Hofner 500/1 Contemporary Violin Bass Guitar Cavern Spacing - Sunburst w/ Case - B-Stock SN010

Weight - 6 Pounds 6 Ounces!

What makes this beautiful bass a B-stock?  The sunburst looks like too much black was sprayed.  On the sides of the back of the neck you can see how one side has more black sprayed.  There is also some finish blemishes on the lower side of the neck by the frets however it still feels smooth and it does not feel like there is any cracking in the finish.  This bass has a beautiful flamed maple back! 

Recreating the style of the 1961 version.

Featuring a sustain block inside the body to give modern, deep-resonating bass sounds while still retaining the original Hofner Beatles bass sound. With a short scale of 30" and the small violin bass body it is one of greatest electric bass guitars ever made.
