The Harley Benton PJ SBK Deluxe bass is available in 4-string and 5-string models, both with an attractive Satin Black finish. Both versions are equipped with a split-coil pickup in the neck position and a single-coil pickup in the bridge.

These Harley Benton PJ SBK Deluxe have basswood bodies and a bolt-on maple neck with a Rosecar fretboard factory fitted with 20 frets. Both models have a comfortable modern C-profile that should suit most players. The standout thing on these models is the satin black finish and all-black hardware. This gives these models a great stealth look and makes them look pretty swish, especially with the red tortoiseshell pickguards.

P/J Pickups

The two pickups of unknown origin are of the P/J variety and are wired volume, volume and tone. A nice simple and well-known layout for bass. Perfect for most situations, as you have a choice of tones available with this classic pickup and control setup.

4 or 5 strings?

Although both variants are almost identical, there are small differences. The neck of the four-string is minimally more manageable at 42 mm rather than the 45 mm of the five. Both models have a scale length of 34 inches (864 mm).

The Harley Benton PJ SBK Deluxe costs 129 euros* with four strings, respectively 139 euros* with five strings. You can pre-order both these new bass models now. They look like great value for money at these price points and I would hazard a guess this satin black finish will prove popular.
