Product Description

In celebration of both the early days of the Höfner violin bass and the 50th anniversary of Master Luthier Dieter Fischer’s joining Höfner, comes the 500/1 Vintage 58 Reissue Violin Bass. Each 500/1 Vintage 58 is a handmade limited edition version of the 1958 close pick-up spacing. Many players revere Höfner’s Violin Bass as a legend because of its historical significance and its warm, woody, double-bass-like amplified tone.

Very slight B stock – small marks in the finish near the knobs.
