Circa 1969 Hofner 500/1 is in excellent condition and perfect playing order. This is it, ladies and gentlemen, the ever-famous "Beatle Bass". Other than the strap buttons that were changed and the pickguard that is missing, this beautifully baby is all original. The bar-blade pickups sound fantastic, they are extremely dynamic yet nice and powerful. The frets are in great condition with barely any playing wear. The 2-piece neck is a slim C profile and has a nut width of 1 5/8" that tapers out to 2" at the 12th fret. It's never had any repairs. There's no cracks anywhere, along with no dents, chips, or dings. The top has slight finish checking ranging across the whole top but mainly around the control plate. The sides also have some slight checking, as well as the back of the headstock. Weighs in on our digital scale at a whopping 4 lbs 7 ounces. Comes with the original hardshell case.
