Hofner_Vintage_62_Violin_Bass_Beatle_Bass_Paul_McCartney_Andy_Babiuks_Fab_GearNEW - Paul McCartney first picked up a Hofner 500/1 Violin Bass in 1961, and by 1962 the Fab Four’s bass player was fast on his way to turning this instrument into a staple of early rock. This Vintage ’62 Violin Bass gives you the same amazing experience McCartney enjoyed when he first received his favorite Hofner, providing you with timeless sound, style, and playing comfort. Between its breathtaking flame maple and spruce construction and its classic Hofner Staple humbuckers, this Vintage ’62 Violin Bass delivers the warm, woody, and vibrant sound that held down the back beat of the golden age of rock and roll.
