1960 Hofner 500/5 Bass
Selmer started importing Höfner's 500/5 bass in late 1958
and it instantly became the best bass available at the time in the UK.
Many beat combos played one but this beautiful instrument is forever associated with
The Beatles' original bass player, Stuart Sutcliffe.
This rare 1960 bass is in great original condition,
blonde 500/5s with toaster pickups are an extremely rare find.
