A lefty short scale bass for the people
WilliamTelecaster, 29.12.2015
What is so good about these low cost Harley Benton B&W lefty guitars is that fresh out of the box with a minimal setup, they make for a great first instrument. All the hardware and electronics are fit for purpose and fully durable. What really shines is the sheer quality of the necks - fine grained wood and excellent fretwork. As a newcomer to playing bass, I had decided beforehand that my HB PB-20 Shorty was to be converted into a keeper I could bond with. I fitted brass saddles and a custom made brass top nut, good quality flat wound strings and a set of top quality pickups. After a proper setup, I now have a wonderful sounding precision bass style guitar that is a pleasure to play. Either way, it was a bargain out the box, and a bargain after my upgrade. I would have to pay a lot more money for an instrument in anyway better than what I now have. I would recommend the HB PB-20 Shorty bass to anyone - regardless of their ability or musical intentions.
