Product Description

The Höfner Club Bass was introduced in 1964 as an alternative to the famous Violin Bass model. It was aimed at bass players who wanted a slightly larger body but wanted the famous Höfner tone produced from the hollow body, set in neck and cantilevered fingerboard. This Gold Label model is built in exactly the same way as the original 60s models and is fitted with flatwound strings specifically designed for Höfner short scale 30″ basses. It is lightweight, beautifully balanced and perfect for long playing sessions without back and shoulder strain.

Gold Label instruments are small runs or even single pieces with special finishes, colours or components. They are specially prepared and finished by our master luthiers in the workshops of Höfner in Hagenau, Germany. Each piece comes with a Gold Label certificate of authenticity.

Founded in 1864, Hofner’s comprehensive range of guitars draws on the firms long-standing success making precision string instruments for musicians. The Beatles’ Sir Paul McCartney played a Hofner Violin Bass, and the company’s superb attention to detail and stylish design has continued to inspire both rock and jazz musicians to this day. Despite the numerous changes over 125 years the company is still strongly a family firm with strong values for customers, and for high quality, musical instruments.
