A classic Hofner hollowbody with legendary tone.

In 1956, Walter Hofner had an idea for an amplified semi-acoustic bass. When it was brought to life, his idea resulted in a bass with a warm, woody, double-bass-like amplified tone. Players love it for its playing ease and its tone--one of the smoothest, sweetest sounds in all of bassland.

Because the original became so scarce and expensive, popular demand compelled Hofner to re-create the Club Bass 500/2. Now this LTD version of the 500/2 offers the same instrument with changes that make it even closer to the original. The pickups have been repositioned to the original spacing for truer vintage tone and a hand-applied dark violin varnish gives it a more vintage vibe. Includes case.

  • hofner 599/2 club bass

    As reviewed by Dan Frye on 1/11/2008

    This is the most incredible sounding bass I have ever owned, its short scale neck, makes it one of the greatest most playable basses ever, there is also a fantastic range of tones with the hofner club bass, Its definately a bass every serious bassist should have in their collection.
