New Höfner Gold Label Violin Basses

Höfner have just completed a number of new special Gold Label edition Violin Beatle Basses. These basses feature striking colours and in some cases unusual pickup combinations, including a 3 pickup bass. Obviously they represent a complete change to the usual sunburst variety of the Violin Bass and are intended to appeal to a new generation of bass players who are appreciate the unique qualities of the Höfner bass but would like it in anything except sunburst.

All of this new line up are hand-made in Germany and use top quality German components. They are available now to order from Höfner dealers and can be seen on the Höfner website at:
