Description

Cream City Music has been the area's premier Hofner dealer for many years & we are now proud to present this absolutely gorgeous Lefty '61 Vintage Reissue that was given an "aged" treatment by the luthiers in Germany. This ultra cool "relic" gives the appearance of a bass that has been well-played over the years in clubs & theaters, but in actuality is a brand new instrument. Just arrived from Germany, professionally set up & ready to play! Deluxe tweed case included along with COA & accessories.

Handmade in Germany: A special Vintage Violin Bass created by Hofner's master in the violin lacquer dept. Beautifully aged to look authentically vintage, but with the advantage of a brand new bass. Very special and secret varnishes are used to achieve the remarkable aged finish. The 61-RLC is inspired by the bass made in 1961 for Paul McCartney and features an unbound 3 piece neck and single tuners. Each bass is a unique instrument; no two are exactly alike as the ageing process is all done by hand. All models are supplied with a pearloid pickguard (not mounted) and include a Höfner Vintage strap and case.
