Höfner H500/1-63-AR-0 Violin Bass 'Artist' (Sunburst) 4-String Electric Bass

The Höfner H500/1-63-AR-0 Violin Bass 'Artist' (Sunburst) is a 4-String Electric Bass and the ideal Instrument for all Bassists who are looking for the typical sound of the Beat-Era and British Invasion. Based on the legendary '63 Violin Bass, this Electric Bass features a Lightweight Resonator Body with Spruce Top, which, in combination with the shorter 30" Scale Length, promises a Percussive Attack with a sonorous Bass Foundation. Together with the Slim Profile of the 2-Piece Maple Neck, the Short Scale Length also ensures smooth playing characteristics. 2x Höfner Staple Pick-Ups and the typical Höfner Circuitry ensure multi-faceted Vintage Sounds with aural development that skilfully capture every nuance of playing. A Höfner Ebony Fretted Bridge, classic Trapeze Tailpiece and "2-on-a-Strip" Tuners complete the H500/1-63-AR-0 Violin Bass 'Artist'.
