    Hmmmm.... I actually think it looks much nicer than the hofner's I've seen. It isn't a hofner is it? I like the dark stain. Not my fav design in the worl, but kinda pretty.

    It's an Epiphone. German Gitarre & Bass magazine did a review in 10/99 IIRC. The pic is linked from their website.

    It's actually a pretty cool bass. I own one. It also comes with a telescoping rod so you can mount it like an upright, not that anyone in their right mind would want to do that! Tremendously loud, deep-voiced humbucker. Sounds better than most 60's Gibsons. It's a reissue of a reissue of a reissue...I bought mine really cheap, brand new. Sound good with a pick. So I say YEA or, uh, YAY.

    It's pretty. I like basses with the smaller bodies because the big ones get in the way and are clumsy and stuff... then again, I'm not really the biggest person out there:D
