Hofner 500/1 '63 Reissue 'Relic' Violin Bass (63-RLC)

£2699.00 Out of Stock - Available to preorder

Only made to order, each one of these stunning instruments has a unique finish created by the 'Master' in the Hofner lacquer department. 

Some very special and 'secret' varnishes are used to achieve the remarkable aged finish and as a result no two instruments are alike. 

Like the original bass made for Paul McCartney back in '63, it features an unbound 2 piece neck, 2 on a strip tuners and the classic staple pickups. The sound is so authentic it will make you deep dive right into to those Macca bass lines that we all know and love...

A true collectors piece!

Supplied with Hofner Case, documentation and our 3 year warranty.
