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.

Exceptional for the Price

The first point to note is that these basses vary considerably in quality. The first one I received sounded great, looked great, but the neck was so fret buzzy at even very high action it was almost unplayable. SO if you get one of these and it isn't up to the mark, use Thomann's great service and get another one!

So the second one of these I received really is an excellent instrument, well finished, no blemishes, tuners work great, no noise from the pots, set with a high action on delivery but got down to a reasonable level without buzz. However to get down the action I normally use on my more expensive basses I will need to dress the frets and also shim the neck as the bridge saddles don't drop low enough. This isn't a big deal for me for an otherwise quality bass so cheap.

This bass has a fantastic tone, the Wilkinson pickup really is very high quality and it'll do punk to blues to country really easy. It has a big fat neck! For me this is a good thing and no doubt it contributes a lot to its fat tone. Might be something to consider though if slim necks are your thing.

All and all this is outstanding value, but if you are beginner player without much experience of setting up basses, then get it set up professionally or get someone to check it over when you get it.
