: Hi everybody, I'm looking for a Beatle bass.I know that
: the Hofner is very expensive and I'm looking for other bass which
: can have the same shape and a similar sound?
: Someone told me about EKO, I have found also a PARKSON,
: What do you suggest?
Here's my two cents worth: I have a Univox Beatle bass. It is light weight, has a scrolled head, F-holes and in my opinion, much better looking than the Hofner. When I got my first one in '69, it retailed for $150. I got my second on ebay for $200. Univox made several models. One was all mahogony and overall very dark in color. The one I have is the traditional 3-color sunburst.
