Vintage 1968/69 Hofner 500/1 Bass "Beatle" Bass Guitar German Made
This beautiful vintage Hofner bass is a wonderful player with an ultra cool vintage vibe. The spruce top shows off some really eye-catching wide grain & the neck is super comfortable play, up & down the fretboard. Professionally set up & ready for action! Typical play wear for a 50-year old bass - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches, weather checking & some finish wear.
The neck has a rounded maple neck with nicely aged cream binding & black side-dots. Beautiful dark rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays. Frets are in great shape and the closed-back tuners are in good working condition. 1 5/8" nut width with zero fret; 30" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.
The Double-bound, violin-shaped body is the classic sunburst finish. Carved spruce top with nickel trapeze tailpiece & adjustable bridge.
Electronics: Hofner "blade" pickups with large black bezels. Dual volume controls with "tea cup" knobs. Rhythm/Solo, Bass & Treble switches all in good working condition.
Does not include a case or bag.
