A special vintage finish Violin Bass created by our master in the violin lacquer dept. Beautifully aged to look authentically vintage but with the advantage of a brand new bass. 

Very special and secret varnishes are used to achieve the remarkable aged finish.

The 63-RLC is inspired by the bass we made in 1963 for Paul McCartney and features an unbound 2 piece neck and 2 on a strip tuners.

Each bass is a unique instrument, no two are exactly alike as the ageing process is all done by hand.

All models are supplied with a pearloid pickguard (not mounted) and include a Höfner Vintage strap and case. 

Flag Handmade in Germany
