Hofner 500/1 ’63-RLC Violin Bass (Vintage Finish) (Lefty)

Hofner_500_1_5001_63_1963_relic_Version_Paul_McCartney_Beatle_Bass_Replica_Lefty_Sunburst_2020_2NEW - A special vintage finish 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. The 63-RLC is inspired by the Hofner bass Paul McCartney still plays to this day, and features an unbound 2 piece neck and 2 on a strip tuners. Each bass is a unique instrument, no two are exactly alike as the aging process is all done by hand. All models are supplied with a pearloid pickguard and include a Höfner Vintage strap and case.
