Up for grab is a really nice German made Hofner. I acquired it not too long ago and I just love how it sound and play. Unfortunately, I just can't foresee using it for my currently project anytime soon, so I am letting it go to a better home. According to all the info I could gather, this is a limited edition 500/2 from mid 2000's. Unlike the standard models, this one comes with gold plated pickups/Schaller straplock buttons/tail piece and black control plates/knobs/pickguard. The condition of bass is excellent, considering it's 10+ years old. It has some light swirls and dings here and there, but none penetrating through the finish, easily an 8.5/10 in my opinion. Currently, the bass is strung with a brand new set of La Bella Beatle Flat. I will also include an old set of D'Addario rounds, just in case if you'd like to compare them. As expected, the bass is super light, balanced and really a pleasure to play on. It will come with its original lightweight aluminum flight case. Asking $1250 USD shipped lower 48 USA & Canada.
