The 500/1 Contemporary version of the Hofner Violin Bass Guitar offers those wanting to own one of the World’s iconic guitars the chance to do so at a very attractive price. Recreating the style of the 1964 version, the Contemporary features a sustain block inside the body to give modern, deep-resonating bass sounds while still retaining the original Hofner Beatles bass sound. With a short scale of 30″ and the small violin bass body it is one of greatest electric bass guitars ever made. Hofner Violin Bass – CT – sunburst (HCT-500/1-SB)
