Good bang for the buck

A bit poor setup but OK build quality, comfortable neck, does the job. For the price... it's great.

Authentic Beatles sound
Dub77, 27.12.2020
This bass is great value for money. It is well made and played really well straight out of the box. It required a set up like any new instrument. The strings it came with are not very nice, but I put flat wounds on it to get the Macca tone. Its fantastic.

Pros.. authentic 60s sound.
Very light to hold.
Comfortable to play.
Great fun and visually impressive.

Cons.. the tuners feel a bit weak, but are fine.
Fret board was very dry and needed oil.

Overall im very impressed and at such a great price, its well worth buying one.

Great Value
Beautiful, swap the strings and good to go., 28.04.2020
If you want a Hofner Bass and don't want to spend too much money then this is perfect. It is a good instrument, beautiful finish, good sound and authentic looking.
For a good sound you will have to swap the strings; as the ones it comes with are poor; but that is OK. I recommend the Pyramid Gold 040- 100 short scale; (amazing strings.)
Whilst you are at it it is worth oiling the neck with some lemon oil as it is very dry; and not as smooth as it could be.
It may take a little setting up, but this is a lovely instrument.

Sir Paul lässt grüßen
Andreas V, 13.06.2020
DER Bass, wenn man Paul McCartney Fan ist und nicht so viel Geld für den Made in Germany Höfner ausgeben kann/will!
Ich spiele nur nebenher etwas Bass und habe schon eine Weile vom 500/1 Bass „geträumt“ und habe nun bei dieser Special Edition zugeschlagen.
Special ist hier, dass die original Knobs aufgesetzt sind und ein kleiner Sticker mit der Aufschrift „ BASSMAN“ mitgeliefert wird, denn Paul Ende der 60er auf seinem Hause und vom Fender Amp mit dem selben Namen stammt.
Ein kleines Zertifikat liegt auf bei, auf dem geschrieben steht, dass der Bass (Made in China) in Deutschland „vollendet“ wurde.

Qualitativ ist nicht großartig was am Bass auszusetzen.
Er ist schön verarbeitet, leicht und sieht sehr schön aus. Lediglich die Intonation ist schwierig einzustellen, das ist aber wohl Bauart bedingt.

Der Sound ist super! Genauso wie man es erwartet und wenn man an die alten Beatles Songs denkt! + er bietet eine kleine Palette an Sounds die von tief-dumpf Bus hin zu Jazz-Bass artigen Sound reichen. Mein Favorit ist aber die Mischung aus beiden Pickups zusammen.

Insgesamt bin ich mit dem Bass sehr zufrieden und würde ihn jederzeit wieder kaufen!

P.S. Das kleine Höfner-Logo auf der Decke ist noch ein kleines i-Tüpfelchen oben drauf.
