Hey folks, I currently own three ab1 basses and may sell one in order to fund a Hofner. It's a brand new honey amber burst flame top with tools and gig bag. This is Sheldon's new darker honey amber burst and it weighs about 7 1/2 lbs. Any interest?????? I live in Tampa fl. thanks! mitch

Not personally interested, but it might help if you gave your asking price.

I'd be curious to see what interest there may be. I'd sell it for alittle less than street price.

[quote="nm83396":2v8gmlko]Hey folks, I currently own three ab1 basses and may sell one in order to fund a Hofner. thanks! mitch[/quote:2v8gmlko] A Hofner? :? Have you ever owned one before? I've had a couple through the years, but I found them pretty limited as far tone and playability goes, IMNHO. If I was needing that vintage short-scale tone and vibe, I would probably consider a vintage Danelectro Longhorn bass instead. You'll save [i:2v8gmlko]a lot [/i:2v8gmlko]of money, and have a more playable and toneful instrument. I still have my Longhorn, but the Hofners are long-gone for a reason. BTW, Hofner is now offering solid colors, and other special finishes, but, man, they are high priced. So, how much for the AB?

I went by a local guitar shop today and what did they have for sale?? a used Hofner club bass. I forgot how toy like these basses are. Hofners are cool and a bit of a novilty, but definitly not for me. I may read the string thread and get some idea's for flats for one of my ab1 basses. The other two can keep the wonderful factory strings! thanks! mitch

Mark[/quote:2mukqlj1][/quote:2mukqlj1][/quote:2mukqlj1] You need the set called "super long scale". The silk on the B will barely reach the nut. In the string thread I think I described the sound of these on my old AB1 as 1000 tons of chocolate :-) . They are thicker gauge than the Dingwall set, but I never filed my nut and although the B sat pretty high, it never moved or buzzed on me.

I wish they would publish string lengths. Morris, do you think that I can assume the Super Long scale in the nickel rounds should also work? That would be the EXL170-5SL. I tend to like nickel rounds rather than flats as a compromise to the stainless steel. They also make their halfwounds in a superlong scale: ENR71-5SL - Regular Light. I would assume that all of these would have strings of the same length (and the B string on the nickels and the half-rounds are of slightly smaller diameter as well).

I think by inference, this answers my question. It would seem that given that this question (How do I determine which scale strings my bass requires?) is answered based only on the D'Addario scale length designation generically, without regard to the type of string, would indicate to me that the scale length indicator is constant across all string types. Answer: You cannot always tell which strings you need just by knowing the scale length of your bass. Some basses are strung through the body, or have tailpieces. The best way to figure out the correct D'Addario strings for sure is to: 1) Assuming your bass has strings on it, mark the lowest pitched string (while tuned to pitch, and on your bass) at the nut with a marker. 2) Remove the string. 3) Measure the distance from the inner edge of the ball end to the mark you just made. 4 ) Record this length, and refer to the following chart: Length String Scale Required Up to 32" D'Addario Short 32 to 34 D'Addario Medium 34 to 36 D'Addario Long 36 to 38 D'Addario Super Long link:[url:1puj5vks]http://www.daddario.com/DADFaqSolution.aspx?id=50130000000KEbEAAW[/url:1puj5vks]

Glad to see you are thinking about becoming a Dingwallaholic like the rest of us here! BTW, I still haven't gotten anything from FedEx on that compressor. What a pain!
