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.

OK, I know it's rude to brag, but I have just completed my new, and
probably last ever bass rig.I bought two 4x10 Kustom cabs and a second hand Ampeg Portaflex 500. Oh my, but it sounds good! Just waiting for Santa to bring me a new Boss multi effects pedal to replace my old Digitech (which is still mostly running well, with the occasional glitch). Then roll on Worfstock 2019.

Congrats, H, and hoping Santa comes through for you.  As Mick said, look forward to hearing more about it...
