" Hofner Club Bass /Case

" I got my Bass 2 days ago and it's been very hard to stop playing it.I'm already playing along with The Beatles & Mud Crush & Some other bands. Great Bass for the price and great sound. Takes you back to the mid sixties of all the great British bands and sound. So thanks Sweetwater for all of your help in making me pick the right bass . It's "AWESOME"! The "Bassman"! 😎 Peace! Rock On America!

Wonderful bass for guitar players!

This is the perfect bass for any guitar playing doing bass tracks. Very easy to play and a comfortable neck. Good tone as well.

Nice single cutaway!

I love this single cutaway, has a great feel to it. Love the vintage style control panel too! Will probably upgrade to the Tea Cup Knobs as well.

Slick bass! Love it.

I was looking for a light bass that still sounds good and plays well and I've found it. Flatwounds are the key to tone with this bad boy! My next purchase will absolutely be the German model next. Didn't want to spend the big bucks and not like it.

Fun bass !

This is just a fun bass to have around. sounds great unplugged and super light to strap on.Great tone also, dont be fooled! I ran this through my Rumble 500 head with two rumble 700 watt cabs, big, big sound! It catches a lot of peoples eyes as wellStaff was excellent of course. Fast shipping, perfect playing condition (the 55 point inspection is a nice touch)I would recommend getting the case for it, dont gig bag this one, its a semi hollow body and a bit on the fragile side. The case is nice and very well built, I have no worries when traveling with it or throwing it in the band van
