Sunburst Electric Bass Guitar
The Höfner Bass is based on the Hofner Violin bass guitars from the 1970s. Just like the real thing, it has a hollow body resonance. Typical of all violin basses are the classic control panel with 2 volume controls and two ‘Staple-Top’ pickups. The perfect bass for beginners who want to have an easily recordable Bass and the Violin Hofner B Bass Hi Series bass sound for little money.

Hofner Club Bass 60’s $925.00)
old hofner club bass. been through alot, but it rules. as solid as any old hofner bass you are going to find.
rewound pickups(most need rewinds as they used very thin winding wire)
new bridge(rosewood hofner remake) had an all wood top made.sounds good(i have the original top).
has nice hofner flatwounds.
older grover tuners(a much better quality than the originals).
wood plate, in the picture, was put on the back to keep the neck set. they all have a tendancy to loosen up.
i had a couple plates made that surround the pickups about an inch on all sides. previous owner had cut out a larger hole for different pickups. looks good.
needs a cover for the truss rod adjustment hole and the black pickup surrounds are worn out. you can buy exact reproductions. they were cheap in the first place and cheap now.
its really fun to play and has a sound you wont find anywhere else.
