I bought this bass last summer and have now found what i did and did not like about the bass.

The bass is the cheaper version of the german Hofner Paul McCartney used from the moment Stuart Sutcliffe left the band to the album "With The Beatles" before getting replaced by the newer version. The bass is china made i believe but doesn't have any quality problems.

What differs this bass from the 1962 version is the placement of the pickups. On this bass both pickups are very close to each other. On the other bass one pickup is placed by the neck and on on the bridge.

The pickups and electronics worked perfectly except for one thing. When you turn both treble and bass pickups on it doesn't work. To get sound from both pickups at once you'll have to turn both pickups of. This is a problem on the ignition and contemporary basses. I don't know about the german basses as i don't own one.

I have always played on short scaled basses because when i was younger i couldn't reach on the normal sized basses. But i believe you'll get used to the scale if you're used to longer basses.

The strings on the bass are "meh". I would suggest you change those to the pyramid gold flat wounds for the real Macca sound.

Now on to the really nerdy things. Accuracy. The shape is near perfect. The pickups are not the same as the german ones but are close to them. The headstock logo is wrong for a 61 model. The knobs are wrong for a 61 issue but can easily be replaced by teapot knobs. There isn't a gap by the neck and the body to strap around your hofner strap. The switches are black and not cream white.

All in all a great bass for a smaller price.

Great bass to play

I needed a lighter bass, because of my shoulder and back. This bass is just right. As light as a feather sounds good, easy to play, with a lovely slim neck.set up well, ready to play. I had one in the seventies, I don't know why I sold it.Thomann as usual had a wonderful customer service, and it was sent the next day, unfortunatly DHL were really slow delivering it to England, it took 8 days, never had this problem before, always arrived after just 3 days. Never mind now I've got, its great.
Thanks again Thomann.

I love this bass, it sounds and looks fantastic and at a really good price however when I first restrung it one of the tuning pegs snapped!

I managed to repair badly for the time being but i'll have to replace the whole set really soon which I'm not very happy about.

As for the sound, it's just as you would imagine a hofner would sound but with better bottom end due to the pickup placement. I used to own a similar one with the pickups in the standard position and had to turn the bridge pickup off because the sound was dreadful.
I can use this bass for more than just Beatles tunes too, it fits in a number of different styles but I especially love using it for soul music.

Great sounding bass but the build quality could be better.
