01-H500/1-63-RLC-0, HOFNER 1963-STYLE ‘RELIC’ FINISH BEATLE BASS, UNBOUND TWO PIECE NECK, TWO-ON-A-STRIP TUNERS, SPECIAL VARNISH, COMES WITH A PICKGUARD (NOT MOUNTED), LEATHER STRAP & VINTAGE STYLE H64/VB-R HARDCASE
Hofner 500/1 Vintage style Bass, Handmade in Germany in the Hofner Factory. Genuine & Authentic.
A special vintage finish Violin Bass created by Hofner’s master in the violin lacquer dept. Beautifully aged to look authentically vintage but with the advantage of a brand new bass. Very special and secret varnishes are used to achieve the remarkable aged finish.
The 63-RLC is inspired by the bass we made in 1963 for Paul McCartney and features an unbound 2 piece neck and 2 on a strip tuners.
Each bass is a unique instrument, no two are exactly alike as the ageing process is all done by hand.
All models are supplied with a pearloid pickguard (not mounted) and include a Höfner Vintage strap and H64/VB-R case.
