What is your opinion of this product?
I own 3 other Hofner basses...they are all sunburst. Decided to go with a Black bass this time and not disappointed. Tone, feel and German electronics are spot on.

Incredible instrument!
What is your opinion of this product?
I was debating whether to get the Ignition Bass which is substantially less or this Contemporary and I decided to spend the money. I made a very wise choice...beautiful instrument and German electronics.

Beautiful guitar but far from setup!
What is your opinion of this product?
The bass is beautiful but far from being setup and ready to play. I had to take it to my local guitar guy to make it playable. Pickups were buried deep and stuck. They needed to be pulled up before adjusting. It's not quite what I expected for the money spent but I'll keep it now that I had the work done.

Fantastic Guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
Very clean and played well right out of the box. Excellent tone and sustain. I could probably lower the action a little and still be okay but the intonation is pretty much right on already. The hardware is solid and the controls/knobs seem very durable.
