Many of you know, I acquired a Hofner bass in February. It was an impulse buy while I was killing time in my favorite local music store and saw it on the wall. I just wanted to have it as sort of a novelty, but never dreamed how much I’d love it. To my knowledge, @JerryP and @Sully are the only other Buzzers who have Hofners.
Since then, I have recorded 4 covers with it, songs ranging from Southern Rock to New Wave to Contemporary Rock. It can handle any genre of music it seems. I have grown to love it so much, that I rarely play my ESP anymore. I’m actually thinking of adding another Hofner in black.
I was perusing the Hofner site today, and came across this article regarding Paul McCartney’s stolen Hofner. It remains a mystery what ever happened to that bass, but it makes for good reading if anyone is interested.
