About This Listing

1960s Hofner 500/2 Club Bass with Hardshell Case - Sunburst
Up for sale is a vintage Made in West Germany Hofner 500/2 bass. Though the bass has seen its better days, the Hofner 500/2 is in great players' condition. The bass exhibits cosmetic wear such as a few indentations, light corrosion on the hardware, and the type of checking that occurs on this model, it is NOT cracking in the wood. The bass is missing its serial number sticker. It's most likely that the glue dried up causing the sticker to fall off but the original owner had this bass since the 70s. Electronically, the bass is perfect and the original pickups deliver a nice warm, well-rounded sound. Our in house Luthier gave this bass a fresh set up and installed flat wounds on it for even smoother playability and tone. The bass is ready to rock right out of its original hardshell case which comes included in the sale.
Though Höfner was mostly known for its 500/1 “violin” body style, this bass guitar features the same short scale length and deep, warm bass tones in a more guitarlike design with a single cutaway, where part of the upper body is sculpted away from the neck to improve access to the upper frets.
