HT-250/S.BRS

An Orchestra model which goes beyond the 12th fret and it’s price! 

When it comes to price/value ratio , no one can overlook Crafter’s great guitars. The Korean company which began it’s way in the 70’s is a major player in today’s mid level range guitars.
One of the best examples for that statement is the Crafter HT-250 guitar. We could not stop asking ourselves “does it really only cost around 200€? really?”.

The HT-250 is a simple Engelmann spruce top and mahogany body, orchestra size guitar. It has all you need in a beginners or a couch guitar and much more. What more? more sound.
If we need to choose one character that a beginner’s guitar must have, it is definitely good playability. Without being playable, a guitar can only harm the novice guitar player as playing an unplayable guitar can be frustrating. The Crafter HT-250 has got that covered big time. it is soooo comfortable to play it becomes difficult to put it aside. In addition it also sounds pretty good and the intonation is neat as well.

On the Crafter HT-250/S.BRS we got for demos, the looks was great too, we liked the satin sunburst finish very much.
