    Me likie! I wonder what the price point will be? (Meaning: I wonder if I can afford it)
     
  4. Regular Shorty is around 139, so maybe like 150?

    Shorty guitars are €139, the basses are €159.

    If it comes in under €200, I'll make it work somehow. :roflmao: I already warned my GF.

  6. Same scale as the regular 500/1.

    Perhaps, but a solid bridge near the bottom vs trapeze/bridge taking up almost a quarter of the body means a shorter overall length. I suspect neck dive will be an issue, just like the current Shorty. I don't care. I still want one.

    Not a fan of the pickup position, and I'd prefer the Club bass shape.
     
  10. Agree about Club shape.

    A violin-shaped Höfner Shorty? Dayung, I shouldn't have seen this. GAS surging.

    It's a Hofner that doesn't sound like one?
