❌SOLD❌ Hofner Cavern Bass LH 500/1 1961 Reissue Sunburst, 2015

Here’s something a little different – a Hofner Cavern Bass LH, the left handed version of the classic 500/1 violin bass! The Hofner Cavern bass model 500/1 appeared in 1961, though that was not its name – from its first appearance at the 1956 Frankfurt Musikmesse, it was known simply as the Violin Bass. The bass earned its ‘Cavern’ moniker through frequent use in the Liverpool Cavern Club by a young bassist named Paul McCartney in The Beatles.
