Bummer, so it's not going to arrive any time soon then.  Ah well, it'll give you something to look forward to at least.  ;)

It's arrived!

It's lovely. Did I mention I really like Hohner basses ?  ;D

Looks like it's hardly been played. Has that wonderful deep and bright but not trebly tone that floats my boat.

I have had my Hohner B Bass V for a few days now, and spent a few hours playing it.

The local music emporium didn't have any 5 string bass sets, so I am sticking with the old strings that were on it until my next Thomann order. Doesn't seem to stop it sounding good though.

I actually had to RAISE the action to get it to match my other Hohners, and I like the action at the dusty end quite low.

The quality of the instrument is easy to see even at a casual glance, but as an example of attention to detail the back plate, which has to be removed to access the battery, is secured by 5 screws that locate into brass captive star nuts - not into bare wood.

The dink in the headstock disclosed by the seller is much less evident than it was in the pictures, and so I shall not touch it.

If any of you are bass players out there, try to get hold of one of these classics while you can. I really cannot fathom why Hohner stopped making their basses.
