I would like to look at a '62 Karl Hofner fully carved 3/4, this Saturday. Local luthier is asking $1950. "Worth about $6500", has ebony fingerboard, adjustable bridge, new Thomastic Spiro-core. Set up and gone through, top was removed, sound post has been cleated. I've been playing electric for many years, but am unfamiliar with real basses. Is the price reasonable? attractive? questionable? What should I look for? What questions should I ask? I play rock, swing, fusion. My thoughts are that this bass will not depreciate. I welcome any comments or insight anyone can offer.
