The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Hofner 500/2 Club Bass

Based on the Club guitar, the Hofner 500/2 Club Bass was introduced in 1965 and built to 1970. It was never as popular as its cousin the 500/1 violin or ‘Beatle Bass’, but its more traditional single cutaway guitar shape perhaps works a bit better without a strap.

Shown here is a new Club Bass in right handed with antique brown sunburst and nickel plated hardware. The top is spruce, and the sides and back are flamed maple. The neck is also flame maple with a beech insert and rosewood fingerboard, with a scale length of 30 inches(760mm) and a nut width of 42mm.

These basses are really fun to play. Strung as stock with Hofner H1133B flatwounds, they are very responsive and have a pleasantly thick tone.

Serial Number: Varies as new; this example is Q05085, built during 2014 at Schönbach, Germany.

Pricing: $3,900.00 Canadian with rectangular silver hardshell case
