Caveat first: I'm not a particularly experienced bassist so seasoned players might find more niggles, but then this at this price point you'd be silly to expect something utterly flawless.

This is of course a clone of the classic "Jaco" jazz bass, but without the current vogue for a paint job to mimic the wear and dents.

The finish is beautiful. On very close inspection I can see the lacquer overran going into the slots for the pickups but really, this complaining about this would be nit-picking of the highest order.

From what I understand, Harley Benton's range is built in China and probably branded for all sorts of companies. What you are getting with Harley Benton is not a custom built instrument, but one that Thomann's techs quality check and set up before sending out. In principle this means they act as a filter on the usual problem of variation in mass-produced, untested, no-name imports.

I put a set of Fender 9050L flatwound strings on mine and that completes the package for me, but the roundwound strings it came with seemed good quality (I forget which brand but they were a known name). It has Wilkinson pickups, which means little to me but again, it's a step up from "whichever pickups we got cheap that day".

I've found no obvious dead spots on the neck and my only moment where I wondered about the quality was when I was restringing it and one of the tuners felt slightly uneven. That said, the tuners on my Precision feel similar so perhaps that's just how that style of tuner feels. In any case, it's been holding its tuning nicely.

All in all, this feels like a really good value for money instrument. No, it's not going to compete with instruments ten times its price, but it's a very usable bass and so far has been a pleasure to play. Top marks.

Awesome for its price!

This guitar feels great, looks great, and sounds great, much better than most basses in this price rang + its fretlees neck is so fun & comfortable to play.

I ordered it about month ago from Thomann (Germany) to Croatia, it came within 2 weeks to my doorstep - it was fully setuped, and in tune, every string!

Thanks to Thomann for excellent service, keep up the good work!
