This is the left handed version of the very brilliant 500/1 Contemporary Series Hofner Violin bass. They don't come much more iconic than this, the Hofner 'Violin' Bass was decidedly and permanently embossed into our psychie by a certain bass player in a popular Liverpool beat band. The legend lives on with the Contemporary series HCT Hofner Violin bass, aka the 500/1. We are delighted to be in regular supply of these fantastic basses, and even more delighted to report that they are just as good as they ever were. It's a sweet tone, amazingly focused and solid, you know like that sound you heard on all those early records by that popular Liverpool beat band, filling out the sound and looking ultra cool the whole time. The truth be told, these were affordable basses in the early 60s, more so than the USA instruments, but you'll be pleased to hear that the contemporary series Hofners still come in at nearly a quarter of the cost of a modern day standard USA Fender bass. Please do contact us for availability.
