Finally got the Hoffy I always wanted. Just sold my Euroburst (which I loved) to a board member, which helped me snag this '61 Reissue Cavern Bass.

Thanks Tim. I even like the looks of the pickup spacing. Ha.

Me too. Is that the primary difference from, say, a 500/1?

Well this is also a 500/1 but yep, other than some minor hardware and cosmetic differences, that’s the biggest difference. So far I like the tone better with pickup in the sweet spot.

Indeed. I’m grateful to have snagged a couple of those chickens lately.

Hey Matt, Looks great! Just wondering when looking at the case what is the circle thing on the top of the case above the headstock?

Wow Matt, that’s one great looking bass! I’ve never really been a Hofner fan, but this one is the business, and has opened my eyes! Congrats!

Thanks, it’s a work of art. Most of their stuff is! :)
