Awesome instrument.
Asdrubal. 05.04.2023
What can I say? Incredible feeling on the fretboard, I'm loving the engraved parts so much (this should be standard on all HB instruments btw) The Firemist color is amazing and I do love the texture as well, It sounds great but not a big fan of Roswell pick ups. They do their job but I feel you could do some variations just as do you with guitars, maybe emgs? My only gripe of the lack of proper JB knobs, as I am not a fan of p-bass knobs on Jazz type basses. All of this easily fixable for me anyways.
All in all, it is a worthy Bass to own,one that will become part of my arsenal. Keep up the great job!

The JB-25TH Firemist is a great bass period. Not great for a Harley Benton, it is just a great bass, particularly when you factor in the price point. I bought mine a little over a month ago and I was impressed right out of the box. It is a great looking bass and well made bass. I figured that if it would have a weak point I would find it in the pickups, but even the Roswell pups sound really good. The only changes that I made to the bass was the stock strings. Don't get me wrong D'Addario makes good strings, but the Dogal strings that I use are IMO better. I also had my luthier install an Audere four band preamp. The preamp made enough of a difference that when I picked my bass the luthier to me "you have to hear this bass now. It sounds amazing!" He plugged the bass into a Genzler amp and he was right, the bass sounded amazing. When I took it home I plugged it into my Phil Jones amp and the sound was and is impressive. The bass is highly articulated, clear, with booming lows and sparkling highs. In short, I am highly pleased with my purchase.


Solid classic

The upgrades on this bass are awesome.. feels great, looks great and plays great.. and as usual Thomann did a great job on fit and finish.. shipping was super fast


Great quality bass for beginners
Zack A 03.01.2024
I bought this bass a beginner bass player who also has a background with guitar:
Pros: high quality for the price, comfortable neck, fit and finish has improved (since the purchase of my fusion III).
Cons: frets are a little scratchy but not horrible
Pots seem to work but feel cheap.
