An interesting guitar

onetw, 22.03.2018
Well look at that! A bass with all the bells and whistles for less than 140 euro! As always there is a catch, but let me start with the good things (and there are many):

The materials used are way ahead of all the others at this price point and even higher
-The body is made out of ash (much better than basswod)
-It has a beautiful grain and it is made out of two pieces that were quite well aligned. You wouldn't really see that it is a two piece body without looking very closely
-The maple neck is one piece of solid wood and it has binding (a very rare sight at this price point)
-The pearloid fret inlays look great. I expected them to be just chunks of white plastic but they aren't much worse than the ones on my Les-Paul.
-The pickups sound great and the electronics work flawlessly
-Brass saddles (very cool!)
-Tuners work well
-Overall, you get so much "stuff" for your money that it's quite hard to believe.

Now to the bad things:

-Craftsmanship is generally speaking quite lacking. This is obvious especially when you look at the neck. The fret ends have not been hammered in properly and are higher than they should be (It's as if they were "peeling off"). This results in a lot of fret buzz. The fretjob is in general the worst thing about this guitar.
-Straight out of the box, the neck is covered by some dust, as if they didn't clean it after sanding. This is however easy to get rid of.
-The fretboard is not sanded properly and small scratches from the sanding paper are visible
-The paintjob is very good, but there are three tiny left out dots on the corners of the neck joint, not a big deal and they are barely visible.
-The fret metal is "smudged" on the neck's binding; it goes off after a while of rubbing.
-The pickguard looks as it looks, more unfortunately it has a small drop of black paint on it (it's 3-ply though).
-The nut is made out of some cheap plastic, it doesn't look splendid but gets the job done, its just that all the other hardware is much better quality.
-The neck is quite thick but this is a matter of preference. Also the fretboard wood has an unusual woody grain unlike rosewood.
-The strings on my guitar were terrible, they sounded dull and one of them even snapped when I was tuning the guitar for the first time.

All in all, it is obvious that these guitars aren't being made by the world's finest luthiers who take their time to do everything perfectly. There is actually quite a lot of work left to be done, so let me guide you through the steps to finish it off:

-Add the 5 euro Harley Benton bass strings to your order and throw that stock abomination away :)
-Hammer the fret ends in to prevent fret buzz.
-Use some fine sand paper and go over the frets once more, on my guitar they were levelled but not really fine-sanded.
-Polish the scratches on the fretboard (perhaps by your dremel's fine polishing wheel).
-Take some oil and clean the fretboard, it is going to look much better. You can use lemon oil but even wd-40 will do just fine.
-Adjust the truss rod, action and intonation.

Do all of that and you have an incredible guitar for a ridiculously small amount of money; whether you can do it is something to consider before buying, but the piece that you get might be better made, you never know.
Besides, Thomann's outstanding service has your back and you can return it, in case you don't like it. I also have to give them special credit since they've sent me the new strings for free.

Best bass for it's price!

Young-Bin, 23.04.2016
First of all, I was blown away by the quality of this instrument. I heard very good reviews about it before but I was still a bit skeptical...BUT it was JUST as I had heard it would be.

The hardware on this is really worth much more than how much I payed for it. Wilkinson pickups and bridge?? wow.
Great quality stuff there.

The looks on this bass...well you be the judge of that. Doesn't it look great??
- 70s style block pearloid inlays (you won't find this kind of look for this kind of money)
- lovely 3 tone sunburst on a quality American ash
- Harley Benton(thomann) really killed in the looks department on this one, in a good way ofcourse.

It sounds great! I did an AB with a Fender Mexican Jazz Bass and I personally thought this was on par if not better than the Fender!! unbelievable! There is also a good response with the blend knobs.

I had this for about 1 and a half weeks and I couldn't really find much fault in the build of the bass. The frets are nicely trimmed on the sides so it doesn't hurt your hands, and it came setup very well! All I had to do was maybe adjust the saddles to intonate it a little bit but even that was very small. It also seems to be very durable so it should be fine when going on stage as well as on the road.

The only 2 cons I found about this instrument was the pickguard and the weight.

The pickguard doesn't really look like a genuine turtoise shell pickguard up close. Looks a bit "cheap" but that's nothing you can't fix by changing it.

The heavy weight can be both a pro and a con.
It's heavy because it's made of American ash body and that actually contributes to the resonance of the bass as there is more material and mass BUT for a guy like me who isn't "bulky", this might be a problem as it's too heavy to play long hours on stage.
SO my fix on this was buying a good quality strap.
I got a Mono Cases "The Betty Strap" which is doing a miracle work for me. It balances out the weight of the bass and has paddings to relieve the stress on my shoulders. So get a nice strap! I recommend the Betty Strap.

All in all, Great instrument! Great Price! Great Service!
Kudos to you Thomann!!
