Harley Benton JB-20 SB Standard Series

Electric Bass

The MB22 is a jazz-style bass that offers all the typical features of the classics. A growling bass from the neck's single coil mixes wonderfully with the mids of the bridge pickup and there's also no shortage of treble in the mix.

Amazing value
19.10.2016
First I must say that I am a guitar player and I got this bass only for recording purposes, since none of the plugins did the job for me. Thomann team sent me this really nice instrument which performs above all expectations. It looks and plays beautifully, and sounds great plugged in my audio interface. The action is excellent, strings are really good, it stays in tune and has great intonation, the finish is flawless... I have to admit, I cannot tell the difference between 3 times more expensive Squier or even a Mexican and this. I have played several Fender basses, Cort and similar, and this one stands shoulder to shoulder to most. I was also very sceptical because of the 100¤ price, but trust me - you can gig and record with this instrument - what else do you need? :)

If there was Fender or any other famous logo on the headstock I am 100% positive that many would not be able to tell the any major difference - I couldn't. I have been playing guitar for almost 15 years, and I have never encountered such value for money and expertise such as this in Thomann. Actually, I am quite sure that I will buy some more Harley Benton instruments in the future. They got my trust to that extent that I am more comfortable with ordering an instrument online than going to a local music store. And the warranty is 2 years longer. Great job Thomann team.

I've tried a couple of jazz basses in music shops (mostly squiers and fenders) before deciding if I wanna switch from a p-bass.
Since the instruments I've tried were more like intermediate to professional instruments, I wasn't expecting much for this money.

I was wrong. The bass that came looks, feels, plays amazing. It has a beautiful J-bass sound. I did it a quick setup to my taste and all I can say is that this is a totally gigable bass. The neck is slim, easy to play on, the fretwork is great too.

Definately worth the money. Awesome budget bass.
