Hofner 500/2 Club Bass (1966)


Just in on consignment, this killer 1966 Hofner 500/2 Club Bass! We can't lie, we love a cool bass and let's face it, we're suckers for a bass that has Hofner on the headstock! Easy to see why, right? 

The 500/2 Club Bass - the hollow-body bass that every other bass wants to be. Sounds just like the violin bass made famous by Paul McCartney, but without the Beatles stereotype that accompanies that iconic model. The short scale and hollow body make this 500/2 super comfortable to play, and like its sibling 500/1 model, this 500/2 Club Bass has many of the same appointments like staple-pole pickups, tea cup knobs, and it even has the pickguard.

Super clean two-tone sunburst finish and in completely original condition, except for the added strap button.

Perfect for bass players looking to add that "McCartney sound" to their projects, or for guitar players looking to pick up their first bass! Priced with hardshell case. 

On consignment, no trades please.
