Inspired by the original Hofner Verithin bass from the 1960s, the Hofner Contemporary version of the Verythin Bass offers you an archtop bass with a vintage look and sound at an affordable price. The short scale makes this electric bass guitar easy to play and handle, while the centre block gives modern deep bass sounds and helps to eliminate feedback.

Founded in 1864, Hofner's comprehensive range of guitars draws on the firms long-standing success making precision string instruments for musicians. The Beatles' Sir Paul McCartney played a Hofner Violin Bass, and the company's superb attention to detail and stylish design has continued to inspire musicians to this day. Despite the numerous changes over 125 years the company is still strongly a family firm with strong values for customers, and for high quality musical instruments.
