A good overall bass. It is NOT a Hofner though, it sounds "similar" but not the same. Pickups are a bit loud and some parts are "poorly made" to say the least. To put it into perspective, I got this bass for $115 CAD, don't pay any more than $200. And remember, it's a Epiphone, not a Hofner.
This is a hollow body bass guitar with a fantastic sound. I use flatwounds on mine and it has a delicious 'Thwunk' to it that is just as appropriate in Jazz as it is in EDM - the tone knob makes a big difference. I got mine second hand for around £200 and i'm very happy.
I got this bass on New Years eve; 2014. This bass sounds like no other bass I've played before. Most would probably disagree but to me there's something the sound I just can't get anywhere else. It has such a raw, tinny sound that most basses would fall flat on this kind of tone; but this guy does it just right.
