This auction is for my Hofner reissue Beatle bass.  I bought this new in June of 1999 from my local music store that deals with Boosey-Hawkes.  This is the vintage '62 500/1 violin bass and fitted case.  Plays and sounds beautifully as a Hofner should.  Rich low tones and nice ringing highs.  Day Tripper never sounded better!  There are no issues/buzzing with the neck.  Electronics work great as does the switching.  Dual strip machine heads on back of headstock.  I prefer these to the singles.  Bass holds tune perfectly.  The body is superb with no dings, scratches or cracks.  Finish is glowing, no checks or crazing.  It does show the typical clouding on the butt of the tailpiece and pick-up covers.  Not significant and only due to age.  Pearloid pick guard shows no scratches.  Excellent overall condition.  This bass is awsome and is not getting the attention it deserves.  I'm playing my Fender P regularly now so the Hofner needs a good home.  The case is original and in excellent condition as well.  No dings or tears.  Nice plush maroon interior.  I still have the key and hang tag.   You can visit the Hofner website for all the specs.  This is NOT the Icon or Contemporary bass.  Good luck and ask questions.  No reserve so get it here for alot less!
