Thomann selling Harley Benton basses as 'Decoration only'

Recommended Posts

Some more popped up this morning, but were gone by the time my computer was opened and running again. Interesting P90 equipped semi-hollow tele. No basses that I noticed.

Updating on a Saturday happens quite often. I think it happens on Sundays too.

(Checks).

Yes, there were dekos updated on Sunday the 26th of April, 2015. Including a left handed Jazz Bass. Probably many other Sundays as well.

Really? I guess I haven't been as obsessive about checking for a couple of months.

How did those all go so quickly...? :|

It seems to be the new model for Dekos. They go fast. I'm hoping that the lesser interest in this thread now is indicative of lesser interest in the world in general. So that eventually we'll get back to the point where dekos will last hours or even days before selling out.

I wasn't thinking it was. I was hoping that the same decrease in interest was happening elsewhere as well.

Somebody (or some other people) thought so as well. It's sold out.

A bargain for someone... I had the sunburst one as well, they really were excellent basses.

Worth keeping an eye out for any more if anyone is after a decent jazz for a ridiculous price :)

There were some (including sunburst and LH natural) yesterday. I'd guess that there will be some tomorrow. But, anyone who wants one will have to be damn quick.

And there gone!

Finally got around to finishing a PJ deko project last night, £28 deko + a £39 Chinese eBay neck + a £5 Chinese active preamp and it's a beast of a bass!

The neck is especially nice really good glossy finish and I really like the dark tint, the preamp is also surprisingly good for the price clean sounding and keeping the P-bass tone but with a bit more control with boost/cut bass and treble.

Apologies about the awful picture I only have my phone and crappy lighting in my music room
