Be the first to review Hofner HCT-500/1-DBR Contemporary Series Limited Edition Dark Brown Violin Bass. Write a review ›

This Special Edition "Cavern" version of the best-selling Contemporary Violin Bass offers those wanting to own one of the World's iconic guitars the chance to do so at a very attractive price. Finished in a special dark brown translucent lacquer it offers a classic look and style. 

With "close spaced pickups it recreates the style of the 1961 version of the Violin Bass. 


It features a sustain block inside the body to give modern, deep-resonating bass sounds while still retaining the original Hofner Beatles bass sound. With a short scale of 30" and the small violin bass body it is one of greatest electric bass guitars ever made. 

We Welcome Part Exchange

We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.

How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.

You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
