Nice Bass

Matias M., 16.02.2015
Well constructed, feels good, not too heavy, the overall body shape looks/feels better when you hold the bass in your hands than on the product pics, it is comfortably slim. The neck is well constructed and thin too.

The plug region has a plate correctly installed (diamond shape), it looks/is much better than the plug shown in the product picture.

Sadly it keeps killing my batteries even when the active pot is off and the plug disconnected.

Also, the neck was warped a bit to the right (impossible to fix with the trussrod)

So this particular one has to go back to the store.

I would still recommend it to someone wanting an inexpensive bass for the studio given these problems aren't present in your unit.

UPDATE: Got the new one from the store, all seems to be fine with this one, thanks Thomann.

Excellent Value for Money

Eggos, 07.12.2017
Excellent budget bass. So many features for this price point. Low action, smooth skinny neck, and very comfortable to hold. My biggest gripe is the positioning of the humbuckers. Whatever way I play, the humbuckers tend to get in my way but that's more of a personal issue. They sound quite good. A lot of tonal possibilities, especially with the added active circuitry that requires a battery to operate but can be used in passive mode too. The bass I received was an off white cream colour, almost as if it's been naturally aged over time. It's got that vintage look you might find if you opened a guitar case in your uncles attic and found a guitar. I think the strings are Harley Benton's own brand and honestly, they sound great out of the box with that lovely brand new steel string sound that I love but their longevity is compromised as that lovely sound dissipated very quickly and became dull sounding, which might be down your alley but I prefer a brighter sound. All electronics work fine, and the bass didn't need a set up right out of the box. Fretwork seems good, no visible blemishes which is pretty amazing at this price range. Came well packaged and delivery was quick, with tracking provided.

A+ Thomann and Harley Benton!
