Great bass for the money
Lado, 12.08.2017
I've had this bass for a couple of weeks now and have played it about a couple of hours a day.
I've played guitar since1989 but its my first time getting a bass.
I didn't want to spend to much money and ended up with this sunburst JB-75.
I bought it cause I liked the looks.

PACKAGING:
When it came it was solidly packed in two boxes and as far as I could tell it was set up.
No damage on the bass at all.

LOOKS:
It had a great finish and the pickguard didn't bother me as many have complained about.
In my opinion it looked nice, darker and better than on the picture.
I had ordered a black pickguard as well and changed it after a week or so.
I may change it back at some point just for the variation.
The body is mad of three or fouor pieces of wood as far I can tell.

MECHANICS ANDINTONATION:
The bass stays in tune - the intonation is about 6-8 cents of on the E and G string at the 12 fret though...
But i've seen a lot worse.
I've adjusted it at the bridge and might do it a bit more.

FRETS/NECK:
My greatest concern was ratling/buzzing frets and sharp edges on the frets.
But... No ratling on the frets at all!
The strings have a medium action to them.
Not really super close but not to far from the fret either.
I would wish though that the strings were a bit closer to the fret at the 17'th - but again they might buzz so I'll leave them for now.
No sharp edges either on the frets.

PICKUPS:
I'm not that used to analyzing bass sound so I wont get to much into that.
The pickups are NOT WILKINSON but ROSWELL.
Thomann have changed pickup supplier.
If that is good or bad i do not know - but theres nothing to do about it is there.
I mostly use the neck pickup cause I like the fatter sound.
It sounds actually better then the sound bitts you can hear on the webpage here.
The PU have sharp edges. So resting your thumb on them doesn't feel that nice.
I took care of it with a bit of sandpaper grinding the edges a bit making them smooth.

WEIGHT:
The bass weighs about 5 kg but it isn't a problem... I see alot of other instruments also weighing that much and even more.
Unless you have serious back problems it shouldn't be a problem.

PROS:
- price
- stays in tune
- basically playable out of the box
- feels sturdy and good
- looks good

CONS:
- intonation "issues" on the E and G string at the 12th
- Brand image (doesn't have the same ring to it as a Fe.... obviously)
- I don't like the headstock design

CONCLUSION:
For the money it's an AWASOME BASS I must say!
It fully lives up to my expectations and some more.
I have to pull my self together not to order a P-bass from HB at this moment as well!

Chears.

Good price-quality comparison
George Waters, 08.09.2017
Having used fretless basses for such a long time and saving up money for a nice J-bass from fender, I bought this bass just to keep myself "in shape". It's not the best bass I've ever tried, but for the small money that it costs I'm very satisfied. The sound is nice, with a closer look you can clearly see that it's a cheap bass from it's poor aestethic, but i couldn't have asked more for this price. It also came along with a brand new set of strings. I'd highly recommend it to any starter

Best bass for it's price!
Young-Bin, 23.04.2016
First of all, I was blown away by the quality of this instrument. I heard very good reviews about it before but I was still a bit skeptical...BUT it was JUST as I had heard it would be.

The hardware on this is really worth much more than how much I payed for it. Wilkinson pickups and bridge?? wow.
Great quality stuff there.

The looks on this bass...well you be the judge of that. Doesn't it look great??
- 70s style block pearloid inlays (you won't find this kind of look for this kind of money)
- lovely 3 tone sunburst on a quality American ash
- Harley Benton(thomann) really killed in the looks department on this one, in a good way ofcourse.

It sounds great! I did an AB with a Fender Mexican Jazz Bass and I personally thought this was on par if not better than the Fender!! unbelievable! There is also a good response with the blend knobs.

I had this for about 1 and a half weeks and I couldn't really find much fault in the build of the bass. The frets are nicely trimmed on the sides so it doesn't hurt your hands, and it came setup very well! All I had to do was maybe adjust the saddles to intonate it a little bit but even that was very small. It also seems to be very durable so it should be fine when going on stage as well as on the road.

The only 2 cons I found about this instrument was the pickguard and the weight.

The pickguard doesn't really look like a genuine turtoise shell pickguard up close. Looks a bit "cheap" but that's nothing you can't fix by changing it.

