Description

 

Hofner H500/1-CT Contemporary Series Violin Bass Guitar

 

The best-selling Hofner H500/1-CT, black, contemporary version of the Hofner Violin Bass Guitar, offers those wanting to own one of the World's iconic guitars the chance to do so at a very attractive price.

 

A year after celebrating the 50th anniversary of Walter Hofner's original violin bass, made famous by a certain Beatle who shall remain nameless, they have decided to produce a contemporary version. It has a vintage look that will produce many "oohs", and an internal sustain block that creates a more modern, deep-resonating sound that will produce many "aahs." It's the kind of bass guitar people love to see, play, and hear. 


Aesthetically, this 
Hofner 500/1-CT model features a maple-beech-maple set neck with rosewood fretboard accentuated by mother-of-pearl dot inlays, the signature Hofner violin bass headstock, a brass trapeze tailpiece, and glossy spruce top with glossy flamed maple back and sides. An ebony bridge with movable metal saddles maintains intonation and string spacing. With a short scale of 30" and the small violin bass body the Hofner H500/1-CT Contemporary is one of greatest electric bass guitars ever made. The nickel-plated hardware and floating celluloid pearl pickguard give it an extra little pop for the eyes.

 

On the electronics side, you're working with two Hofner 511B 'Staple' humbucking pickups, as well as a control panel with 2 volume controls, 2 on/off switches, and a rhythm/solo switch for volume boost. The Hofner H500/1-CT's overall sound is warm like the original model, but with a little more sonic kick for a more "now" sound.


A classic with modern refinements.
