value for money, poor strings, poor quality of the wood of the neck.
Anto Bar, 24.12.2017
I was looking for a p-passive 5 strings bass and I got this one. First of all, the strings are some China-clone D'addario-strings, to be changed immediately with something more serious.

The neck is D-Shape, comfortable at playing, but the wood of which the neck is made is 2nd choice material, full of wooden knots and not regular as it should be for a mid-high level of instrument of the Harley Benton line (the most expensive 5 strings HB bass costs 330 euros).

The bolt of the jack plug was too much tightened, so it ruined the area around it.
The pick-ups are silent, and this is a good new: no hum or noise. Anyway they needed an accurate setup, because they came with the screws all lifted up. For an instrument of about 200 euros something more accurate could be expected, even if not the top of the factory adjustment.

The sound is quite good, but only after having changed the strings (35 euros), having redone the setup, and having adjusted the distance of the pickups from the strings. I would have liked more care in the setup before the delivery.

killer five string
Djangolino, 01.08.2019
I have been playing since late 80's, had lots of gear, had five string yamaha, couple of Squiers and have tried the bunch of expensive stuff. Out of the box everything perfect , bass looks nust gordous with olimpic white and tortoise pickguard. Setup, intonation, everything flawless. Neck is comfy and with satin finish, straight as an arrow , matching headstock (nice touch) with decent tuning pegs, frets are big and fretwork just perfect, like on much expencier guitars, the fingerboard is the best thing, since it is a maple that has been torched so it is very punchy and clear, great for slap. Roswell pickups are nice sounding with classic p+j winner combination. You can dial any sound you like, in a second. This bass is far beyound my expectations for this price, everything is simply flawless! Thank you Thomann !!!
