The flats on my newly aquirred Hofner 500/1 are very stiff and produce a "bright" sound that i did not expect to hear from a bass like this! The question: are the strings going to get "smoother" as i continue to play the instrument? I would be very happy if able to tune in that cool sound you hear on all the old beatles-recordings :)
