HÖFNER HCT-500/1-SB Contemporary Sunburst

The Hofner 500/1 Violin Bass 4-String Semi Acoustic Bass Guitar in Sunburst was first released in 1956 and, thanks to a range of high profile users, has become one of the most recognisable bass guitars around.

The Hofner 500/1 Violin Bass features a completely hollow body that consists of a Flame Maple back and sides that are joined by a Spruce top, a combination that hasn’t changed since its first inception and is one of the main factors in its signature sound.  The body is joined by a slim profile short scale Flame Maple/Beech/Flame Maple neck that is topped with a 22-fret Rosewood fingerboard with white pearl dot inlays.

The body of the Hofner 500/1 Violin Bass is fitted with a pair of Hofner Staple pickups, another major contributing factor to the signature Violin Bass sound.  These are accompanied by a control circuit that consists of dual volume controls, on/off switches for both pickups and a rhythm/solo circuit select switch.  This setup allows for the classic Violin Bass tone to be easily dialled in, while also being versatile enough to produce a range of more modern tones.

The Hofner 500/1 Violin Bass guitar also comes equipped with an Ebony bridge, a Hofner trapeze tailpiece and a set of single Nickel tuners.
