lovely guitar

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

Great bass for guitar players

As it is short scale guitar players could step in as a bass player :)

I love the hollow body and I feel like mc cartney when rocking out on this Bass - and I can do all the runs on this bass haha

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

I'm a guitar player who also likes to play bass from time to and prefer short scale bass guitars so this neat little Beatbass looked like a great buy to me. Like all guitars I've purchased from Thormann the guitar was shipped very quickly and was remarkably well packed. On unpacking the Bass I was impressed by the quality of the finish, hardware and set up, after removing the strip of protective paper from under the bridge and the plastic sheet from the tops of the pickups the guitar was ready to tune and play. I am really amazed at how good this little bass sounds, like the Hofner original there are no tone controls but a huge range of tones can be found by using the two volume controls and three switches on the neat vintage looking control plate. If you're thinking of buying a violin style bass guitar give this one some serious consideration. Although I've only had this instrument for a couple of days I've hardly been able to put it down, the strings sounded a bit harsh to start with but after a few hours playing they have lost that new string edge and sound great, I almost feel guilty about paying such a low price for this wonderful bass.

Great Value!

This beatbass guitar is very light, and easy to play on. Especially if you have smaller hands ( the neck is very slim).

The chambered body gives a very warm sound and you can easily create overtones if one wishes.

The pickups is humbucking so no noise if you add some distortion.

You have big possibility to mix the pickup configuration, a switch to alter between solo and rytm is great.

If I start to travel and play live I´ll get one more for backup..

Sincerely.. jbk
