Body: Hollow, spruce top with maple back and sides

Neck: Maple neck with a skinny “D” profile, 1 9/16” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 7.25” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Open-back tuners, two pickups (rated at 8.2 kOhms in the neck and 7.9 k in the bridge), two-way treble on/off switch, two-way bass on/off switch, two-way rhythm/solo switch, independent volume controls.

Cosmetic Condition: This is one well-cared for Hofner! The top has its fair share of finish swirling, and a few small dings, but otherwise is holding up incredibly well. The back and sides are are just as clean, with just a bit of finish wear along the neck pocket binding. The neck and headstock are nice and smooth, with just a very small amount of edge wear along the crown of the headstock. You can’t buy me love, but this bass would be very close!

Playability: The strings are set up nicely, play great, and ring out clearly across the board. The bridge is fully lowered.

Modifications/Repairs: None
