Another result from Harley Benton!

I'd been contemplating picking up a bass for a while, but left handed options are limited, especially at the budget price end. Having already purchased a stunning CST-24 I knew they could put out a quality instrument, so I took a gamble on this JB-20 ... and I haven?t been disappointed.

There?s one tiny flaw on the instrument in that the neck is not properly aligned, with the G string much closer to the edge of the fretboard than the E. However, whilst its visible it doesn?t affect playability at all.

Other than that, the bass is solidly put together, holds tuning well, and sounds (to my ignorant ears!) pretty damn good. The finish is flawless on my example and everything hold together very well.

In all, a crazy amount of instrument for a crazy price!

Heading says it all. I took a punt on this. I have a Fender Jazz bass (keep for best) and a Harley Benton JB-75 already and just fancied a "cheap" Jazz bass to de-fret. However, when it arrived I was pleasantly surprised by the build quality. Nice woods used, not as heavy as the JB-75. After a swap of strings, bridge adjustment and a tweak with the truss rod to slightly straighten the neck, it plays extraordinarily well.now, I don't think I'll bother to remove the frets now, and am also considering selling the JB-75... it's just too heavy. This (at least mine) bass is a little belter. RECOMMENDED.
