Bass of the Week: Harley Benton HB-60 WB

Harley Benton HB-60 WB Bass

This week we’re checking out the Harley Benton HB-60 WB, a semi-hollow body bass with a super affordable price tag. Inspired by basses of the ’60s, the bass features a short 30.5-inch scale and walnut brown finish for a vintage vibe.

“The body and set-in neck of the HB-60 are made of maple while the purpleheart fretboard is loaded with 22-frets,” the company writes. “The body binding and gorgeous cream pickguard exude plenty of vintage flair.”

Harley Benton also fits the HB-60 with a pair of vintage humbuckers with individual volume controls and a three-way switch.
