    BEST playing German made Hofner Club I've ever had! Great Hofner sound as well, naturally.

    I bought another "Gold Label" Club, and I don't wish to be a "collector." Plus, I need the money to pay for the new one! I still have my '62 (in avatar) and "Beatle" bass.

    I bought this one last winter. It is supposed to be a "B" stock, and I got it for a decent price, and will pass that decent price along.

    You can tell it has been around a few years since there are "veins" in the finish. Not quite "checking," but look at the photos (3rd one particularly) and see for yourself.

    What makes it a "B stock" is a little binding separation in a couple of spots, which aren't really noticeable outside of 1 or 2 foot viewing distance. Some play wear shows (I can/will clean up most of it). Otherwise it is beautiful!

    Let me know if you want more photos. Those posted here are from the original seller from 7 months ago, and still represent this fab Club bass better than I can!

    Gold Label 500-2 06 (2).

    Gold Label 500-2 09.

    Gold Label 500-2 01.

    Gold Label 500-2 02.

    Gold Label 500-2 07.

    The neck is superb, with low action, and the Hofner (Pyramid) flats are still sounding and feeling great as well.

    I'm a huge Hofner fan, and have owned too many in my 45+ years of playing. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks for looking!!
