Hofner Bass Copy (Yes, Another Post About Them :D)
I Currently Own A Terrible Yammah Bass, Doesnt Sit Will, Doesnt Feel Good. Just As A Warning I Am Not Really A Bassist, I Own Guitars Pianos Drums And Random Small Instruments...I Picked Up A Bass About A Year Ago (Yammah somethingorother for £45 at a car boot) It Was Ok For Playing Simple Heavy Root Note Riffs But When It Came To Playing Rock And Roll 12 Bar Blues It Just Doesnt Feel Right, I Have Ended Up Putting The Low On My Amp All The Way Up And Playing Bass On My Guitar...After That Ramble I Want To Get To The Bottom Of The Best Beatles Violin Hófner Bass (Copy) Currently I Wanted To Purchase The Hofner Ignition But Am Told By My Parents That It Is Too Expensive, I Have Heard About Brice and Epiphone But Never Played Any Of Them, If Anyone Has Owned Or Owns A Couple Of Copies Could You Reviw Them? Thanks :)

Just get a Hofner Icon. Cant' beat it. Unless you are looking to spend under $200, then for for one of the other brands.

This. I can vouch for the quality vs. pricepoint. Been playing one since 2007...

There are a bunch of cookie cutter Hof copies that use the same hardware, woods, etc. and are nearly identical in quality. I have a Jay Turser around here somewhere that is a blast to play.
If you have trouble getting the tone you're after, drop a cap in there. There are a few spares in your post. :D

I agree pretty much ditto for the one thousand Fender Jazz clones if you can find a used Icon grab it otherwise I would grab a clone and drop some Labella Beatle Flats in her and call it a day.

Just As Another Side Note, Is It laBella Strings That McCartney Used? (On His Hofner In the Let It Be/Get Back Era)

I think he used Pyramid's which are the stock strings for the German Hofners he also used T.I flats and he used Maxima which were the stock Ric strings.
