    I've recently been looking into this two headless basses mainly becos of their portability and price.
    Doesn't anyone has experience with either or both of them and whether the built quality is the same?

    The hohner has active electronics and a nicer flamed top. has a higher MSRP price also... i dunno how that will translate for most, but would seem like it has a higher value.
    Its has 2 jazz pickups compared to the EMG HBs on the spirits. How different will the sound get?

    But basically, other than built quality... is the actives on the hohner worth the price? i would definitely try changing the pickups and electronics on the spirits if i buy them.

    BTW, someone mentioned them coming from the same korean factory?
