The Hofner Contemporary series Violin Bass is a contemporary replica of the bass that Paul McCartney still plays on stage today. 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 Hofner Staple-Top pickups, the Hofner HCT500/1 is affordable and couples an authentic Hofner design with the latest manufacturing techniques.
Based on Paul McCartneys 1962 violin bass, the HCT500/1 replicates details of the original including the 'strip' machine heads, slot head screws on hardware and 2 piece neck. These are authentic touches that connect the Hofner Violin Bass to an earlier time.
Comes bundled with a Genuine Hofner Hard Case
