I'm currently hiring my double bass from school, but I have less than three months to go until I complete high school and go onto music school in Melbourne. When I leave I will be double-bass-less (but i have electric basses in abundance!) and I have found 'Hofner' basses for sale cheaply at many places. I realsie this is obvioulsy a cheaper company, and the basses are made in China. But, does anyone know anything about them thatwould be helpful to me?? Good or bad points, anything at all! Thanks!
