I've been seeing a lot of really inexpensive Hofner copies lately, and was wondering if there is a BEST of these "el cheapos"...any one that stands above the rest as far as tone and construction are concerned, or if they are all made in the same factory, sold under different brands, and are equally bad. I'm not really interested in reviews of the individual basses (Jay Turser, Essex, Epiphone, etc.) as I can to this through a search. What I'm really interested in is information from people who have played several examples of the Beatle bass knock-offs and can compare. Anyone?
