Click any picture for supersize view!

An accurate reproduction of a 62 Beatle bass! A wonderful tribute to McCartney's most famous Beatlemania bass. Top notch quality. Made in Germany, Hofner's old world violin craftsmanship is evident. The back and sides are made of gorgeous flame maple while the top is selected German spruce. The 30 inch scale maple neck features a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. Dual Staple pole pickups deliver killer tone. Strip tuners, a brass tailpiece and floating bridge keep it rock solid. The finish is a gorgeous antique brown sunburst. An iconic instrument!

This bass plays and sounds great. The neck is good, the frets are fine and the action is good. The pickups sound nice. Everything works as it should. This is a nice used bass. It shows light to moderate pick and clearcoat scratches, some hardware corrosion and a few minor indents. It's missing its pickguard bracket but I have one on the way from Hofner. Still a nice looking bass. Comes in original hardshell case.

Hofners are hard to find, especially on the used market. A new one will cost you $2199 in the superstores. Here's a nice used one that will save you some cash.
