Probably my favorite bass
matt-drummer, 14.04.2018
I actually have three of these, this one, a natural and a sunburst.

I could not decided which one I liked best so I bought a natural version, it was so nice I bought the other two.

I love black guitars generally and this one looks amazing, it's perfectly finished and looks just how a jazz bass should look in my opinion.

I cannot find fault with this guitar in terms of finish and build quality it is flawless as are my other two, it does not look like a cheap guitar.

The most important parts are how it sounds and plays. Mine is set up very well from the factory and is lovely to play. It sounds great, the pick ups are of good quality and the strings are D'Addario roundwounds. I may try some flats on it later but right now I could not be happier.

If you are looking for a jazz bass, or even just a nice bass, then I recommend that you give one of these a try, you will save yourself a lot of money and even if you bought a much more expensive guitar than this I think it would be difficult to notice and significant gains.

Excellent, extremely VFM instrument.
14.12.2015
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!
