Overview

Thanks to Paul McCartney and the Beatles, the Hofner 500/1 Violin Bass shot to stardom and has since become a legendary instrument -- it's even been called the "Beatles Bass." First produced in the late '50s by the German company Hofner and then distributed to the U.K., the 500/1 has been in production until today, its unique, violin-like body shape inspiring the design of many others. Its semi-hollow body and hot, blade-style pickups are just a few of the parts that make up the singular Hofner 500/1 Violin Bass.
