Bargain Violin Bass.

maninblack, 21.05.2017
I bought this instrument as I wanted a change from the usual Fender type instruments we all play. I was surprised at how well made the instrument was, and how well it was finished. The open machine heads are well made and smooth in operation and nicely low geared. And they stay where you put them. I lowered the action slightly, but adjusting the thumb screws on the bridge and there is plenty of adjustment up and down to allow low or high actions to be set up easily. Intonation is adjustable by moving the "saddles" on each string out of their slots and moving them back or forward one slot at a time, whilst moving the bridge back and forth across the guitar. Those used to a floating bridge will know what I mean. Take your time with this, it makes the instrument so much easier to pay and tune.

The instrument is very light compared to a Fender type guitar, and is well balanced - it is not neck heavy. I found it very easy to play with the round wound strings it came with. Now the negative points. The controls are confusing, as they are on all Hofner guitars. You just have to play around with the slide switches and expect them to do the opposite of what you expect, then make a note of which sound equated to which setting. The out put of the pickups is quite low, so I run it into a Behringer graphic pedal, which allows more tone control and adds an element of signal boost.

Overall an outstanding instrument for the money and well worth it if you want something that looks a little bit different.

Classic Sound, Classic Look, Great Feel, Poor Quality(electronics)

09.09.2016
I bought this bass a few years ago, but I am reviewing it now for longevity feedback. I only began bass when I got it and things were off to a great start until it failed

The sound is what you would expect from a semi-hollow bass, punchy and bright. I was going through a major beatles phase and this met the requirements me and my band wanted. There is also a lot of versatility with the stock pickups and controls. Everything from Alt to Indie style, it suits. Tuners could have been better, they would feel like I was going to snap them off sometimes if turned a little more when tuning.

The look is great, sunburst finish looks amazing. Felt like Paul when playing.

The feel is also amazing. Lightweight body with a great feeling neck. A gig with this bass was a dream as I could play for hours and forget it was on me.

After 2 years of playing the electronics broke and it would no longer be able to play through an amp. This may have been due to poor craftsmanship or electronics being faulty.

Maybe I got a bad egg, would still recommend.
