Has Paul McCartney style custom built pickups mounting ring

A special Vintage Violin Bass created by our master in the violin lacquer dept. Beautifully aged to look authentically vintage but with the advantage of a brand new bass.

Very special and secret varnishes are used to achieve the remarkable aged finish.

The 61-RLC is inspired by the bass made in 1961 for Paul McCartney and features an unbound 3 piece neck and single tuners.

Each bass is a unique instrument, no two are exactly alike as the ageing process is all done by hand.

include a Höfner Vintage strap and Hofner CGC-VB hard case.

Comes with Pickguard ( not mounted ) might need to be modified to be used ( photo )
