HOFNER 2012 DIAMOND JUBILEE VIOLIN BASS 500/1

After the huge success of the first batch of Chinese made Jubilee basses, Hofner have released a limited number of German made basses. This is a very limited run (75 worldwide, with 60 staying in GB, so 15 for the rest of the world) of the exact bass that Paul McCartney played at the Queen’s Jubilee concert. The serial numbers are 1953 – 2012 representing each one of the years that Queen Elizabeth II has been on the throne. It’s essentially a 62 spec Hofner Violin bass but:
 

•Flame maple back and sides.
•Union Jack custom spray job, with the white of the flag being the flame maple showing through.
•Comes with limited edition certificate and individual serial number – only 75 made worldwide.
•Comes with custom hard case.

Musikhuset-Odense are proud to offer 1 of only 75 instruments worldwide based on the Hofner Bass Guitar used by former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in June 2012.

The only official re-creation of the bass made famous by Sir Paul McCartney at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert. This individual version of Hofner’s legendary Violin Bass is now available in an extremely limited edition Union Jack finish.

This Hofner HCT Violin Bass features the distinctive style of the original with the playability of a more modern instrument. As with all other Contemporary Series semi-acoustic guitars, the Violin Basses are equipped with an internal centre sustain block to reduce on-stage feedback.
