We can do both: rock and classic
Rock and classic are not opposites with the Harley Benton HBO-850 Classic Blue. It has its genes from the most traditional stage acoustics, but the nylon strings come from the classic scene. And the design with the body shell is already known from medieval lutes. A more flexible sound is hard to imagine, as you can add brilliance with the built-in pickup system as you wish. The flat body not only provides an unmatched comfort when playing, it also prevents any droning from the amplifier in the first place.
Core competence stage
The Harley Benton HBO-850 Classic Blue is first and foremost an electro-acoustic stage guitar. The spruce top is blocked and thus suppresses unwanted feedback. A modern X-bracing ensures a tidy, open sound image. The body shell is made of ABS. Due to the semicircular shape, there are different reflections inside than with a traditional body. This has a decisive influence on the special sound. This can then be optimally amplified with the active pick-up system used. Unmistakable is the unmistakable look, which with its decentralized sound holes and the blue finish identifies the HBO-850 Classic Blue as a modern stage guitar at first glance.
Nylonsound in modern
The Harley Benton HBO-850 Classic Blue is aimed specifically at friends of the typical nylon string sound, who would like to use it in a modern environment. The flat body is not only extremely ergonomic, but also allows carefree reinforcement up to the highest levels, especially in cooperation with the closed ceiling. With its width of 48 millimeters, the neck is significantly slimmer than the typical classic neck. And finally, the look is anything but traditional. This is the right thing for bossa guitarists, jazz shredders, folk bards, ballad rockers - and for brave classics.

You can always get louder
By no means all acoustic pieces in the folk area, not even those in the rock area, rely on steel strings. Willie Nelson, Paco de Lucia or Sting - these are all musicians who repeatedly or exclusively use nylon strings. The HBO-850 Classic Blue is an instrument that wants to be used precisely here. Namely, where it is mainly non-classic, but still has to sound like nylon strings. As a rule, they should be reinforced with the flat body. You should also use a belt. Not only is it the most comfortable, it looks the best too.
