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”.

This stunning instrument has identical specifications to McCartney's second bass:
staple top pickups, two piece neck, strip tuners, long tailpiece, flamed back and offset jack socket.

Complete with original Selmer tweed case and leather strap.
