The first Hofner Violin Bass was built in 1955- little did they know it would soon become an icon.
Paul McCartney used the 30" scale Violin bass from his 'Cavern' days to present.
This is an exceptional example- the flame here is beautiful.

Spruce top with beautiful flame maple back & sides.
This 500/1 has incredible warm natural resonance.
The Staple humbuckers bring everything from bridge position note articulation to big neck warmth.
Each pickup has its own on/off switch and volume control- allowing you to dial in your sound perfectly.
A Rhythm/Solo tone switch offers even more options.
There are a lot of classic tones in here.
The maple neck has a comfortable feel with plenty of meat for tone transfer.
This Hofner is beautiful- sunburst finish showing off the flame, multi-ply body binding, bound fingerboard, pearloid pickguard, control plate, and heel cap.
