NBD!
« on: March 27, 2016, 05:59:21 PM »
New Bass Day!  Got a great deal on a Hofner Verythin on CL.  Sold an old Aria bass to fund it.

I'm as happy as a kid with a new toy, even though I'm an old man with a new toy!

Nice, that thing looks great. Love the fret markers. Is it short scale?

Very cool. Is it old or new made to look old?

It's a remake of a bass that Hofner made back in the 60s, but this one was made in 2013.

I forgot to mention the best part - it weighs about 6.5 lbs.  My 5-string weighs over 12 lbs.
