Just hit the BIN on a nice 63/64 Höfner Senator.  £510 ($700). I already own 3... '64, '60, '65

A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

Single-pickup large-bodied. But I do collect for fins. I have both Blonde and Brunette ;-)

The blonde to the right, with two knobs (but of course!) is really beautiful. All that's missing is a wig... ;D

Congrats on your growing Hofner bass family. I see the one with the tort has a treble clef on the headstock along with a small bass clef. You'd think they could have just featured a bass clef by itself but I guess that would look too plain.

Those are all just beautiful!
Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)
