very special Bass Guitar features an all-white finish combined with
black hardware and body art specially commissioned by Hofner from Klaus
Voormann. Klaus Voormann is a German artist, musician, and
record producer who enjoyed a close association and special relationship
with the Beatles. It was Klaus who designed the cover of the Revolver
album, for which he won a Grammy Award. The unique design on the top of
this bass is in the same style as the Revolver Album. As a
musician, Voormann is best known for being the bassist for Manfred Mann
from 1966 to 1969 and for performing as a session musician on a host of
recordings, including many by former members of the Beatles.His
association with the Beatles dated back to their time in Hamburg in the
early 1960s. He lived in the band's London flat with George Harrison and
Ringo Starr after John Lennon and Paul McCartney moved out to live with
their respective partners, Following the band's split, rumours
circulated of the formation of a group named the Ladders, consisting of
Lennon, Harrison, Starr and Voormann. While this failed to materialise,
all four along with Billy Preston performed on the Ringo Starr track
"I'm the Greatest". Klaus Voormann went on to play on albums by Lennon,
Harrison and Starr and was for a time a member of the Plastic Ono Band.
In the 1990s, Klaus Voorman designed the artwork for the Beatles
Anthology albums.In 2009, he released his debut solo album, "A
Sideman's Journey", which featured many notable musicians, including the
two surviving members of the Beatles, performing as "Voormann and
Friends".This is one of those "once in a lifetime"
opportunities. The headstock of this Limited Edition Hofner 500/1 bass
features the original 1956 profile and logo, not used before on any
re-issue instruments.The hardware is in black and the strings
are Höfner Black tape-wound with green end binding. If you want to know
what a Hofner electric Bass Guitar sounded like in 1956, these strings
are the keys to your Time Machine. The original style oval control panel
has been used and specially produced in white and black for this
instrument. Control knobs are supplied in both contemporary black and
vintage Teacup style.All of the 60 basses have been made available to a limited number of Hofner Dealers world-wide - ours is number 20.Our
example is on offer on a first come first served basis. No Ignition or
Contemporary versions will be made. This is it - our Bass, handmade in
Germany, is number 20 of the 60 made.The Hofner 500/1 violin bass was originally designed by Walter Hofner and launched at the Frankfurt Music Messe in 1956. Founded
in 1864, Hofner has built an enviable reputation making precision
string instruments for musicians. The Beatles' Sir Paul McCartney played
a Hofner Violin Bass and the Hofner's superb attention to detail and
stylish design has continued to inspire both Rock and Jazz musicians to
this day. Despite the numerous changes over 125 years the company is
still strongly a family firm with strong values and unswerving respect
for customers along with a commitment to building high quality, hand made musical instruments. We love them and are sure that you will too!
