If you think of a Hofner bass, you most likely think of Paul McCartney and the Beatles. But Hofner actually made a large number of solid and semi acoustic bass guitars throughout the 1950s and 1960s. The semis are definitely better known, but with Hofner's decades of violin manufacture, this is hardly surprising. Hofner semi acoustic basses do have a very distinctive sound and feel to them as they are played; and this in turn affects what is played.
