I'm playing a 1968 Hofner 459 TZ Beatle Violin Guitar that has built in Fuzz and Treble booster effects. I expected it to sound like the more famous Viola basses that often have a dark muffled tone and a limited dynamic range. The guitar is nothing like the bass though to me. Wonderful big balanced and dynamic tone. I'm playing it through a 2019 Marshall SV20H Studio Vintage head and a 1971 Marshall model 1982B 4x12 cab with Celestion Pulsonic G12H30 55Hz Greenbacks.
