This Harley Benton Custom Line N-150CE NT acoustic resonator offers a Mini Jumbo Sapele body with a cutaway design and a Mini Humbucker pickup. Could this be your excuse to try some new open tunings? Or to break out your slide?
Harley Benton Custom Line N-150CE NT
Harley Benton’s Custom Line N-150CE NT is a Mini Jumbo acoustic resonator model made with a Sapele body, which has a cutaway design for better upper fret access. The guitar features an Okoume U-shape neck, with a Purple Heart fretboard and 20 medium jumbo frets, plus a set of ABS dot inlays. It also has ABS body and neck binding which complement the aesthetic nicely.
This model incorporates the Rising P3004 Mini Humbucker neck pickup controlled by a simple volume and tone control layout. Allowing players to play either acoustically, or amplified, which makes it a versatile resonator for the price.
It uses a JM-02 Cone paired with a Spider JM-03 that has a maple bridge and comes with a set of DLX Die-Cast tuners. All the hardware is chrome and the Natural Matt finish for this model looks great.
Overall, it offers guitarists a lot of bang for the buck, and I’m guessing it will fingerpick and slide nicely with the standard D’Addario YB-EXP16 strings, though you may want to go heavier with the gauge for some open tunings.
It is super affordable and potentially a great entry into the world of acoustic resonator guitars. Especially, as it includes a pickup as standard, which makes it even more versatile. Just tune it to DADGAD and pretend you are Jimmy Page!
