If anyone else has any info please shoot me a message. All reasonable offers will be considered, best offer gets it. With only 50 units ever made, this Hofner Limited Edition 1959 Reissue 500/1 bass is truly a rarity. Built to the original 1959 specs, this bass looks, feels, and sounds like the Hofner made famous by Paul McCartney in the early days of the Beatles.
