OVERVIEW

A re-creation of the bass that buoyed The Beatles.

Based on Paul McCartney's 1962 Violin Bass, the 500/1 Vintage '62 Electric Bass Guitar has delighted Hofner aficionados by replicating details of the original. For example, the "strip" machine heads, the slot-head screws on the hardware, and the 2-piece neck are authentic details that connect this instrument to an earlier time. In the Vintage '62, Hofner has created an authentic replica of Paul's bass historically accurate enough to satisfy even the most demanding Beatles fan.
