I've only had my Höfner Shorty Bass BK for less than a week and I think I'm in love. This little bass is extremely well made. It is as elegant as it is robust. It comes with a nice well stitched gig bag which contains in it's front pocket a free cable and Allen keys to adjust the level of the fine tuning bridge and truss rod. Neither of these things was necessary on arrival as it comes perfectly set up with a very smooth action. I have tuned mine down to standard bass tuning (e) even though on a short scale it should be like having a capo on at fret 3. This means that it is very gentle on the fingers and so long as I don't play too hard it sound great. If I feel like doing some slap and ping techniques it needs tuning up to its optimal string tensions. The pickup is of a very good sound quality for the price. Over all I would highly recommend the Höfner Shorty Bass BK if like me you are on a tight budget and pressed for storage space.
