Absolutely insane bang for that buck!

itsHP, 08.12.2013
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.)

Crazy cheap, great player

01.11.2016
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.
