Hohner Rockwood

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Gunnar Þór, May 10, 2003.


  1. I picked up a cheap Hohner Rockwood bass today that I'm going to defret and I'm wondering what kind of wood the body's made of, any of you have a clue? Hohner's website doesn't have any info on them and Google searches turned up nothing.
     
  2. Those hohner instruments don't seem to be very popular in the US.. But in Latin America, they are some of the most common instruments you see in most "cheap" music stores..

    I'm not sure.. but those bodies must be made of alder or basswood.
     
  3. Out of those two I'd guess basswood rather than Alder, I have a MIM jazz made out of Alder and it's a few pounds heavier than the Hohner.
