About This Listing

Rock N Roll Vintage is the USA's largest Hofner dealer and we've bought and sold hundreds vintage violin basses over the years. This '65 is definitely the coolest vintage Beatle Bass we've had in a loooong time. The paint really tells the whole story: this one was loved and played A LOT. So yes, as with all Hofner's of this age, it needed some work to get back into fighting shape. The neck has been re-set and the fingerboards was planed and re-fretted so it plays great. The tuners were in bad shape so we've put on some reissue tuners along with a new bridge. It once had a strap button on the side of the neck so you can put one back on should you want to use a regular strap. Super rare original tweed case included.
