hi! I bought a HB JB75 (sunburst with rosewood fingerboard), and it's working better than I could imagine. I sold my other basses when I realized that this one was working pretty good and had a wonderful fret-work (I like to keep my action the lowest possible). mine has a two pieces ash body, weights at least 4kg, not more, and I'm really enjoyning it. Picasa Web Albums - Pierfrancesco Sanò - Harley Benton... I know and can see that the inlays and the binding are real (plastic), and not painted. I've had a couple of Squier Vintage Modified, and the black inlays and binding were painted, and the same apply to the Geddy Lee signature (at least the Japan one, don't know if the recent Mexican has them painted). so, a friend of mine was interested in the Harley Benton with maple fretboard, but aske me if the inlays were painted or "real". I couldn't give him an answer, so I'm asking you about it. thanks a lot!
