You are looking at a Hofner 500/1 Vintage '62 Violin Bass Electric Bass Guitar Sunburst, serial number P02263. This is the actual bass you will receive should you decide to purchase. (4 lbs, 14.3 oz.)

In 1956, Walter Hofner had an idea for an amplified semi-acoustic bass. When it was brought to life, his idea revolutionized popular music. The Hofner Violin Bass 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.

Many players revere Hofner's Violin Bass as a legend because of its historical significance and its warm, woody, double-bass-like amplified tone. The Hofner Violin Bass is a unique instrument with a smooth, sweet sound and a playing ease that simply eludes most ordinary basses.

Inspired by the bass made for Paul McCartney in August 1963, this Hofner ' 62 Violin Bass a fully hollow body crafted from a classic combination of spruce and flame maple. The "strip" machine heads, the slot-head screws on the hardware, and the two-piece neck are authentic touches that connect this instrument to an earlier time. The original slim Hofner neck profile provides exceptional sustain and superb playability. This Hofner 500/1 '62 Reissue Violin Bass is handcrafted in Germany, comes with the full protection of a hardshell case, and includes a Hofner Vintage strap.
