The 30'' scale of the set, 3-piece Maple/Beech/Maple neck combined with 22 frets and Rosewood fingerboard featured on the HCT-500/1 give this bass it's incredible feel and playability. Housing original Höfner (German made) Staple-Top pick-ups, the HCT-500 is sure to give you that highly sought-after vintage tone.
