HÖFNER HCT-500/8-DC Verythin Long Scale Bass Dark Cherry Sunburst

Semi-Hollow E-Bass with 34" scale length and two Humbucker pickups

The Höfner HCT-500/8-DC Verythin CT Bass Guitar Dark Cherry Sunburst is a 4-string model featuring a maple body, a maple/beech/maple neck, a rosewood fretboard, and a dark cherry sunburst finish. This is the long scale (34") version of the famous Höfner Verythin 500/7 short scale bass, which was created for those users who want a long scale neck with the same slim body and light weight of the Verythin.

The thin body at 1.25" thick still delivers a full resonating bass sound that easily cuts through the band. The all maple body is fitted with two Höfner full size humbucker pickups that have a real punch whilst producing good highs and terrific lows. Full control is enabled via two volume and two tone controls.
