Harley Benton Launches JJ Basses

Harley Benton JJ Bass Lineup

Harley Benton has unveiled a new set of basses with the JJ Series. The four-string JJ-450P and five-string JJ-550P each come in four finishes: blue, natural, white, and sunburst.

‘The powerful JB pickups in the bridge and neck position provide a clear and round bottom end, with plenty of attack and bite,” the company writes. “So whether you’re slapping and popping to funk grooves, or laying down heavy metal bass riffs, this bass will have you covered.”

Each bass is built with an ash body, Canadian roasted maple neck, and a roasted maple fingerboard with 24 frets. Other common features include a Mings BB bridge, a BY-823 diecast bridge, and chrome hardware.

The Harley Benton JJ-Series basses are available now with prices of $180 for the four-string models and $199 for the five-strings.

    The body shape reminds me of the Groovetools budget line by Conklin

    Great price for quality wood. Get it properly set with up new pickups you could have it sounding incredible for under 500
