1968 1969 Hofner Violin Paul McCartney Beatle Bass
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-07-28)
Price : US $905.00
I have owned this bass since 1996 and it has seen very little action as I do not play bass. I am a bit unsure of the year as I bought it used from a music store and they said it was a 1968. I can't find the serial #, but the pots have # 240/250 on each one. It does play but it has flaws. The neck has the common bow in it, but I have never had the truss rod adjusted. The pickguard is stable and doesn't seem to be loose like other ones. The bridge is damaged and missing a string saddle. I don't see any evidence of cracks in the wood, but there are small cracks in the finish. There are a variety of nicks and dings in the finish and I have tried to show all of the major ones in the photos. The switches and knobs work, but one of the switches is a bit crackly, and one knob is missing the gold cover. The case is original and in overall good condition.
I'm sure there are things I forgot to add, so ask any and all questions before bidding.
Winning bidder shall make full payment within 5 days of auction close.
