1962 Hofner 500/3 Bass with diamond logo pickups, Blonde finish and a Tortoise shell guard. Serial 710. All round great condition, the headstock has a few minor dings, the body and the back of the neck are in excellent condition. There's also a really cool flame to the Maple. Later referred to as the Senator bass. It has a fuller tone than the Violin Bass having a much bigger body. This 500/3 has a natural or Blonde finish which is rarer than the darker burst model. The binding is intact, the frets are good and the electronics work as they should. The neck is straight and there is plenty of room in the truss rod. The tuners have been replaced. Other than that this bass is original. The bass is fully set up by my tech and has a great action and equally good tone.

The weight is 5.3 lbs. The serial: 710. Both pots date to 62. The case appears to be an original Selmer tweed. The neck dimensions are, width at nut: 1.651" at the 12th fret: 1.917" Depth at nut: 0.882" at the 12th: 1"
