Information

Brand New with Warranty. We are an authorized Hofner Dealer.

The Hofner 500/1 violin bass was designed by Walter Hofner and launched at the Frankfurt Music Messe in 1956. It has since gone on to become one of the most recognizable electric bass guitars in the music world in terms of both looks and sound. 

The Hofner 500/1 model has the slim profile neck. White celluloid neck binding distinguishes it from the other German-made Hofner violin basses. The light weight of the fully hollow body will be appreciated after a long night’s playing.

 

How Does It Play?

We give a thorough setup to every instrument that comes through our shop. From truss rod to nut slots, pickup heights to saddle heights, you can rest assured we have this one dialed in. We also do a thorough inspection and check of all electronics and hardware to make sure nothing slips by!

 

This model ships with Vintage style Hofner hard case!
