1970 Hofner 500/1 in very good condition. All original with the exception of the case. 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 bar style pickups sound great. This Hofner shows some checking and quite a few nicks and dings to the body finish.The back of body and neck are relatively clean. This bass has fully intact white binding on the body and neck. It has 22 frets, plus a zero fret for smoother playing, improved intonation, and better sustain.

Its been fully set up by my technician with a straight neck and a smooth action.
