1960 Hofner 500/3 Bass

1960 Hofner 500/3 Bass

Selmer started importing Höfner's 500/3 bass in 1960 to extend their electric bass range,
it is a single pickup version of the 500/5 with a slightly narrower body.

This rare Blonde 1960 bass is in simply stunning, all original condition.
It is one of the few 500/3 basses fitted with a Toaster Pick-Up.

A true collector's piece with beautifully figured top, back and sides,
it is the cleanest Hofner instrument we have had in over 30 years.
Complete with its rare original hard case.
