I may even try out the travel guitar turn it into a slide guitar and the resonator later in the year Also I believe that they do customisation. Personally I would have preferred a cash stripped of this bar to a sound even closer to the original. Korea and China don't have this problem. Unfortunately, here in Tokyo, you can only purchase the Chinese made guitars. It will surely not the robustness of a Fender. In fact I would hazard a guess that many western guitar buyers have decided not to purchase Chinese made product from Chinese websites because they do not trust what they are reading and have no confidence in that they will receive what they think they are purchasing. My nephew bought one a couple of years back.
Given that the website store indicated that they were actually a guitar factory sort of made sense. Made in japan Never once played a dog in the high end of their line benson, metheny series for example. For the price, no complaints. As I mentioned before, they are all nice instruments within their targeted price points, so the solution is to simply buy several of each. What should I complain about? The arbiter of quality becomes brand instead of actual quality and people lose the ability to tell if something is well made by look or touch. I replaced them with Höfner flatwound and there's no comparison. You will find that one day suddenly you can't adjust the truss rod the way you want, the finish starts wearing badly, hardware starts breaking.
And, of course, specifications may change over time, sometimes without notice. It is clear that combining this low and a compressor Rocktron changed its sound reproduction at all in all. The finish isn't that good. Introduced subsequently to the violin bass. I almost send it back, the salesman convinced me to Woodbrass to wait for a change of course before I spun a final decision.
The sound is smooth, treble feutré. To their credit; Guitar Center gave me a partial refund because I did not have the time to go through the return process. The repairman at this store says that they're not constructed to be able to be repaired. All very successful and still in production. I think it's a consequence of brand confusion as the designs don't obviously deviate between the Chinese and German lines.
You can see this in China's involvement in Africa resources as well as at home manufacturing. Peut be is this a problem of shrinking, the nut or bridge? Hofner is still going strong, deep in the heart of Bavaria. In the past month, they removed the model from their website, but may very well have a couple knocking around the plant. I even thought it had to do with the manufacturing quality, because I didn't know this type of bass. We've gone through this before with Japan and then Korea.
We employ traditional methods together with cutting edge technology in order to produce world class instruments and set ourselves extremely high quality standards. Other manufacturers with at least as much brandname capital as Höfner, such as Gretsch, have also outsourced production of high-end archtops to Asia I own an excellent Japan-made Synchromatic G400 , without, however, having to reduce prices as much as Höfner has done. It is noticable when put up against the horizonal line of the bridge but it is drilled on the center on the bottom, so I guess it is made in error and not just bent. On one hand I'm seriously against them, but on the other, I'm very curious. Sheesh, I go to the beach for a few days…. Here's a less favorably priced one of the same model designated as German made as well.
After his half of the body can not make audible amplifier. This one has Schallers, but they typically come with vintage style strip tuners : They have done reissues of '50s and '60s Club 50 and Club 40 guitars, in natural as well as brunet finishes. What kind of proof do you want? Autenzio Says: Hi Nicolai, Got some good news. Question choice of micro, I am using the neck pickup ever. I have been in that boat I must admit. The strings are thereby reconciled. To buy and consume without moderation, and also take the case to go with it.
I've been out to the factory a couple of times - it's a very cool place and a beautiful part of the world. It's a good value for money, since it doesn't cost much but you can have fun with it. Here's my reissue of the late-'50s Club 50. I would like to stay in touch with you and let you know what the difference is, if I can get one. Fact is, some of the Chinese guitar-building factories are fully capable of making world-class instruments.
Manufactured in Asia, which means bad quality components assembled with care: The finish is good but you only get your money's worth, nothing more, the wood seems to be plywood, the tuners are really cheap. Höfner was established in 1887 by Karl Höfner who was followed by two of his sons and his grandaughter in developing the company into a world leading instrument manufacturer. Lightness is also an asset. They are better than some big-name archtops. They would together become the driving force for the company as Josef and Walter entered retirement in the 1970s. Had me hoodwinked till we got to the bottom of it, I definitely am no Hofner expert and don't have a lot of experience with them. This guitar will go down in the Hofner history books as being one the most unique guitar of the 21st century.
The negatives are that the design is slightly changed from the original in particular the way the neck is mounted to the body , but unless you are an expert or someone points these changes out, you would not notice. After that it offers a lot of sound possibilities. Postage can be very savage and on the cheaper guitars it can be more than the guitar. People like it when they buy stuff that was built on the same line that built the guitars of the icons. The entire neck is easily accessible, good design and weight. I'll try the German model when I have the chance. Hofner were quite conservative, but I think they had the edge craftsmanship-wise, at least that is the impression I've formed from having one semi-hollow Framus a 1962 sliding pickup Hollywood, which I sold and a 1959 Hofner Club 60, which I kept.
