A very cheap (149€ !) copy of the famous Höfner beat bass. Had to work a bit (a lot!) to made it playable but surprisingly… it sounds ok, and rather close to the real thing (the amp helps a bit, but it sounds good with a cheap tranny Laney too).
The strings (roundwound) are stock, and I’ve ordered a real Hofner bridge (the stock one is quite dangerous and ugly) and flatwound strings.[vimeo]http://www.vimeo.com/6321099[/vimeo]
