Surprisingly good
Alina A, 27.12.2019
I've only played acoustic guitar and a bit electric until now; with that being said, I think the quality of this bass is really good, as always from Harley Benton. It's very very heavy, it looks and feels well built, and it came with a great set-up straight out of the box (from what I can tell)
I don't have a bass amp yet but I connected it through a mini guitar amp + headphones cause i had it on hand and it was really fine, and also through a 20w acoustic amp (just cause i had it laying around in the house), with Lows turned to the max and it worked like a charm when i needed it for practice.
The blue is a little bit darker than in the pictures but it has the shiny finish and looks great overall. It's excellent for the price and definitely worth the money

Honest Comparison
The Don, 23.01.2020
Most of my years playing the bass guitar, my axe of choice was Ibanez. I remember back in 1980 I received an Ibanez bass that was absolutely gorgeous with beautiful wood grain, and having that Alembic feature w/active circuitry. So Ibanez over the years have been my choice up until recently where I decided I wanted to try something different. In 2017 I bought a Fender Squier Jazz Bass, I was looking for something not to expensive but would give me that fat punchy sound I was looking for. I have bought a couple of Squier jazz basses and until recently I thought Squier was the best bargain for your money, then I started reading reviews and watching YouTube videos about the Harley Benton Jazz Basses and the comparisons to the Squier Jazz Bass. Last month I bought the Harley Benton JB-20, and in my opinion the Harley Benton is a better bass guitar than the Squier Affinity series, in terms of tone and playability - the HB out performs the Affinity, and for about a $100 less is remarkable. My next bass will be the Harley Benton JB-75 as an upgrade. I've been sold on the Harley Benton's, I gave it a try, and I am totally satisfied with the product, very well build, I found no blemishes or defects, I set the action to my personal specifications, and the bass plays great!
Sincerely,
Ramone Lyons
