Hofner 1963 Reissue Violin Bass Vintage Aged Sunburst w/Vintage Case

Brand New
Serial #W0507H083

Description & Specs

From Hofner:  

A new and exceptional vintage violin bass model, beautifully aged for the authentic look of a vintage instrument, but with the advantage of a sound new bass.

To achieve the remarkably aged finish, our violin makers use secret paint recipes and working techniques.

The 63-RLC is inspired by the bass we made for Paul McCartney in 1963: with a non-edged 2-piece neck and strip tuners.

Every bass is a unique instrument, no two are exactly the same, because the aging process is done individually by hand.

All models are supplied with a pearloid pickguard (not assembled) and Höfner vintage belt and case.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
