The bass? Hofner Club Bass!
i know that ....anything else? are they still for sale new? is hofner still around? how much? woods/specs etc......GO!
Since we're in "Basses" I assume you're talking about that Hofner 500/2 Club bass, not the Vox AC100 with the T-60 cab???
Hofner has reissued these things, based on the Club bass from the early 60's.
I had a Hofner "violin" bass and I don't know that the Club is all tht different -30" scale but the pups aren't the Hofner "staple" pups.
Good sounding piece of wood!....(at least I know the old ones are).
Yes, they are still for sale new.
Yes, Hofner is still around.
List is $1899.

i see em popping up here and there, but are there any online dealers?
Did you click the link in my post? Elderly instruments is a dealer, but the reissue is limited to 100 units, and they are not available yet. I doubt if any of the big online dealers will carry such a limited production, low interest instrument. Elderly is probably your best bet.
Hey, Jeff - remember way back when people used to say "thanks"???
Oh, that was back when people use to say "please", I think.
Is that "gimme", Jerry???
thank you kindly sirs.
If you want to know how the 500/2 sounds, check out almost any Talking Heads stuff. Tina Weymouth played one when the Heads were together. Though only available on vinyl, the double live set, "The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads," is a classic and she is using a 500/2.
