  • Description

    The Contemporary Series version of the famous Violin bass by Hofner is the upgrade to the Icon series. The HCT-500/1 faithfully reproduces the look, feel and tone of the classic, German made violin bass from back in the early '60s.

    The HCT-500/1 features beautiful Flame Maple body with a Spruce top and hand carved solid Spruce sustain block inside the body of the bass to give you an in-depth, resonating bass tone with superior sustain. 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. The classic control panel features dual volume controls, on/off switches for the bass and treble, and a rhythm/solo switch that gives a your bass that extra boost, allowing you to really pushes your sound over the edge. Includes hardshell case.

      Comments about Hofner Hct5001l Ct Series Violin Left Handed 4 String Bass (Sunburst):

      I am in love with this bass! I bought it from a local store(I was origanally going to get the Icon but their supplier messed up and the store gave it to me for a very low price).But dont get me wrong it is soooo worth the price. I would only recommend that you buy some flats because it comes with roundwounds.
