Overview

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. Many players revere Hofner basses for their historical significance, as well as for their a
smooth, sweet sound and a playing ease that simply eludes most ordinary basses.

Because the original had become so scarce and expensive, popular demand compelled Hofner to re-create the Club Bass 500/2. The new Club Bass shares the feel, tone, and many features of the Vintage '63 but with a more traditional guitar body profile and a single cutaway.
