I was looking around for a cheap bass and while looking at the squier VM jazz basses spotted this for 100

Any thoughts from people on either the bass or Harley Benton experiences?

no idea about that particular bass, but ive got direct experience of their 5string modern-style bass, and their 7string Floyd-equipped guitar. both badly needed setups, but they were built well. pickups were better than i expected in both cases. main problem on the bass was the nut. it was cut too low on the Gstring, but i think more recently all the harley benton guitars n basses are from different factories maybe. the whole line has changed since those ones came into my life. for the better probably.

My friend bought a cheapish bass and as far as I could tell it was pretty good apart from the nut being set too low on the E string. He complained a couple of times and ended up getting a practice amp for free and half his money back.... I'm guessing by the looks of that thing that it could be pulled into shape with a few tweaks and wot not.... pretty
