Iconic Body Shape

This stunning, retro-inspired bass guitar features a spruce top, along with a flame maple body for a powerful projection with crisp articulation. Its hollow body design offers a superb resonant tone when used acoustically, and the pair of elegant F sound holes allow the natural sound to be projected forward. Players can benefit from the single cutaway design which provides easier access to those unreachable frets.

Achieving the perfect tone is easy with the famous Hofner control panel, which features options for volume, treble, bass and solo boost for a great sixties style sound. This stunning bass guitar allows you to capture the tones of the 50s and 60s at a very affordable price.
