Instrument Categories: , , , , , ,

Hofner has just introduced the Contemporary Series including the Hofner HCT500 1 SB ,  which positions itself between the German made original models and the Icon Series entry level instruments!

The new Höfner HCT500 1 SB Violin Bass is made in China, but utilizes the original German made Höfner HS11B ‘Staple-Top’ pick-ups with a control panel that includes 2 volume controls, 2 circuit breakers and Rhythm/Solo switches for volume Boost … like the original issues!

We have upgraded this particular Hofner HCT500 1 SB bass with original “tea cup” knobs and Hofner short scale flatwound strings to make it even more authentic!

Available in left handed!
