Hšfner Violin 'Beatle' Bass

The Hofner Model 500/1 Violin Bass, also known as the 'Beatle bass' because of its best-known user, is one of the most recognized bass guitars ever made.

In this book, Joe Dunn provides an overview of the guitar, including a brief history of the Hofner company, specifics about the model 500/1 (made in the late 50s and early 60s), a look at some later examples, and a profile of Paul McCartney. This high-quality, full-color book is a loving look at this famous instrument, perfect for all bass enthusiasts and Beatles fans.
