1966 Hofner 500/1 in excellent condition. This is a very cool German-built Violin Bass. its a great player with an excellent warm and woody thump. It has a spruce top with Maple back and sides and a Rosewood fingerboard.. The electronics are in good working order and the staple pickups sound great. This Hofner has beautifully aged and fully intact white binding and 22 frets, plus a zero fret for smoother playing, improved intonation, and better sustain. (I suspect it's had a very old refret?) There's only a small number of dings / and tiny bits of wear. the back of body and neck are very clean. Its been fully set up by my technician with a straight neck and a smooth action.Strung with Black nylon flatwound strings (I believe they are Rotosound true bass) Extremely light weighing only 4.6 lbs. Pot Codes - 250K 266 (1966) the last 6 standing for 1966.
