This bass is incredibly flexible in the studio :)
Put some flat wound strings on it and you will get the McCartney thumping bass sounds from the sixties. Purchased second hand in early 2015 and used for Phased Out live shows and recordings of EP .

This thing is so much fun to play. It has it's quirks (tuning is a bit of a wildcard) but it truly is a unique instrument. From what i've read, the ignition series does a great job of emulating the Hofner experience while being cost effective.
