A thing of beauty!

NickA, 20.02.2016
After owning the HCT version of this bass, I finally bought the bass I'd dreamt of for years. Service as usual from Thomann was excellent - 4 days to UK with detailed tracking. Packaging was secure.
The bass was tuned perfectly out of the case, and fitted with Hofner flat wounds (which look very much like Pyramid Golds). The bass weighs less than the HCT as it does not have the sustain block, and as such the sound is slightly more woody and authentic. I use several effect pedals so I can get a more modern sound to suit my taste. The 64 Violin Bass is such an easy bass to play, so light and comfortable for a 2 - 3 hr gig. It came with the Hofner leather strap, which would be nicer if it was a softer leather, but looks authentic and fits the bass better than a standard strap would do.

Really glad I made the leap and bought this bass, now I have to sell my HCT version and I'll be sad to see that go!

First impression

Klaus42, 08.12.2014
After over 30 years of Jazzbass and 10 years Warwick Corvette Proline, I wanted to buy a lighter bass to spare my back. Have the Höfner bass hanging around and can make me that I, as an old Beatles fan, I have done this step 30 years ago!
Acceleration to the scale length very fast, sound good and above all very pleasant to play and carry. However, I have experimented with the belt a little and am now super satisfied.
