Here is an extremely clean example of the iconic Hofner 500/1 made famous by Paul McCartney.

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. There's a strap button positioned on the upper side of the heel and and extra hole on the underside of the heel if you wish to put it there. 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. Extremely light weighing only 4.3 lbs. Pot Codes - 250K 356 (1966) the last 6 standing for 1966.
