this is identical to the epiphone as far as i can tell from research

it's hard to imagine how hofner could improve on this other than cosmetically

er - edit - the top is ply, not solid maple as the description might lead one to believe, still not much to moan about in an electric

the components are all very good quality, the volume controls are great and can be used to modify the tone by blending the two pickups

edit 2 - used finest wire wool lightly, to take the shine off every part, including machine heads - massive improvement in tone - i think i learnt where the terms 'bright' and 'dull' come from in terms of timbre

used wax to bring back a little sheen

all my instruments are now refinished this way, the most dramatic being my irish d whistle all black and shiny plastic, now sounds very close to wood

Love it, will be even better with flatwound, I like the simplicity of switching between pickups & no tone control is no issue for me, lovely action

As a guitar player, who occasionally plays bass, and with a neck injury, I was looking for a short scale bass that has a good neck, light weight and does the job.

This certainly looks the part, for the price it's incredible, and it plays well, balances reasonably on a strap, and the neck is really nice, once you adjust to the slightly unconventional proportions.

Most bass guitars have quite wide string spacing at the bridge end, but this neck stays narrow all the way down.

The only criticism I have, is that the dot markers on the side of the neck - to my eyes - are very difficult to see in poor lighting. They could do with being a touch bigger / brighter and not covered in dark lacquer.

But, overall, it's infeasibly light, compared to my normal scale Vox White Shadow Bass - which is quite light, anyway - and two humbucking pickups, good controls, have not had a problem with tuning either in rehearsals or gigs, and for the price it is stunning, visually as well as in playability.
