So due to a change in circumstances the bassist on my course had to drop out. So as there are two guitarists we've decided to split up bass duties. This meant I needed a bass. Hence...

I thought I'd give one of the new Harley Benton models a punt. For 100 I can't go that wrong...



I'm quite excited for it to arrive and depending on how I get on I may even pick up bass as my second study instrument (would mean I'd get lessons from an amazing teacher too!).

The bass just arrived, and first impressions are really good. The setup could use a tweak but apart from that it looks great! Had a very quick play through a guitar amp and it sounds awesome.

Will spend more time with it later and take some pictures.
