absolutely beautiful bass!
i'm surprised that they didn't use cream colored switches and 'teacup' knobs on it. IMO, that would be icing on the cake.
Sweetness, pure and simple.
THANKS and true that on the tea cups. Stu's had them.
Thanks guys. In hindsight I guess that's why I already have her on the bed....
Very nice! Where'd you get it? Can't find any info online.
I found it at Alto Music in Middletown, NY. They had a shipment of new Hofner CTs and ICONs. When I saw it, I had to pick it up and make sure that it was new. Indeed it was and at $550, I guess that puts at the high end in the CT price range.
I don't have any clue where it was manufactured. I may have to contact Hofner USA to find out. Nothing and I mean nothing is listed anywhere on the internet.
One thing I will say in regard to the pick ups is that they are very low output. It took me and the store techs a while to figure out how the Hofner switches function and determine that the pickups were indeed working. But the neck is really sweet and it will be my first short-scale at what seems to be 30". I wasn't sure I'd ever see another one so....
Only $550!? Damn I'd pay like $2k for it!!!
Great looking bass. Congratulations.
We'll see. If they become hard to find..?? Maybe, more than $550, but I doubt $2K. In any case, I couldnt say no at that price.
This still doesn't appear in the Hofner web...
How thick is the body, 4 or 5"?
i just did a yahoo and google search on it and guess what? this thread is the ONLY link that came up! absolutely beautiful bass, though. shame you're the only one who will ever own one but i guess that's good news for you
here's a really inexpensive way to make it look even better:
but i would definitely keep the stock ones since it appears to be such a rare bass in order to have every original part that it came with.
What does the Rhythm/Solo switch do? Boost the volume? Change the tone? Something else?
I want one.
it's a boost on solo but it does change tone a little bit. at least it does in my turser...a little brighter.
