Very good bass with some minor flaws.

Arild, 05.12.2017
Just got it out of the box , and have checked, adjusted and played for some hours. First I say : What a beauty ! And nice size of the body/neck: small comfortable body, slim abit flat rounded neck.(very playable). Mine had no flaws whatsoever . And laquer : Thick and shiny, the way I like it, and it makes the wood come out very nicely. Now there are some things that I might wanna "fix" later, but also not absolutely nesesary .
Since I ve played bass many years(also as a pro) Im picky about some things: I want the neck to be 100 % straight when you look down on it, this because I like to put the string height as low as possible with out getting fretbuzz. So this bass(as many others) I tighten the trussrod(the screw up on the neck) to straigthen the bow inwards. After done this the neck has a slightly S shape, wich can make the strings touch the frets on deep tones. (But it is very little! ) So I adjusted the height of the strings abit, then it is still very low action, and absolutely very easy low action. If one still want even lower action with a straight neck, its also possible to take fine sandpaper on frets low.(deep tones) . Then a thing HB might concider: and I ve seen this tendency on some other intruments from HB. The Sadle(right word? where the strings are attached on the body) could be abit closer to the picks and abit nearer the thickest strings. Because when adjusting intonation.( To get the same tuning on free string and 12 th fret ) the D and G string went all the way up/closest to the picks to get right intonation. Second : The G string is very close to the edge of the neck so it might some time slip over while playing. There is more space on the bass strings side. So I might move the sadle abit closer to the picks and more to the bass side. But other than this: totally satisfied. And it works very well allready. The 18 volt electronics gives a very sensitive power, eq is effective. Sound is tight and rounded thanks to the ebonol(?) fretboard. I think Im done with buying expencive basses. Plan is to make this one a fretless later, and get the BZ-6000 as my fretbass, and play them both with pride ! :-)

Compares very well to more expensive basses

Jools4001, 20.03.2016
My main bass is a fabulous, hand made 'boutique' bass from a very well respected UK luthier. If you were to order one today it would cost you around £3500.

I ordered the Harley Benton as a budget level back up bass simply because it looked good, had similar neck through construction to my main bass and I reckoned that as long as it was reasonably playable I could upgrade the pickups and electronics to bring it closer to the levels that I have become used to.

I don't have to bother, this bass is very, very impressive right out of the box.

Obviously, the woods chosen to make this bass are not quite up to the AAAAA grade of my main player, but they are very acceptable and the bass is very nicely made. There are just a couple of tiny spots of dust in the lacquer and one place where the glue line between the laminates has had about 1mm of filler applied. The phenolic fingerboard has a small patch that looks a bit more shiny than the rest, but my fingers will soon change that as I play it.

The neck is a good profile, not too thin nor too chunky. It had too much bow in the neck when it arrived and needed 3/4 of a turn on the trussrod to get the right relief. The bridge saddles were too high for my taste and the nut slots are still a bit high and will need filing to get them to an optimum level, but then any new bass needs a set up. The fretwork is nicely done, all the frets are smooth and level with no buzzes or choking anywhere, the fourth fret has a very slightly catchy edge on the treble side but nothing major.

The bridge is fine and the tuners are smooth.

Once set up, this bass plays very nicely. The sound is helped by the fresh D'addario strings it comes with but it has a good range of tones. In passive mode it sounds nice, a little like a Fender Jazz and the pickup blend control works very nicely giving a good range of tone with some nice subtle tone changes between the two extremes. In active mode it adds more depth or top end sparkle as required and the electronics seem hum and hiss free. Of course if you boost the treble right up the tone gets brittle, but again that applies to nearly all active basses. The mid control is a little disappointing since it doesn't have a huge effect but all the centre frequencies of the electronics seem well chosen and all the tones you can coax out of the bass (apart from the real extremes) are very useable.

I haven't gigged this bass yet, nor even rehearsed with it, so it still needs more real world testing, but first impressions are very favourable. I have to keep reminding myself that this bass cost less than one tenth of my main bass. It's tempting to say this is a great bass "for the price", I would just say no, never mind the price, this bass compares very very well with much more expensive instruments.
