Handmade in Germany! The 61-RLC is inspired by the bass made in 1961 for Paul McCartney and features an unbound 3 piece neck and single tuners.
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. Each bass is a unique instrument, no two are exactly alike as the ageing process is all done by hand.
Supplied with a pearloid pickguard (not mounted) and include a Höfner Vintage strap and case.
