    I have two Brice Beatle basses from Rondo Music: http://www.rondomusic.bigstep.com/homepage.html;$sessionid$GG2323YAABUUCP5MFMOJPQR53QVSNPX0. I also have two Hofners, the Brices are very good and solid through the center of the body. I have heard tat these are made in the save factory that makes the Epiphone Viola bass. I wrote up a review on thier wbsite.

    I've got a Rogue Violin Bass from Musicians Friend and put Pyramid flatwounds on it. Definitely has the Beatles vibe, and at 1/5 the price of Hofner. Check it out and check out the reviews at Harmony Central -- it's one of the highest-rated Beatle Bass clones out there. Great bass for the price.
