B056 1964-1966 Hofner 500/1 made in Germany. (not West Germany) 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."

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. logo lacquered decal, open axis tuners, 511 pickups, cream pearl control panel with teacup cream knobs.
