1964 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 few months after the birth of Beatlemania, the Selmer London company started importing
the 500/1 in the UK and supplied them with an iconic tweed case.

A beautiful example of the classic Selmer bass, this bass is fully original and in stunning condition.
Comes complete with tweed case.
