If the left handed electric basses in this section look familiar, it's pretty safe to assume that you're a fan of a certain Liverpool '60s group who sported moptop haircuts. In fact, much of Hofner's popularity can be traced back to The Beatles' appearance on The Ed Sullivan show in 1964, when Paul McCartney could be seen playing their distinct left handed 500/1 bass. Since that time, the legendary rocker was spotted throughout his career with the same model, earning it the "Beatle Bass" nickname which still holds today.
Of course, you don't have to be after Paul's signature tone to appreciate the easy playability and beautiful craftsmanship of an electric bass from Hofner. The warm, round sound of these terrific instruments are ideal for everything from punk and garage rock to even reggae. Their short-scale design also makes them perfect for younger southpaws, and any aspiring rocker would feel comfortable with the Ignition Series Vintage Violin Left-Handed Bass in their hands. An affordable version of the famous Hofner violin bass, this model features a real spruce top, beautiful flamed maple back and sides, and a semi-hollow body with set neck. Topped off with a classic sunburst finish, the Ignition Series Vintage Violin Bass is a best seller for more than one reason.
Now, for those who want to be transported back to a time when albums like Please Please Me, A Hard Day's Night and Rubber Soul were topping charts around the world, the Vintage '62 Left-Handed Electric Bass Guitar is just the answer. This bass is a stunning tribute to the one specifically made for Paul back in the early '60s. With its hollow body and original Hofner slim neck profile for additional sustain and quick action, this work of art also comes with a Hofner Vintage strap and case (who says money can't buy you love?)
So go ahead and take your pick. Aside from leaving a mark in popular music history, Hofner has been a respected string-instrument company since 1887. In other words, you can bet that any one of the left-handed electric basses from this catalog will boast a high level of quality.
