Contrle Chinese manufacturing in Germany
A pan shot (look close to a Les Paul but low)
Table pica, maple back, neck maple / mahogany (?)
Internal beam which makes it heavier than the German model (which is 4 times the price)
Two Hofner bass type pickups
Slecteurs on / off, volume two microphones
Bridge with fixed bridges which does not allow to refine precisely harmonics and that makes it a bit wrong in acute ... I think this is the case for all Hofner.
Round comfort, you just get used to the short scale and the sensation of having a guitar with four strings and a longer handle hands!
Well balanced, pleasant access to the desti- nations most recently frets even if the accuracy is not the 100%.
The jack is pure shit, jack mle can turn in which gnre buzz. We must therefore change it. The mcaniques (guitars) also are a bit cheap and I feel that may break easily.
Original Rgl to be playing mdiator (high enough strings that can hardly down flush with the key) is typically a 60's sound comes through. The sustain is Introduced more than I imagined. The pickups sound a little too high and aigrelets to be utiliss in all configurations (possibly with a fuzz as the internal beam quicker the feedback of a hollow body).
It sounds, it's nice, it's lightweight but it is not versatile.
The drop D is forgotten, too imprcis.
Nice little Hofner not chre the look diffrent from the violin, she sticks a 60's era and any kind of revival. And as we live an era where nothing is invented, it can still be used. Its ergonomic design makes it very pleasant but remains a second low.
