Przyzwoity bas za niewielka cene

24.10.2016
- Bas kupilem jako rezerwowy i z ciekawosci jak sie gra na fretlessie.
- calkiem sensownie wykonany lutniczo.
- nie podoba mi sie plaska podstrunnica, ale za ta cene moze byc.
- poprawnie wyregulowany, trzyma stroj, struny w miare nisko.
- brzmienie "unplugged" jak na te klase cenowa dobre, elektroniki nie testowalem.
- Jako pierwszy fretless do cwiczen w domu serdecznie polecam.

More pleased with its solid body sibling.

cutedaddy, 26.07.2017
Summary:
This is a full-featured but not optimally well-produced guitar. Bought another Harley Benton product at Thomann about half a year ago, which was amazing value for the price. This is OK, but not amazing. At the pricepoint it is though, i would still say it's acceptable as an acoustic-only instrument, with some minor issues.

Review:
After having a very good experience with the HB five string fretless electric bass 550 (solid body), i thought it worth a try to see how good HB's acoustic basses are. I would generally use it for acoustic playing, and for amplified only occasionally.

The specimen i received is generally a lot poorer in quality than the aforementioned electric 550. This may be due to the fact an acoustic guitar is quite a bit more complex to produce and assemble than a solidbody. Perhaps expecting a good acoustic at this price level is just asking for too much? I'll be looking for an acoustic that's one or two steps up in the spectrum myself.

1.
Keep in mind you're buying a guitar at barely the cost of two sets of high quality strings. When buying guitars in this price range, always be prepared to substitute standard issued strings immediately. The strings on this acoustic were awful, sounded horrible and tinny, were noisy all around, and the D broke at the head the very first moment i touched it.

2.
The standard issued strings are roundwound, which is guaranteed to ruin your (fretless) fingerboard in no time, unless it's made of high grade ebony (this one isn't). So my advice to all fretless players with anything less than an ebony board: always exchange for flatwounds immediately!

I got La Bella white nylon gold tapewounds, which are available in a low tension version at TalkBass.com, and hopefully at Thomann too, in the near future. (This acoustic has no truss rod, so low or extra low tension, L or X, are the way to go.) These are sure not to wear your board, more so because of the NYLON tape, and of course sound much better and feel fantastic.

3.
The laquer is sloppy around where the neck meets the body. Other than that, the finish looks fine.

4.
The moment i took the original roundwound strings off, the nut fell clean off. This needs 5min. and a little glue.

5.
The saddle is kept in place when strings are mounted, but comes off when they aren't. This enables tweaking of its height, which was in fact needed. After some playing i found a couple of positions where it was impossible to strike a clean tone, whatever your left or right hand technique. Lifting the saddle about 1,5mm completely solved this issue. Since you're bound to low tension strings anyway, this does not notably affect playability for the left hand.

6.
The electronic part will leave you wanting, this bass seems mainly fit for acoustic use. In whatever position i set the 4-band equalizer, only D and G strings are readily audible, the other three hardly.
There's a Volume and a Presence knob that work fine, but the volume of the D/G strings is easily double that of the other strings, so amplified playing is not really an option unless you subsstitute the pickup for a better balanced version.

The electronic part also features an on-board tuner, which i found to function well. It seems slightly off pitch, but if you need it in the first place, you're not likely to hear the difference.

PRO
-Nice looking, impressive wooden instrument
-Good for acoustic use
-Extremely cheap for an acoustic

CON
-Some minor assembly (for this specimen) and tweaking issues (for the design in general)
-Low B is a bit quiet (Not a quality issue, but a matter of the regular sized hollow body. Wanna hear the B? Get a huuuuuge or optimized body, $$$).
-Dots are a variable distance behind actual fret positions, up to 10mm going toward the nut. This renders the dots useless, which takes some getting used to.

Seeing as the next viable option to find a decent acoustic bass starts in the neighbourhood of ¤ 600,= to ¤ 700,= (in Europe; you're better off in the US), i could still recommend this guitar for occasional acoustic playing. Beginners beware: you have to find your left hand position by ear on account of the faulty position dots.
