Classic Hofner looks and sound for the die-hard Beatle fan.

The Hofner Limited Edition 1962 Ed Sullivan Show Electric Violin bass is based off of the legendary performance of The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show. That performance inspired so many musicians to pick up an instrument which is why Hofner decided to pay homage with this limited edition tribute.

It's based on the original 1962 Hofner model with a few special exceptions like gold hardware, an Ed Sullivan Show logo on the pickguard and on back of the headstock, and it's limited to a hand-numbered run of 64 instruments. You also get a signed copy of Andy Babiuk's Beatles Gear Book.

Includes hardshell case and Hofner leather strap.

    Comments about Hofner Limited Edition 1962 Ed Sullivan Show Electric Bass:

    Thank you Musicians friend for making this One Sweet Dream Come True!!!
    Only 64 of these Collectors edition limited hofners were made in Germany. I pre ordered this in January 2014 and the Certificate of Authenticity was hand Signed and Dated in Feb 2014 which means this baby was shipped out from Germany in Feb 2014. The shipping and packaging was SUPER !!. Double boxed with layers of foam in the boxes. The set up strings and action and electronics all PERFECT. I can't thank musicians friend enough. I plugged it in the amp and kicked off with early Beatle tunes and it sounds the exact same hollow body sound that we absolutely love. It stays in tune and no fret buzzes at all. Overall a quality product
