Info on Basses

  1. I picked up two Basses at a garage sale and wanted to know if anyone knew anything about them one is a Hofner violin bass the woman said she bought in 67 for her son and the other one I bought at another yard sale is a Cameo Bass that looks just like a Fender Precision circa 62 I think the guy bought this in the late 70's to early 80's I got the hofner for $35.00 and the Cameo for $25.00

    If the Hofner is in good shape you stole it.

    hofners are pretty expensive nowadays... if the condition is right you might have hit the jackpot!

    dunno, im no hofner expert...
  4. The Hofner was not into bad of shape except for the finish was dull I spent approx a hun each for both basses to get them into playing shape. Ironically enough I like the Hofer for finger funk lines. And Cameo is as close a copy of a 62 Precision as I have seen
