Alright, I ordered a Sunburst one, but when it arrived I opened the box and came across with the black version. Well, I didn't get really happy initially, but once I took it off from the box and started to facing it, I could only thank Thomann for the mistake. The black version looks stunning. The white beading around the body and neck stands out, making contrast with the black painting. In the end of the day Paul McCartney is already known for using the SB Hofner, so why not having the black one just for a change? Soundwise the bass sounds AMAZING! But I'd recomend changing the strings and put on some flatwound 0.50. I recomend changing the tuners (the ones that equips this bass is completely rubbish) and the control panel for the 500/1 model (it cost about £80 here in this very website). Very pleased with the instrument.
