1962 Höfner 500/1 Violin Bass

 
 
 

The Hofner Violin Bass has become one of the most iconic musical instrument ever designed
thanks to its most famous user, Paul McCartney.
So strong is the association that the bass is also affectionately known as the “Beatle Bass”.

A great example of this classic bass, this original instrument is nearly identical to McCartney's
second bass and features the rare "diamond logo" pickups.

Complete with black Jakob Winter reissue case.
