Hofner '62 500/1 Violin Bass 2018 Sunburst


Moe's Guitars, Our philosophy: If we wouldn't play it, we wouldn't sell it; it's that simple.

We are an Official Hofner Dealer.

All photographs are of the instrument you will be receiving. This instrument is Brand New B Stock for the following reasons.

The binding has a 1/32 " gap as you can see in photo 3 on the side. Due to the shrinkage Hofner either under buffed or over buffed the white binding, which is evident on at about 10 inches in distance. You have to be looking for it to find it. The same gap is evident on the other side.

The instrument is sold cosmetically AS IS, but under full factory warranty otherwise.

A special design inspired by the legend himself, Paul McCartney.

This special version was inspired by a bass made in August 1963 for Paul McCartney. It has a fully hollow body and original Hofner slim neck profile for added sustain and playability.

Ships in the Hofner Vintage strap and Hofner case.
