    Description

    Circa 1965 Hofner 500/1 "Beatle" Sunburst Electric Bass Guitar. Moderate play-wear with scratches, finish checking, and one noticeable wear spot through the finish in the pickguard area. Missing truss rod cover. Neck heel join shows finish stress and minor separation. Playability is very high and this will require a neck re-set to address the problem. Both pickups have output and the electronics function with minimal hesitation. Hard case included. Condition: Fair.
