Violin Bass - 'Mersey'   H500/1-62-0

Handmade at Höfner, Germany. Reissue of a bass made for Paul McCartney in 1963.

Flag Handmade in Germany

The Hofner 500/1 violin bass was designed by Walter Hofner and launched at the Frankfurt Music Messe in 1956. It has since gone on to become one of the most recognisable electric bass guitars in the music world in terms of both looks and sound.

The 'Mersey' bass is inspired by a bass made in August 1963 for Paul McCartney. Two piece neck, two-on-a-strip tuners and unbound neck. Fully hollow body. Original '63 Hofner neck profile. Fitted with flatwound strings. For the fully authentic look and sound of the early 1960s this is the bass.

Also available in left-handed (L) version.

Including a Hofner Vintage strap and Hofner case.

Please try the TonePedia to hear the bass. You can select which pickups and playing style. You can also select other models to hear and compare.
