OVERVIEW

An uptown alternative violin-style bass.

Although it shares the violin body shape and body woods, and pickups, the Deluxe is a distinct departure from the Vintage models with a one-piece European maple neck, ebony fretboard, gold-plated hardware, and diamond-shaped mother-of-pearl headstock inlays. A dark, full-body binding that contrasts with the lighter woods of the body is another of the details that sets the Deluxe apart. Responsive and light in weight, it is truly a pleasure to play.

FEATURES
  • Selected German spruce top, back and sides of selected flamed maple
  • 1-piece maple neck
  • Ebony fretboard, 22 frets
  • Abalone double dots
  • Machine heads: Hofner 61/73B (4 individual)
  • Hofner 72/20B ebony bridge with movable metal saddles for perfect intonation and string spacing
  • Hofner 62/30 trapeze tailpiece, brass
  • Hofner 65/36-B floating celluloid pickguard, black
  • 2 Hofner 511B "Staple" humbucking pickups
  • Hofner A2-B: Control panel with 2 volume controls, 2 on/off switches, rhythm/solo switch for volume boost
  • Gold-plated hardware
  • Full body binding
  • Natural finish

Play a fancier bass than Paul. Order the Deluxe today.

retro rock

Comments about Hofner 5000/1 Deluxe 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

I have had mine for several years and still enjoy playing it. We paly a lot of music from the sixties, so both the sound and the look fit our style. The light weight makes a four hour gig a lot easier as well. Whether you collect it or use it, it is a special instrument and generates a lot of conversatins with both fellow musicians and fans.

Smooth, excellent but pricey

Comments about Hofner 5000/1 Deluxe 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

I recently began playing again after some fifteen years off and bought a jay turser jtb-2b/n short scale beatle bass...had it for a year and then bought the real thing. the hofner is a fine instrument, like going from a chevy to a bmw. sounds great through a vox t-60 amp. If you have the means, I highly recommend it.
