Hofner 500/2 Club Bass CV - Dark Violin

Back to List
SKU: P06247


The Hofner 500/2 Club CV Bass is a work of art. Its hollowbody construction gives it a warm, resonant tone that’s perfect for a wide range of musical styles. The bass features a spruce top and flame maple back and sides, making it not just a treat for the ears but for the eyes too. The classic dark violin finish adds to its vintage charm, making it a head-turner on any stage.

The short scale length makes it incredibly comfortable to play, especially for those long gigs or recording sessions. The neck feels just right in your hands, and the action is smooth and responsive. It's also extremely lightweight (4lbs 6oz). 

Hofner's unique design and quality craftsmanship deliver that deep, punchy tone that's become synonymous with their name. It's a sound that's been embraced by bass legends like Jack Bruce of Cream, Klaus Voormann, and, of course, Paul McCartney. When you play a Hofner, you're not just playing an instrument; you're tapping into a legacy of legendary bass tones.
