Hofner Limited Edition 2012 Diamond Jubilee Violin Bass

This bass is a German handbuilt Hofner Limited Edition 2012 Diamond Jubilee Violin Bass model that is 49 of only 60 made. This bass is like the one that Paul McCartney played at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert in 2012. The bass is patterned after a 1962 Hofner 500/1 Violin Bass and it features a highly resonant lightweight fully bound violin shaped hollow body design with Flamed Maple back and sides and a Spruce top with a gorgeous Union Jack high gloss finish. The 30" short scale Flame Maple inset neck has a 22 fret Rosewood fingerboard with White dot position markers. The pickups are the passive Hofner "Staple" type and they give the bass an authentic "Paul McCartney/Beatles" tone. The bass is strung up with flatwound strings to give it the original classic tone of the 1960's.comes with a 125YEARS hofner book, Hofner Bullet® Aluminum Case, Certificate of Authenticity, Hofner leather strap
