am feeling super-wired about playing bass atm but not at all happy with my sound & gear. so have my heart set on one of these.
i know a lot of serious bass players say they are crapboxes & (superlimited tone & no sustain) but i just kinda like em.
& maybe i'm getting shallow as i age, but i think one would look good on me. ('there's nothing skin deep about my superficiality' oscar wilde).
it does have to be black. i'm not into classic sunbursts generally (the browny-orange thing), & sunburst on a violin bass just screams 'twist & shout' (which isn't me).
i think the cheapest hofner is the ignition at about £250 new. the affinity squier first step of the hofner range. but that's my level. i'm a basic bitch & good enough is good enough.
i know there are cheap tributes & knock offs on ebay etc but i want to try a first rung hofner (if i can) rather than go the copy route. quality probably more consitent.
re condition, i can live with general wear & tear, or missing (replaceable) bits. try me. thanks!
re price. probs somewhere between £150 to £200 from scuffed/bumped/incomplete to mint?
