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
