Overview

The Hofner H500/1 Vintage 1964 Violin Electric Bass Guitar has a slimmer neck profile than previous year models. White celluloid neck binding also distinguishes the V64 from the other German made violin basses. The light weight of the fully hollow body will be appreciated after a long night's playing. Includes Hofner case.

In 1956, Walter Hofner had an idea for a violin shaped semi-acoustic bass. Launched at that years Frankfurt Music Show, his idea revolutionized popular music and with continuous production from 1956 this bass is one of the few guitars available today that can trace it's origins back to the very beginning of rock 'n' roll.

Many players revere Hofner's Violin Bass as a legend because of its historical significance and its warm, woody, double-bass-like amplified tone. For a detailed chronology of the Violin Bass' role in the British Invasion, check out Backbeat Books Beatles Gear: All The Fab Four's Instruments From Stage To Studio (SKU#H64162). The Hofner Violin Bass is a unique instrument with a smooth, sweet sound and a playing ease that simply eludes most ordinary basses.

Includes case.
