Semi-acoustic construction with short scale.

For the compact body of the Violin Bass CT Lefthand, Höfner naturally relies on a laminated spruce top combined with laminated curly maple back and sides. In combination with the shorter 30" scale length, the practical E-Bass accordingly delivers a surprisingly full vintage tone with a deep bass foundation that doesn't tend to boom or feedback even at high volumes thanks to the solid centre block. The set maple-beech neck is comfortable to play thanks to the slim C-profile.

HÖFNER HCT-500/1L-BK Violin Bass CT Black Lefthand FULL
With the Höfner Contemporary Violin Bass, the traditional company from Baiersdorf complements the popular Contemporary series with a subtly modified interpretation of the legendary violin bass for left-handers, which shaped the sound of the Beat era and British invasion.

Staple pickups with typical Höfner circuitry.

The Höfner Violin Bass CT with two authentically reproduced Höfner staple pickups elicits first-class vintage sounds of the beat era from the bass amplifier, which with deep basses and percussive character form the perfect foundation for the band sound. The pickups are naturally controlled by the typical passive Höfner circuitry with two volume controls, solo rhythm switch as well as bass-on and treble-on switches. Last but not least, authentic vintage-style hardware consisting of a trapeze tailpiece, the Höfner Fretted Bridge with compensated string rests and precise vintage tuners complete the Violin Bass in Black for left-handers by Höfner.
