I submitted multiple threads about a hollow body. Then multiple threads about a Beatle bass. Next, threads about which one to buy, and then which strings to use........on-and-on. No one made fun of me, or the time I took to buy a bass. I finally bought a Hofner ignition, and La Bella flats. I am in bass heaven. I love the hollow, woody tone, and I love the fullness of the flats. So, thanks all for all the advice for someone who took forever to make up their mind. This forum has so many kind, helpful, and patient pros. Again, thanks for all the help; you guys are great!
