1963 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 1963 500/5 features staple top humbuckers and beautifully flamed top, back and sides.
It is in near perfect original condition and is supplied with a padded gig bag.
