Harley Benton P-Bass Copy.
Cian Mullane , 19.01.2020
I was more than pleasantly surprised by this bass. I bought it on a whim as I had loved their jazz bass copy which I bought second hand for practically nothing and gigged into the ground. For such inexpensive instruments Harley Benton seriously know how to produce a bass that is worth atleast 5 times what you pay for them. I have used their jazz bass copy for over 2 years and their P-bass copy since I received it a month ago and I have never had a singly problem with them despite gigging with them regularly and having them thrown under busses, planes and on the floor on occasion.

Pros:
Frets are all level and neck is smooth with no marks or dents
Tuning pegs are smooth and surprisingly strong and sturdy
The single P-bass pickup is hotter and much better than anticipated
Looks really cool too

Cons:
It's considerably lighter than my other basses and the wiring of the pots and pickup are fairly thin but they're easily replaceable so this isn't really much of a con.

Overall this is a fantastic inexpensive bass that it worth it's weight in gold, it's hard to find a reasonably priced lefty P Bass and this ticks all the boxes for me as a fantastic instrument, cheers!

Much better than expected
Florian Bosilcov, 22.05.2018
I've owned and played extensively this bass for more than 2 years now. I wanted to wait for some time to pass before doing the review, as my main concern was that the neck wood would be of low quality and bend/skew with time. It hasn't! The neck is still straight as an arrow and plays perfectly.
Sure, right out of the box you can see some imperfections, but only on the non-essential stuff, like scratch plate trimming imperfections, unequal length on the saddle screws etc. but really, who cares, given the low price? The important thing is that there are no compromises on the stuff that matters.
I gave it a 5 star rating on the sound, but I have ordered an original Fender pick-up with it and fitted it immediately, so really, hadn't had the chance to play it with the original one. However, there are plenty of YouTube videos of people playing this bass unaltered and it sounds pretty good. As many wise bassists have stated, "the tone is in your fingers" :)
If you're just starting out, or planning to experiment with the P bass sound, it's the perfect starting axe. Do the proper adjustments (intonation, string action, truss rod) and that's it! It'll sound and play as good as any P bass does!
