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.

almost sent it back but glad I didn't
rubbertankboy, 20.06.2021
out of the box it was terrible! the nut was waaaay too high, the set up was all over the place! ding in the front of the guitar (from factory) buzzed a lot! was going to send it back but out of pure laziness could not be bothered with it in mind to fix it myself at some point. so after all the work into it and most importantly FLATWOUNDS! I absolutely love this bass!

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.
