    Description

    Paul McCartney Signed Left-Handed Hofner Bass. In 1956, Walter Hofner conceived an amplified semi-acoustic bass that revolutionized popular music. The design was launched at the 1956 Frankfurt Music Fair and rose to fame after Paul McCartney bought his first Hofner bass in a shop in Hamburg in 1961, and used it on many of the Beatles' most famous songs. McCartney continues to use Hofner to this day, and the design is often referred to as the "Beatle bass." This Hofner Icon Series bass guitar, with a design approximating Hofner's original (made in China with slightly different materials, and is lacking the "zero" fret), is beautifully signed across the pickguard by McCartney in black felt tip and in Excellent condition. Accompanied by COAs from Frank Caiazzo and Perry Cox.
