A SHORT GUIDE TO USING THE HOFNER BASS CONTROL PANEL:

Bass On: Turns the Bridge pickup off.

Treble On:  Turns the Neck pickup off

Solo – Rhythm: Solo makes the Bass louder; Rhythm makes the Treble brighter

Volume Controls: to blend the volume of each pickup, best with the volume turned towards up;
Bass On does indeed make it Bassier because it is just the neck pickup with a Treble cut capacitor.

Treble On: Yields a bright tone, because it is just the Bridge pickup with a Bass cut capacitor

Rhythm/Solo Switch: Rhythm cuts the volume by 30% or subtle treble cut; Solo makes the Bass louder.

Volume: – best with volume in the up

Paul McCartney prefers to use the neck pickup, it is said.
