NEW - In celebration of both the early days of the Höfner violin bass and the 50th anniversary of Master Luthier Dieter Fischer's joining Höfner, comes the 500/1 Vintage 58 Reissue Violin Bass. Each 500/1 Vintage 58 is a handmade limited edition version of the 1958 close pick-up space violin bass with oval control panel. Many players revere Höfner's Violin Bass as a legend because of its historical significance and its warm, woody, double-bass-like amplified tone.


Includes free shipping in the continental USA, and free expert guitar setup!
