About This Listing


The 500/2 Club Bass was introduced in 1964 as an alternative to the increasingly popular 500/1 Violin Bass. It was aimed at players who wanted the unique Höfner bass sound but who didn't want to look like Paul McCartney! The body had been in production since 1954 but only as a guitar. It was a fairly simple production decision to put the Violin Bass neck into a Club body and create a new product.

Sound and Style

Many prefer the 500/2 Club Bass to the 500/1 Violin Bass as it offers a bigger body but produces almost identical tones - the legendary Höfner bottom end thump. With a fully hollow body and short scale (30") neck it is a light and easy bass to play

OK, enough on the PR...

I got this in 2015 (cheap), and it needed a lot of work done. I had a neck reset and fret job done. Put Pyramids on it (still on it). Had it polished up. I play it every December.

For being 54 years old, it is in really good shape (IMO). I tried to provide pics of anything showing its age. Some of the finish has areas where a strap must have been against the body. It can be felt and seen in the light. Kind of looks like duct tape residue, but it is in the finish.

Plays awesome. Low action.

The bridge pickup is out - needs re-wire.

Case not original, but is specific to Hofner Club.

Free shipping at my asking price.

Accepting offers, but include separate shipping in the offer.

I'll be glad to answer any questions.

Prefer continental US, but will ship to other places (must use offer) if you allow me time to research prices and requirements. Times are strange right now.
