The Hofner Contemporary Series Violin Bass is a contemporary replica of the bass that Paul McCartney still plays on stage today. Still featuring the original 1962 neck profile for guaranteed playability and classic tone. Constructed with a sustain block inside the body for modern, punchy, deep resonating bass sounds, and using the original Staple Top pickups, the Hofner HCT500/1 is affordable and couples authentic Hofner design with the latest manufacturing techniques.
Based on Paul McCartney's 1962 violin bass, this guitar replicates details of the original including the 'strip' machine heads, the slot-head screws on the hardware, and the 2-piece neck. These are authentic touches that connect the Hofner Violin Bass to an earlier time.
