HOFNER ARTIST SERIES 500/1 VIOLIN BASS Handmade in Germany.

From Hofner, we have a top-quality, German-made bass at an excellent price. It is ideal for those seeking an authentic Violin Bass: artists, enthusiasts, Beatle bands and anyone who desires the unique tone of this world-famous instrument. This model is based on the 500/1 as made in 1963, with twin “Staple” pickups, 2-on-a-strip tuners, fully hollow body and slim unbound short-scale 2 piece neck. There is, of course, the renowned control panel, the pearloid scratch plate, and with the flame maple back and sides and a spruce top, it is authentic in every way. The hi-gloss poly finish ensures that this bass will take the knocks and bangs of life on the road. Fitted with flatwound strings the tone is all you would  expect of a traditional 500/1 bass, the great sound from the 1960s.

Supplied with a Höfner hardcase, H65/50 strap, certificate of authenticity, factory photos, cleaning cloth and stickers.