The heavy weight can be both a pro and a con.
It's heavy because it's made of American ash body and that actually contributes to the resonance of the bass as there is more material and mass BUT for a guy like me who isn't "bulky", this might be a problem as it's too heavy to play long hours on stage.
SO my fix on this was buying a good quality strap.
I got a Mono Cases "The Betty Strap" which is doing a miracle work for me. It balances out the weight of the bass and has paddings to relieve the stress on my shoulders. So get a nice strap! I recommend the Betty Strap.

All in all, Great instrument! Great Price! Great Service!
Kudos to you Thomann!!

Unbelievable value, great sound, fantastic bass!
Jake Jacobowitz, 08.12.2019
What a glorious bass. I'll say it again . . . what everyone else has been saying . . . I seriously cannot believe I got this great sounding of a bass for $138 dollars. I have played for 30+ years. I played professionally for several years, and have some mid-to-high dollar basses. I have not played an “inexpensive” bass in years. Maybe decades. And I’ve NEVER bought a bass this cheap in my life. But what a surprise this bass has turned out to be. It's fantastic. I’ve wanted a bass with this blocked/bound rosewood board look for a long time. And it scratches that itch on the cheap.

The HB is surprisingly comfortable to play. The neck is straight and smooth, the body is solid, paint and finish look great. The satin neck is fantastic and easy to slide around on. I took it down one star because the fretwork is a little lacking. But I would by no means complain about that at this price point. I’ve played worse. I love the blocks and binding. The neck is a bit thicker (front to back) than the jazz neck on my Lakland, which I like. I need a little more meat for my big garden rake-sized hands to hold on to, and the HB fits the bill. It is a little heavy, but not as shockingly heavy as I expected it to be based on many reviews and comments I’ve read. I don’t have a scale to confirm this, but just holding one bass in each arm, it feels a little heavier than my Lakland 5-string jazz, but not overwhelmingly so. It plays great sitting down. Maybe just a liiiitle neck dive. Some lightweight tuners might change that. But it’s not enough for me to worry about.

The pickups pack a ton of punch and warmth. When I first got it, the bridge pickup was way higher than the neck pickup, and it sounded thin and weak. Once I evened out the pickups, it sounded warm and full. Interestingly enough, so far they're dead quiet. I live in an old house with ungrounded wiring where I practice, so everything buzzes. Passive/active/split/single coil. It doesn't matter. But the HB buzzes less than my Lakland. And the single coil Roswell pickups don't have the same 60-cycle hum I was getting out of the Lakland pickups. It's fascinating. When I solo one of the pickups on my Lakland, even just a little, I get some hum. It's to be expected from single coil pickups and is part of their inherent tone and charm. But when I solo one of the Roswell pickups, even all of the way, I get no hum at all. Maybe they're wired to somehow defeat the hum. I don't know. The only negative tone-wise is that I do find the bass to be a very “clanky” with the pickups and tone knob on full. Way too much high end coming through. I have to roll the tone knob down quite a bit to calm the clank, but once I get it dialed in, it's perfection. And it makes my Tech 21 YYZ pedal absolutely sing. Of course, it's no Lull. That would be silly. But it will likely kick my Lakland (a bass that costs about 10x as much new) off the top jazz spot in my arsenal. I am thrilled with the purchase.

My only other complaint is not about the bass itself, but the shipping process. I do intend to let Thomann know that the box was completely destroyed in places when the bass/case arrived. The bass did not escape unscathed. But there was surprisingly little damage compared to the utter destruction of the box. Just a chunk taken out of the top of the headstock. Not enough to return the bass for, but certainly enough to be frustrated by. Especially given the number of complaints I’ve read online about their basses being damaged by overseas shipping to the US. They have GOT to start packing them better. It will save them money on returns. The bass had poked through both the top (by the top of the headstock) and bottom (by the strap pin) of the box, damaging the top of the bass. There was little to no padding inside, despite being double-boxed. I decided when I ordered it that if I liked this bass, I was going to order another, but I don’t think I will now, because I don’t want to risk it. If you’re local, or at least on the same continent, it would be far less of a concern.
