18.01.2017
Having been a guitarist (6 String) for about 30 years i decided to dabble into bass for a new challenge. i own a few basses, mostly i prefer short scale because it just suits what i am used to. have owned a few long scale Ps and Js but never got on with them due to finding them difficult . having taken one last gamble on a longscale i decided to choose this guitar (mainly due to price and looks). here are the findings after receiving , unboxing and playing the bass.
1. the instrument arrived before i even expected it , and it would have been less protected if it was wrapped in lead (ok slightly over egged , but it was wrapped very very well !)in a box within a box with loads of bubble wrap and polystyrene to keep it safe.
2. oh god its pretty ! its absolutely faultless as far as looks go. not a blemish, mark or defect.
3. set up is acceptable. i use the word acceptable because we all have different tastes and playing styles , so having a guitar to your liking is only possible if you have a guitar built or set up to your particular specifications or you are extremely lucky and find one that was made with your name on it from the start. My particular preference was a lower action, half a turn with the supplied allen key on the bridge saddles got me the desired action with no buzzing.
4. the sound is far beyond its price. plugged it in to my HB CBX110 amp and after adjusting the settings that i use on my eb0 bass a bit, it sounded fantastic ! warm and defined lows right through to clear but still punchy highs.
5. The neck. it comes fitted as standard with a special magic neck ! every time i look at it i see a long scale neck , but when i look away and start playing it magically seems to transform in to a nice low and easy short scale neck ! I cant even remember playing a guitar this naturally easy ever ! my fingers just seem to know the fretboard without trying.
so in short its very very good . will not tell you that its worth 5, 10 15 times more than its price , or sounds as good as a ?? because im not that experienced in bass to give an informed opinion on stuff like that. but if you are looking for a new purchase i will urge you to part with a small sum of money for a unbeleivably well made bit of kit. well done thomman !

PB 50 SB Vintage Series Bass Guitar

Raymond588, 25.03.2014
I used to play in a 1960s rock band and always used Fender guitars especially the STING version of the Fender Precision 1952 bass to get that 1950s and 1960s sound. After getting a bit long in the tooth and a bad back and hips to carry on gigging, I retired about 4 years ago, but I soon discovered that I missed playing bass, and as I stupidly sold all my bass guitars and amps, had to find something cheaper to fix my addiction, so to speak. I looked at all the cheap copies of the old Fenders but could not find anything to come up with the feel and sound. Then after buying a banjo from Thomann I realized the quality of the Harley Benton instruments and could not believe the price of the Harley Benton PB 50 SB Vintage Series. (even though the name is a bit of a mouthful). So I had to have one as it looked so good in the photographs on their website. When it arrived after only 4 days from Germany to the UK, as soon as I unpacked it I realised I was on to a winner. The set up was spot on with the straightest neck you could find. With no adjustment it had an action of 3.5mm. With just a slight adjustment I got it down to 3mm without any rattles. The only thing I had to do was to swap the round wound strings that were fitted for my favourite Fender flat wounds and I was really rocking. If anyone is worried about the cheap price of the bass then don't be as the quality is worth a bass double this price. Go on treat yourselves. You won't be sorry. Also the tone control is a dream as it can adjust the bass from a deep 60s sound to a slapping 80s sound without any adjustment from the amp.
