1961 Hofner 500/1 (Revolution Bass)



This Bass, I tell ya...!!!


A beautiful Hofner Cavern Bass Reissue that is louder, deeper and more acoustically resonant than the 1963 reissue we're currently using.


It also has a fatter neck which may be the reason it projects more. I converted the pickup surrounds and had it refinished to replicate Paul's original Cavern Bass after he had it 'refurbished' into what would be known as the 'Revolution' bass.


It is used primarilly as a backup bass in this show as was Paul's.
