Bass Guitar Hofner Violin Bass 500/1 "ECO Bass"
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 500/1 ECO bass was born after extensive research to find a new material to replace the traditional Rosewood used for the fingerboard. We selected a composite material which offers better stability, greater durability and perfect playability. It also offers an exceptional tonal range adding to the overall famous sound of the Violin Bass . The body continues to use tradional woods; spruce for the top and flamed maple for back and sides. Acclaimed in the press as a major leap forward in guitar design this is the new generation bass from Höfner for those who want to look forward.
