A truly beautiful German Made instrument. The very top of the line! A 2006 Mint Hofner Violin 500/2 Club Bass Guitar with the original Flight Style Hardshell Case and included Hang Tag!
This was puchased here in Des Moines and was promptly put away, not only in the Flight Case, but kept in the original shipping box with the original shipping supplies from the original manufacture. See pics 15 and 16 …I was happy to get this one. I have had Hofner Basses in the past, but never this high end model. This Bass is fantastic. The Sunburst finished woods are just beautiful and it plays and sounds as good as it looks…
Here is some info I found on the net regarding these cool bass guitars.
A re-creation of the revered original.
In 1956, Walter Hofner had an idea for an amplified semi-acoustic bass. When it was brought to life, his idea resulted in a bass with a warm, woody, double-bass-like amplified tone. Many players revere Hofner basses for their historical significance as well as for their smooth, sweet sound and playing ease that eludes most ordinary basses.
Because the original bass guitar had become so scarce and expensive, popular demand compelled Hofner to re-create the Club Bass 500/2. The new Hofner 500/2 Club Bass shares the feel, tone, and many features of the Hofner Vintage '63 but with a more traditional guitar body profile and a single cutaway. Includes Flight Style Hard Shell case.

This Bass is a Pro Bass Players delight. Light weight yet has all the sound and features expected from the German made Hofner’s finest model. Be sure to check out the cool Original Flight Style Hardshell Case. As nice as the bass. Nothing to note. It was never used. It comes with the shown Hofner Hang Tags…And don't forget, it will be shipped in the shown original Hofner Box with shipping materials...How cool is that?
Sold as-is no returns as its used, however, I have been hand picking my customers instruments now for 20 years now. They have all loved the guitars I find. This beautiful Bass will certainly not be an exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool Guitars
