The Hohner Professional series was an entry-level bass series back in the 1970s & 1980s. It came in a number of configurations, including a P-bass with a P/J pickup arrangement (very common) and a few more modern designs. I couldn't tell you what it is worth.

also it seems to be missing a pot i need to know what it for and how to hook it back up when i replace them its the top pot on a strat it would be the volume nob but on this bass the volume nob is on the bottom

any serial numbers perchance? Also there is some website that has wiring diagrams for older basses and guitars. I'll see if I can dig it up later and post it up here.

^This, plus they did sell them on into the 90's. They were much better basses (and guitars) than their price suggested, but at the end of the day, they ain't worth much. Apart from one or two models, they're perennial 50 quid/bucks in a second hand shop material.

I suspected as much re: the value. The only famous Hohner I know of is their Telecaster copy. The artist who can't make up his mind whether his name is Prince swears by one of those. Other than that, Hohner is best known for making harmonicas. The TS's bass is probably a serviceable instrument, though if it is missing a tone pot then it may have seen some heavy use.
