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.

Has potential-great for the price

The primary reason I chose this bass was for its size and hence portability. It would be excellent for anyone starting out who does not like strain of guitar strap on shouder or someone with a bad back. The sound is very bright and zingy, probably emphasised by the brand new strings. It lacks depth because it is missing most of the body. It surprisingly sounds very good for jazz! Perhaps it is the pick-up? String bends sound very cool. The body is very small but fretboard and neck are standard size, so dont be fooled into thinking that this is not a "grown-up's" bass. The action is a little high for my liking straight out of the bag, but I'm sure with a little adjustment this will sound decent enough. This bass has great potential

Excellent

I bought this as a present for my daughter as my Bass is a little big for her. I had to plug it in and have a quick play and she is going to be very happy with it. The sound is great and it's very comfortable, the size will be perfect for my 8 year old.

The quality is actually quite high for the price and it looks like it should last until my lass is big enough for a full size bass.

In my opinion this bass is ideal for two things, children and travelling. If I was out on the road a lot I'd be taking one of these for sure.

I'm secretly looking forward to playing it some more myself!

Pros:

it's small, well built, ideal for beginners and sounds great.

Cons:

I can't think of any!
