Well, yeah, it's not a 500/1 bass like a certain lefty bassist from Liverpool plays.

What we actually have here is a controller for the Beatles edition of PlayStation's "Rockband" game.

It simply was too cool to NOT take with me.

Some years ago I ordered a pair of bongos from an online-musicstore.When the postman arrived,he brought ,to my surprise, a real big package.Much too big for just a pair of bongos.So I opened the package and,besides my bongos, there was a bassguitar ! It was a new Höfner "Beatles Bass" (an exact copy of the old bass, but now made in china or indonesia etc ) ! Because I hadnt ordered the bass,I contacted the music-store - it seemed they had put the bass in a wrong package ! So i send it back to the store and received a 10 Euro reward - that was my Höfner-Bass for one day :)
(Unfortunately only some days later I had to pay 10 Euros to the police because of parking in the wrong place :) )
