Were the two original Hofner basses that Paul McCartney owns both be short scale 30"? I just read some info about how he bought one and then got another as a gift from Hofner in 1963 and that he later did some custom work on the 1962 model with different pickups and I think a new sunburst paint job. The Wiki also spoke about his 1961 Hofner, as well as George's Gretsch, being stolen from Abbey Road Studios. While I am at it, has anyone ever replaced the tuners on a Hofner with new ones that are better? If so, which brand and was there any extra work involved with mounting them? Also, new pickups or a new bridge?
