Harley Benton guitars have been making a bit of a splash over the past few years. The house brand of Thomann Music encompasses the full range of acoustic, acoustic-electric, bass, ukuleles, amps and effects. Unlike some house brands though, Harley Benton has been more and more standing on its merits as a brand in its own right.
I reviewed a Harley Benton CLA-15MCE acoustic guitar back in April 2018 and was so impressed with it that I concluded at the time that it must be one of the best budget acoustics out there. Obviously other competitors have arrived since then but I would still put it high up in the best under £200/$260 lists right now.
