Hofner 1964 Reissue 500/1 Violin Bass Sunburst w/Tweed Case Floor Model

This Hofner 1964 Reissue 500/1 Violin Bass is a floor model instrument.  This guitar has light play wear on the pickguard from in-store customer handling and use.

The 500/1 Violin Bass was first shown to the public at the Frankfurt Muiskmesse in 1956. It has been in continuous production ever since. Designed by Walter Höfner as an alternative to the upright double bass it fulfilled this aim and much more. It leapt to worldwide fame when Paul McCartney was seen playing one with The Beatles in the early 1960s. Today the 500/1 is offered in a number of models from the budget Ignition version through to the handmade German built re-issues and Gold label specials. Its short scale (30in) and ultra lightweight has found favor with many professionals over the years
