Retro bass with the full scale

Tim73, 04.01.2017
I'd previously owned the verythin short scale bass because it came with the classic intonation issues that these basses do (never bothered me but I did a session with a producer who moaned all the enjoyment out of owning it!). I was online one night when I saw Hofner did this long scale version and my wife actually said straight away "just buy it!" So I did and have never looked back. Amazing tone and finish. It does what you'd expect of a semi acoustic bass. A lot of fun and great value for the money.

Beautiful design, it looks good, but ...

26.11.2016
The finish is not it supposed to be from Höfner, especially at the price level.
Color and painting is beautiful, more brown than red.
Unfortunately, the time it came was missing one of the two strap knob. Dee was the hole, but you could see that they had just forgotten to turn The knot in.
There where the neck is glued on the body was there (I believe and hope) excess and dried white glue.
Where the two bridge leg goes through the top you can clearly see the bright wood, you have not tried to paint it.
It was impossible to properly indtonere D-stranded, it ran out of the screwing option.
In the extreme, I think, is that the neck and bridge pickupperene have exactly the same sound. This means that you have bridge and neck pickupperene turned up for the high or low notes so they sound exactly the same. Ie that one is relatively limited in its tone options. Volume and tone These knots are not the ones showed on for the pictures, but some standard some à la Gibson.
On the positive side, neck fantastik good to play on. It fits perfectly with my left hand. I do not know why, but I have the feeling that I have a "pre-production" bass and not the finished product.
