Several thoughts:

1. First and foremost, what a cool video. Thanks for posting.

2. I always wondered why there was such a price range for the different Hofner basses ($350-$3,000). Now I see.

3. The fret cutter (around 8:55 in the video) is mind-blowing. If one of those frets is even one millimeter off, the instrument will never play in tune. And that guy cranks them out like he's flipping burgers. Amazing.

4. For all its iconic status, it seems like not many professionals play the Hofner. Aside from Sir Paul, who else plays them?

Happy listening,
