Almost perfect...

22.03.2017
Feel: This is a HEAVY bass (not a deal breaker at all). The neck feels very good, smooth and comfortable in shape, with unrestricted access all the way to the 24th fret, not a single dead note. The pickups' placements work for me. Personally, the string spacing and neck both could be a bit wider, but i'm around 1.96m (6'5") with fairly large hands and fingers and that's entirely subjective anyway. Zero neck dive; this bass balances like a dream. 10/10.

Electronics: 18v preamp = healthy signal with sufficient headroom. My onboard preamp knobs are completely different in terms of what they are supposed to control when compared to what i have seen from users on YouTube. Thomann themselves sent me an image numbering the knobs, which doesn't match what the knobs actually do (except the volume). There is a huge drop in output when the pickup selector is placed dead centre. A sliver to the bridge or the neck position though and the level kicks in big time. Faulty placement aside, the knobs do what they are supposed to and they do it well. Zero noise, very dynamic (specially the bass knob, its a beast), love the sound. 9/10

Build quality: Some of the isolated bridges are offset in that they are not perfectly parallel to each other. A couple of them are actually slightly off-contact with the body. That being said, they are not loose, so there's no loss of overall integrity. The knobs feel okay, but the tuners seem flimsy. All screws on this bass are plain bad, those heads will wear off pretty soon. The dual truss rods seem solid. The body is rock solid, as is the finish. 6/10.

Overall: Presuming that other basses don't have the problems that my piece has with the offset bridge system or the output drop when the pickup selector is centered, this would be a GOOD bass. Factor in the price point, and its just plain excellent. I have used it live a couple of times. Set everything flat (except the pickup selector) and i got a very usable tone right there. I tried opening the bass knob a smidgen; the whole stage started to rumble! That preamp is a powerhouse! There's enough power there and then some, and although i have yet to use this beast in the studio, i have no doubt that it will deliver. The preamp is VERY verstaile in terms of its tone shaping prospects. The features are great in general. At this price point, its just awesome! 9/10.

Special thanks to Thomann for, firstly, making Harley Benton products happen, secondly, making them available at these wallet-friendly prices and thirdly, having the best website in the business, coupled with top notch customer care.

Bargain 6-string.

Ben8786, 10.02.2015
To be honest the price tag might make you think this is a cheap quality bass. I bought this as a primary bass due to my old one deceasing and budget requirements :/ However, I can see myself happily using this as my primary until things improve financially.

It's a reassuring weight, shipping label says 3kg, it can get a bit heavy after a couple of hours standing. It feels "nice and comfortable" on, the neck length again comfortable, width of the neck and string spacing slightly more than I'm used to, again though nothing horrible. It plays nice and clearly, coming with D'addario's light? gauge, maybe the B string is a touch flappy for my taste, but that's minor and can be changed.
I ended up playing very happily for a couple of hours, so far as the neck goes (and seated) this is a pretty "fast" neck and has a good bouncy feel to play. Oh, tuning is also solid and excellent :)
I don't slap much, but it lent itself nicely to the little I do, some good poppy sounds. I tend to play bluesy/prog/rock and it's a great sound for that.

Day 2: Into studio and played through a so-so Ashdown 2x10 + 15. Absolute blinder, there's a 2x9volt active which I found unusual, but hell this packs a punch, no eq, straight out this sounds fantastic - I think with a slightly heavier gauge set on this it'd be fantastic, although straight out it's probably pretty cool for low-end metal too :) My band are all jaw-dropped at this.

The bass itself looks fantastic, thru-neck AND thru-body - again unusual, but there's killer sustain. Tuners are standard and solid, bridge perhaps feels a little light to me, but again that thru-body stringing is a really nice tough.
Overall, finish and build quality is excellent, if there's one place money is saved it's the "Ebonol" synthetic wood? fingerboard, which did leave some black "residue" like felt tip pen on my fingers, but I've played that off and it's ifne now. This is where the money has been saved and is the only disappointment to me. For the money though, this is worth twice what you could pay. Very pleased.
Some videos on youtube of this are worth checking out (not mine).
