This book has been out of print for a number of years, and at one point it was fetching up to £75 a copy on E-Bay. ISBN:1423462742 Written by Gordon Giltrap and Neville Marten.Well, it is now out there again but this time with the Hal Leonard publishing group. The book is pretty much the same as it was apart from the cover and new colour photographs plus an extra chapter written by Paul Day detailing "Hofner yesterday and today" featuring some of the super newer models. We did submit some current photographs of Nev Martin my co author and I, but for some reason they have printed the originals from 16 years ago. A true classic, back in print with an updated section covering 1994 to today!The headstock featured a new vertical Hofner logo that replaced the diamonds on the headstock (see photo below). The heel is now considerably rounded from previous years. Hofner still manufactures the 500/1 Bass as well as several variations.The control panel cover went from an oval panel to rectangular control panel. A new horizontal gold script logo decal was used on the headstock Closed pickups were added with the Hofner name inside a diamond. Current lines include the Hofner Club Series and Reissue 5 Violin Basses as well as limited edition reissues such as the 1959 specification H500/1-59.As the popularity of Mc Cartney's band increased, the 500/1 Hofner violin bass earned it's nick name "the Beatle Bass" forever linked to the most popular band of the 20th century.The 500/1 bass featured a symmetrical violin style design, was very light weight, had very good playability and a was offered at a reasonable price.
The 500/1 featured a hollow body, flat back (until 1962), light weight and short 30" scale.The back and sides were made of laminated flamed maple with a solid spruce top. The fret board was made from Brazilian or Indian rosewood and had 20 frets (the 1957 models had 21 frets). Early Hofner basses used strip style tuners however later models used individual tuning machines.500/1 necks were originally quite fat using solid maple but truss rods were added later to allow a smaller stronger neck.Pour en savoir plus, notamment sur les moyens de contrôle disponibles, consultez la Politique d’utilisation des cookies.
Many of you will remember I'm sure the Hofner book that IMP brought out onto the market way back in 1993.
