 Paul Mccartney Jubilee Bass 


Hofner produced the 500/1 ‘Beatle Bass’ for many years, long before it had any association with The Beatles or Paul McCartney. Though it became an impractical design for stage use during the Stage Volume Wars, it’s kept a place in lower volume venues and as stage volumes drop to reasonable levels, is coming back into vogue. It’s a very comfortable, good sounding instrument.

Today we are fortunate to be viewing the Hofner Paul Mccartney Jubilee Bass, a rare and interesting model.

For Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, only 60 were made by Hofner and available in the USA. This Paul Mccartney Jubilee Bass featuring a maple neck with bound rosewood fingerboard, classic Hofner violin bass body, in the 1962 configuration as used by Paul McCartney during early Beatles tours. Carved spruce top, arched flame maple back, flame maple sides. This Paul Mccartney Jubilee Bass sports a custom Union Jack finish for the Queen’s 2012 Jubilee year. The top has the red white and blue Union Jack, while the sides, back and neck use a clear untinted finish showing off the whiteness of the maple.


Sir Paul McCartney played this Union Jack Bass at the Jubilee Concert in London on 4th June 2012. The concert was part of a week long celebrations in the UK to mark 60 years as the monarch for The Queen. Paul headlined the concert, coming on at the end to play three songs. On the final song, Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da, he switched from his regular Hofner bass to one specially made for the concert, this Paul Mccartney Jubilee Bass was finished with Union Jack on the top. The audience certainly appreciated the appearance of the bass right at the end of the concert. Later Paul was photographed with the Royal Family holding the bass.

Besides, Tom Petersson also has a Hofner Violin Bass Guitar in Union Jack finish, the bass that Tom Petersson has was finished by the Hofner Custom Shop in Chicago, which was set up by CMI. The painter who did the work is Kevin Jennings, and he has painted many other Hofner instruments, including the Paul Mccartney Jubilee Bass that was used by McCartney at the Jubilee celebration. The original version is finished in a transparent blue on the neck, rims and back, in addition to the flag on the front. The white areas on the flag are actually the natural finished body top contrasting with the red and blue lacquer. Note the "Cavern" spacing of the two Type 511B Staple pickups. Here are pictures to show you the differences. 

This Paul Mccartney Jubilee Bass plays very well and the lightness is a real treat! It offers those wanting to own one of the world's iconic guitars the chance to do so, this is a unique opportunity to own an incredibly rare Hofner Violin Bass Guitar! Both versions as above are Available in our custom shop!

Hi can you tell me the cost of the jubillee hofner bass please. Is it a 500/1 model?
The one maccartney had, had light wood on back and sides, unlike the blue of the previous union jack run.
Its the jubillee one im after. Do you have any in stock, or are they all made custom?
