Hofner

A re-creation of the revered original.

It's hard to find original Hofners in mint condition without doing a lot of legwork, and or spending an inheritance. Because of the demand for such a throwback style is high, but those looking don't have those kind of resources, Hofner was compelled Hofner to recreate the Club Bass 500/2. The new Club Bass borrows the feel, the tone, and many features from the Vintage '63 and combines them with a single-cutaway profile with sharper wood hues that make it seem like you just walked out of a guitar shop in the '60s

  • Maple-beech-maple neck

Big bottom

Comments about Hofner 500/2 Club Bass Guitar:

Great bass , I've owned one of these reissues for about a year now, action was high when I first got it, but I had it lowered, switched the flat wound strings it came with to round wound and now it plays like a dream, so many great tones from this band, cuts thru everything too! short scale neck, very light, very comfortable ! Best bass I have, not for slappers though ....highly recommended !

Great bass!

Comments about Hofner 500/2 Club Bass Guitar:

I had been searching for a Club Bass for years and finally found a new one in a London music shop this summer. The new reissue plays and records really well. My only gripes are the fret finishing leaves a lot to be desired (and filed), and the strings don't quite line up with the pole pieces on the pickups. Still, it is a wonderful, light and warm sounding instrument.

great sounding on recordings

Comments about Hofner 500/2 Club Bass Guitar:

I've been using my club bass for about 30 years and still love the tone . It is so sweet and records very well. There is no mistaking the sound produced by this bass. The wood tones make it so mellow and deep that only a Hofner could bring about the sound. I've put the club thru a zoom 9030 in the fretless setting, and wow ,it is then a perfect fretless sound when combined with it's wonderful wood tones. I presently use it in a country band.

Comments about Hofner 500/2 Club Bass Guitar:

Years ago Hofner offered this model bass. Its light weight,the finish is flawless, the sound is the same vintage Hofner sound as the Beatle Bass! For those who want a more classic design, this is it!
