Club Bass - Purple

Produktnummer: GL-CB-PR-0
The famous 500/2 Club Bass finished in purple with matching neck.



Flag Handmade in Germany.

This Gold Label 500/2 Club Bass is finished in deep Hi-gloss Purple and has a matching neck and rear headstock. The Club bass was first introduced in 1964 and the Gold Label versions follow the original models in style and build. A fully hollow body, set in neck and cantilevered fingerboard make this a distinct design that produces the famous Höfner bottom end tone. Fitted with flatwound strings that are specifically designed for the Club and Violin bass guitars you will instantly achieve that famous 1960s bass sound. Because of the hollow body the Club bass is lightweight and is perfect for extended sessions without causing back and shoulder strain. It is a perfectly balanced, robust bass guitar.

Unlike the originals this special Gold Label bass is not in traditional Sunburst but in a deep Purple finish that look perfect on this bass. This colour reflects the light in subtle ways producing a spectrum from Magenta through to Black.

Featuring twin standard spaced "Höfner Staple" 511B pickups as fitted to the original models from 1964 to 1967. A black version of the famous Höfner control panel perfectly compliments the colour of this instrument. It comes in a luxury Höfner case.

Gold Label instruments are small runs or even single pieces with special finishes, colours or components. They are specially prepared and finished by our master luthiers in the workshops of Höfner in Hagenau, Germany. Each piece comes with a Gold Label certificate of authenticity.
