Harley Benton is on to a winning formula with its satin black finish / red tortoiseshell combo – its new TE-20HH (opens in new tab) guitar is sold out at time of writing (but you can win one (opens in new tab)). Now, following its satin black TB-70 SBK (opens in new tab) bass guitar (opens in new tab) model, there's four- and five-string MB-4 & MB-5 SBK Deluxe Series.
They're a sleek spin on HB's existing MB models, with a humbucker pickup (opens in new tab) in the bridge position with a coil-split mode activated via the two volume controls to to cover more tonal ground.
Basswood bodies help to keep the weight on the lower side and both models feature a bolt-on maple neck D-shape neck and rosecar fretboard with 21 frets.
The dark theme continues with hardware in black with a diecast black bridge.
