Wanna Own a Hofner like Paul's for 2 grand and some change, you can.
In 1956, Walter Hofner had an idea for an amplified semi-acoustic bass. When it was brought to life, his idea revolutionized popular music. Many players revere Hofner's Violin Bass as a legend because of its historical significance and its warm, woody, double-bass-like amplified tone.
The Hofner Violin Bass is a unique instrument with a smooth, sweet sound and a playing ease that simply eludes most ordinary basses. Based on Paul McCartney's 1962 Violin Bass, it replicates details of the original including the "strip" machine heads, the slot-head screws on the hardware, and the 2-piece neck.
These are authentic touches that connect this instrument to an earlier time. In the Vintage '62 Hofner has created a replica of Paul's bass historically accurate enough to satisfy even the most demanding Beatles fan. Wouldn't this be nice if it was signed? ha!~
