Is it just my crappy eyesight, or is the action set way high near the neck pickup? I can't tell if the bridge is set to a higher than normal height.

Wow, sure is a beauty! What is the open market price on these... in other words, what do you think it'll go for?

I could never own one of these basses. I would break it. I play very hard.

I play super hard too but one of the things I love about having a Hofner is that when I play it, it forces me to approach the instrument differently!
