both instruments sport a piezo pickup and Harley Benton-designed HB-03 preamp – which itself features an onboard EQ and tuner.
Spec differences include scale length, number of frets and hardware color – the parlor acoustic boasts a 24.72" scale, 19 frets and gold hardware, while the short-scale bass features a 23.5" scale, 20 frets and chrome hardware.
