    Description is below:

    The Hofner HCT 500/1 is the contemporary series version of the famous Beatle Bass by Hofner, upgraded from the Icon series. The CT Series is an almost exact copy in the true sense of the word, it's hard tell it apart, side by side, with the German made instrument. Features include a sustain block inside the body that makes for a modern deep resonating bass with superior sustain. Comes with the original Höfner (German made) 'Staple-Top' pick-ups, Zero Fret, Binding, Parchment tinted pickguard and control panel.

    Has both "tea-cup" knobs and flat-wound strings set up by the retailer (at least $50 value)
