Harley Benton PB-20
Hello! Does anyone played this basses http://www.thomann.de/gb/harley_bent...ri_b_stock.htm i am planing to get one just for backup bass :hyper:
I haven't played that exact bass, but I do own a Harley Benton, and have played various other models by HB.
Their stuff is ok, nothing to get exited about, but for less than 70€, what do you expect?
I recently purchased a J&D bass (jazz bass) from musicstore.de (similar to Thomanns) , and to be honest, I prefer it to the Harley Bentons.
So, all in all, the Harley Benton is definately worth the price tag, but don't expect wonders.
As said. Pickups can be replaced, and the sounding will be different. Anyway the PB construction is that simple, it cannot be ruined, so the price is pretty fair
I have one, though when I bought mine it was called the HPB-120. Different headstock and probably a body made of worse material (doesn't seem like solid wood). Looks like this:
It's terrible. The neck is really wide, the truss rod is seized in place and has been since I got it, it buzzes heavily at every fret, the action is too high with the saddles slammed, the body is weirdly light and the neck is quite heavy but it does seem to balance fairly well considering. The hardware is your standard cheap Fender clone stuff. If you're looking at HB stuff for a backup, don't get this particular one. It's the bottom of their lines. If you're going for HB though, I was always particularly interested in these:

I was really tempted by the HBZ. I'd go for that one out of any of their stuff.
I hope to visit Thomann in a couple of months, so I may check them out if I get time.
[quote=JACink;14031841]I liked the look of the HBZ since they released it a few years ago, however, my worry is that if their normal bolt on stuff is not great, I am not quite sure what a neck thu would be like!!
Yes the neck thru models (hbz2004) are the worst in HB bass series )
