    How many diffrent types of Violin Basses are out there. Which are ones to keep clear from wihich ones are the real deal?Well we got the almighty Hofner being the big cheese. Is it worth it you guys decide.we all know to keep clear of the rogue violin bass.
    Then we got the epiphone.. so guys which are the keepers and which are merley a look alike

    Personally i want a violin bass style what are my options besides the hofner?

    Strangely enough, I really liked the Epiphone for... its slap tone.
