Quick summary: Use 10EUR for a new pickguard for this and adjust this properly: absolutely insane bang for that buck! Tools included!

If you want a cheap bass to start or to mess wildly with, you really should not be afraid about this Harley.
_____________________

First of all, I have to say that i'm glad I bought this. I bought this months ago and i still don't regret buying this.

For the price, body is finished really well. And the body isn't any basswood crap. American ash underneath that beautifull high-gloss finish looks just stunning and there isn't really anything that would reveal that it costs just barely over 100EUR. I just love the way this thing looks.

Sound is fairly good considering that original mics are cheap ones. (What could you expect with price tag like this?) It sounds a bit plastic and muddy. Atleast i'm fine with them since bass isn't my primary instrument I play with, but if you changed the mics with better ones, I can promise that this bass is going to sound awesome!

About quality: I needed to readjust intonation, string height & truss rod, but other than that, it was ready to roll. All tools to do those easy adjustments came with the bass and they performed well for their purpose.

All metal parts are firmly attached and do their work really well (That's rare for this price range.) Tuners feel surprisingly accurate and smooth, I have no intention or need to replace em! Bass keeps itself tuned really well, even with my "hammer that b****!" kind of approach. No need to tune after every jam session.

Pickguard though was made from some cheapo plastic and it was so soft that it turned looking ugly pretty fast. I replaced it with general JB replacement part (<10EUR) and wow; it looks more awesome than it was directly from the box!

(Later on, I had to tidy up some frets' sharp ends due Finlands widely changing temp and humidity, but that's something what happens on top-end guitars and basses too.)

Excellent, extremely VFM instrument.

This is the second Harley Benton bass I bought and I must say, it is a top tier instrument. Excellent bass, period. For its price, it's simply unbelievable and I would not hesitate to buy the whole Harley Benton line up, after this one!

So, first off, the build quality. I have looked over this one thoroughly and I simply could not find the smallest of faults on it. The paint is really good all over, no chips, hairs, runs, anything. Everything lines up correctly, the neck pocket is TIGHT, every single screw is just fine. There have been reports of less than optimal screws for the pickups but this was not the case on mine. Sturdy as can be and built perfectly. Five stars here!

Now, the sound. This bass has Wilkinson pickups (and hardware, more on that after). The sound is spot on! In a blind test, I doubt one could easily discern between this one and an American Fender. It's THAT good! I've used to it record direct and amped and I must say, it kicks serious ass in any situation. Rock, funk, pop, metal, the versatility of the Jazz Bass is nto lost in this one's price range! Simply excellent. Five stars here, as well!

One more thing here, though. The cables are cloth wrapped, the electronics EXTREMELY tidy and the pots are just excellent. No hissing, no scratching, nothing.

Now, the hardware on this bass is Wilkinson as well, and it is a huge plus. The tuners are nice and sturdy and, combined with the very well cut nut, the bass can hold the tuning after much abuse. The bridge is also sturdy and with enough mass. Everything is as it should be and doesn't really warrant a swap with anything pricier. Also, the bass came from Thomann set up PERFECTLY, which I did not expect. I only had to tune up and it was ready to play.
I should mention that the bass came strung with D'Addario strings. Excellent, and quite a pricey choice, considering the instrument's price!

Overall, it's five stars on every aspect. Just an honestly excellent instrument, well made, very nice sounding and a total sleeper. Plus, it's entertaining as hell to see people scratching their heads over how awesome such a low priced instrument is! I really hope Thomann adds more Benton basses in the future!

Crazy cheap, great player

I have owned a Fender Jazz bass for over 20 years but wanted one with a maple neck for brighter tones and bought the JB-75NA. I own a few Harley Benton basses so knew the build quality would be first rate and i wasn't disappointed. The neck is a little thicker than my Fender but its not at all chunky.

The Pros:
The ash body is absolutely gorgeous. Its a very very well matched two piece and i have trouble finding the join and the wood grain on the contours is beautiful. The tuning machines work well and are accurate enough to get the job done. The bridge has nice brass saddles and does its job well. The nut was cut perfectly and does its job well. Good fret work.

The Cons:
The pickups are quite low output and while they do sound quite good i may change them but im in no rush. The body cavity is not shielded and the pickups can buzz very slightly when near lights but will be easily sorted by copper shielding tape.

Conclusion:

Buy one you wont regret it. Its a lovely heavy hunk of a bass and sounds great, plays well and looks exceptional. If you are into tinkering or projects this would make the perfect base for any upgrades as the machining of the wood both neck and body is flawless and every bit as good as my Fender and the pups bridge and tuners are all easy to replace but the real benefit is that you dont have to ist great just outta the box.

Great value Bass

All the Basses I own, and the usual type I go for are modern, light, active basses and have never considered buying a Jazz bass.....until I saw this. I was drawn by the great colour combination of black with maple neck and the block inlays and thought for just over £100 there was very little to lose.

Ordering with Thomann was as always stress free and reliable, the bass arrived in around 9 days.

First impression were how lovely looking the bass is, flawless glossy black paintwork with chrome hardware (complemented on the bridge by brass saddles). I was also aware of how much larger and heavier this bass was than my modern offerings.

The bass was perfectly playable out of the box, however, I lowered the action slightly to accommodate my taste. The neck feels relatively slim and is smooth and straight.

The big surprise came when playing this bass through an amplifier. Although its not active, it is a very loud bass. The tonal range on the bass is very impressive, ranging from warm deep sounds to aggressive trebles and some excellent slap tones.

The build quality of this bass seems very good, frets are a little sharp, but if you can see beyond this and the name on the head-stock, you will find this to be an excellent sounding, feeling and looking bass at an excellent price.
