Harley Benton JB-20 SB Standard Series

Electric Bass

The MB22 is a jazz-style bass that also has the typical features of the classic. Growling bass notes from the single coil neck pickup blend in wonderfully with the middle tones from the bridge pickup - and the high tones come out well too.

Amazing value

19.10.2016
First I must say that I am a guitar player and I got this bass only for recording purposes, since none of the plugins did the job for me. Thomann team sent me this really nice instrument which performs above all expectations. It looks and plays beautifully, and sounds great plugged in my audio interface. The action is excellent, strings are really good, it stays in tune and has great intonation, the finish is flawless... I have to admit, I cannot tell the difference between 3 times more expensive Squier or even a Mexican and this. I have played several Fender basses, Cort and similar, and this one stands shoulder to shoulder to most. I was also very sceptical because of the 100¤ price, but trust me - you can gig and record with this instrument - what else do you need? :)

If there was Fender or any other famous logo on the headstock I am 100% positive that many would not be able to tell the any major difference - I couldn't. I have been playing guitar for almost 15 years, and I have never encountered such value for money and expertise such as this in Thomann. Actually, I am quite sure that I will buy some more Harley Benton instruments in the future. They got my trust to that extent that I am more comfortable with ordering an instrument online than going to a local music store. And the warranty is 2 years longer. Great job Thomann team.

It's the best bass for this price

GuitarPlayerFromMinsk, 31.05.2018
I needed the cheapest bass guitar for my rehearsal studio, just in case if someone forgot instrument of broke the string. So I have tried this bass and it's just a blast for 99 Euro! Sound is quite OK, it's playable, and looks like fender )) What else do you want from 99 Euro bass? Even the cheapest Squire used on Ebay is more expensive. But the sound and quality is the same. So took it if you are OK with the label, and don't de affraid if it would be broken one day (but my bass is still running and running good!)
