Bass Guitar Hofner Violin Bass 500/1-62 Mersey

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 recongisable electric bass guitars in the music world in terms of both looks and sound.

The 'Mersey' bass is inspired by a bass made in August 1963 for Paul McCartney. Fully hollow body. Original Hofner slim neck profile for added sustain and playability. Also available in left-handed (L) version.

Including a Hofner Vintage strap and Hofner case.
