NEW - Nearly a decade after the original Violin Bass had premiered at the Frankfort Music Fair, Hofner had arrived at the beautiful instrument you see re-created here in all of its glory. The Vintage '64 Violin Bass gives you the sound, style, and amazing action that set the original 1964 model apart from previous iterations. Gorgeous flame maple topped with spruce make this one beautiful instrument, and if you like warm and woody bass tone, then you can't do better that the pair of classic Hofner Staple humbuckers included in this Vintage '64 Violin Bass.
The thing that most sets the 1964 Hofner Violin Bass apart from previous models is its extremely comfortable and fast-playing 3-piece flame maple and beech neck. This neck offers you a much slimmer carve than that found on previous models, providing you with fast and more comfortable action. This Vintage '64 Violin Bass also includes the bound rosewood fretboard of the original 1964 model it's based on, giving you a delightfully smooth playing experience.
