The Hofner Club Bass is inspired by the original Hofner 1965 model.  Introduced as an alternative to the Violin Bass, it targeted players that wanted the unique and famous sound of a Hofner bass but without looking like the most famous bass player of the era.  To this day, it's built in the same way, using the same components and providing the same classic sound.  Itdelivers a true vintage sound with full deep bass tones from its fully hollow body and Staple pickups.  

This model is based on the original 1962 Hofner model, with the fully hollow body and original '62 neck profile for added sustain and playability.  The flame maple top back & sides provide excellent natural acoustic resonance, and of course gives this bass an amazing appearance.  It's finished in a gorgeous classic sunburst finish.  The 3-piece flame maple (with beech) neck is super comfortable.

Loaded with Hofner Staple humbuckers, it delivers the classic tone you'd expect.   Warm, woody and almost acoustic sounding, this is the sound that put Hofner on the map.  It comes with a vintage-style Hofner metal "bullet" case and all of the vintage vibe you could ever ask for!
