I stopped by guitar center about 2 months ago and played this Hohner B Bass. It was setup horribly but I thought it had potential. I went home to think about it and when I went back it was gone. I went there today to look for a case and whaddya know, it was back. And this time with a mint SKB case for $149.00. At that price it was a no brainer. A new set of strings and some elbow grease and flitz polish and she's a player now. I love the neck and the tone ain't bad at all. I really like the drop D bridge. It wasn't setup right and wasn't working at the store but now it seems fine and drops to pitch nicely. I'm going out the door now for band practice and taking it along. It'll be a fun NBD night.
