Hello everyone! I can't resist writing a few words about my new acquisition. When I go to a musical instrument store in my city, my mood immediately deteriorates. Because for us left-handers, these stores have nothing to offer. .. Absolutely nothing. At best, there is one acoustic guitar, and that's if you're lucky. About an electric guitar, and even more so a bass for left-handed people, you don't even need to ask: there is none of this in stores! But they can offer you to order a blind instrument from the catalog. in that catalog in the budget range, the number of offers is amazing (sarcasm). There are exactly two of them! How and where I bought my instruments is a topic for a separate sad story. Therefore, when I found myself on Thomann's website, my wishlist rapidly approached in size to Guinness Book of Records))). Now I will slowly but steadily reduce it, crossing out the already acquired. Starting from the first position: Harley Benton JB-75MN LH NA Vintage. Paid, waited. Although I had to wait exactly forty-five days ((. Although these are claims not to Thomann, but to the postal service. Expectations did not disappoint. The instrument arrived in two cardboard boxes. The large one, the outer one was slightly crumpled, but the inner one did not suffer at all, like the bass guitar in it. Now about the tool itself. The Harley Benton JB-75MN LH NA Vintage turned out to be exactly what I expected for the money. A good budget version of the jazz bass. Everything was done soundly and neatly. The appearance deserves 9 points out of 10. Especially pleased with the neck, thin very nice on the hand, very comfortable. The jack for the jack was so tight that it took a lot of effort to disconnect the cable. But I think that over time this will go away. The balance of the instrument itself is slightly shifted and the neck outweighs, but for an instrument like jazz bass it can As for the sound, I can put 6 out of the same 10 points. Replacing the strings with other strings of a well-known brand, bought by the way, from Thomann, achieved an improvement. Now my sound rating fluctuates between 7 and 8. Now oh, it's unpleasant m ... All those instruments that went through my hands had classic springs for adjusting the pickups in height, but I did not find them on the Harley Benton JB-75MN LH NA Vintage. Instead of them, some kind of elastic pads made of a substance similar to tourist The mat is made of polypropylene. Therefore, there are problems with the adjustment of the pickups. You can still lower them lower, but you can’t raise them up. I understand that the instrument is of a budget class, but this is a very strange way to save money. I will adjust it on my own, though for now I don’t know how ((... Conclusion: Harley Benton JB-75MN LH NA Vintage is a very good tool for beginners, or as a second tool to substitute for established musicians. In terms of price and quality it is ahead of many. In terms of the convenience of playing it and the sound will not satisfy everyone, but very many. And although the untidiness with the adjustment of the pickups spoils the overall picture, I still recommend the Harley Benton JB-75MN LH NA Vintage to everyone who loves the growl of a bass guitar, but not has a lot of money in his pocket. And although they say that happiness cannot be bought, a small piece of it can be bought here, from Thomann ... And I will come back here!
