    First post, just joined this forum today. I started playing bass last year, and since I enjoy Beatles music I wanted the v62 reissue. I thought the specs were fairly fixed, since, after all, it's either a '62 replica or it's not. I finally received the bass after a 4 month wait (where's that German efficiency? :D ) and was a little surprised and confused when I looked it over. I thought there was no strap pin under the neck on the original, but there is one on mine. Also, I thought flame maple was used on sides and back, but mine is bird's eye maple. I have no idea if that's a good thing or not, but this doesn't look much like a '62 reissue. If it wasn't for the strap tuners one would never know. Does anyone know if Hofner varies their reissues from batch to batch or year to year? Thanks.
