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.

Extremely hard to fault

Madjon, 22.08.2017
I've been playing nearly 30 years, in the last 5 years i've dabbled with a 6 string ibanez and hated it, a yamaha 5 string and hated it but have always wanted a 5 string to play those few tracks requiring a low d or below without having to detune a 4. This was a last hope and having also purchased earlier in the year a harley jazz bass, which is outstanding, thought i'd give this a go.

Its astounding, playability, set up, tone, action low, no buzz at all.

Its tone with both pups up is a little musicman esq, the jazz pup is nice and honkey as it should be and the p nice and fat, tonally really very good.

Finish is really beautiful with perhaps the vintage aging of the neck being a slight tacky let down but thats really being very picky.

Gigged within 3 days, bandmates loved it, tone superb, 3 hours played no complaints.

I could not find anything else in this price that seemed to fit the bill 5 strings, classic looks, basic simple, decent wood and the gamble paid off.

The only other point is the weight, i thought they'd forgot to pack it, its so light compared to my other 4's and previous 5 & 6. Awesome!

I would opt for this over pricier basses, stuff named brands, this is just good honest playabilty and tone, really well done thomann, only dilemma now is do i sell my £1000 instruments.
