Handmade in Germany.
The Hofner 500/1 left-handed violin bass was designed by Walter Hofner and launched at the Frankfurt Music Messe in 1956. It has since gone on to become one of the most recognisable electric bass guitars in the music world in terms of both looks and sound.
The Hofner 500/1 Vintage '64 model has the slim profile neck. White celluloid neck binding distinguishes the V64 from the other German-made Hofner violin basses. The light weight of the fully hollow body will be appreciated after a long nights playing. Includes a Hofner case.

Comments about Hofner H500/1-64L-O Vintage '64 Left-Handed Violin Electric Bass:
The fit and finish on this is excellent. Everyone will have to judge for themselves whether the craftsmanship and upgraded harware is "worth" the difference in price from the lower priced knockoffs (including those made by Hofner.) But I'm happy I made my purchase.
I like the fat hollow body sound. It's a different sound for me and fits in well with some of the folk/country stuff I've been playing lately.
It's nice having a small, lightweight instrument as an alternative to the p-bass.
