Hofner Vintage '62 Violin Electric Bass Guitar

Hofner

A special design inspired by the legend himself, Paul McCartney.


The Hofner H500/1-62-0 violin bass was designed by Walter Hofner and launched at the Frankfurt Music Messe in 1956. It has since gone on to become one of the most recognizable electric bass guitars in the music world in terms of both looks and sound.

This special version was inspired by a bass made in August 1963 for Paul McCartney. It has a fully hollow body and original Hofner slim neck profile for added sustain and playability. Also available in left-handed (L) version.

Includes a Hofner Vintage strap and Hofner case.
