Hofner 500/1 (1967)

Hofner 500/1 Violin Bass (1968-70) Germany



An iconic bass from the sixties and pop, the Hofner 500/1 has a unique grain and look. This 1967 model is in relatively fair condition for its age. It still has many traces, the bridge is new and it was planned by Cédric Bon. Revised and completely playable, it feels great and easy and and delivers the vintage tone they are liked for.
