Hofner's Limited Edition 1961 Cavern Bass Reissue is a top-of-the-line instrument that harkens back to the early days of British rock 'n' roll. Named after The Cavern Club in Liverpool where the Beatles got their start, this bass is dripping with old-school charm. If you've been searching for a high-end bass that excels at churning out stellar vintage tones, look no further - the Cavern Bass Reissue is an excellent choice.
This bass sports a hollow flame maple body with an arched spruce top, giving it a rich, woody sound with big, thumpin' lows and tight, articulate highs. While it sounds fantastic for Motown, classic rock, and early soul/R&B, its versatile electronics allow it to fit into a wide range of performance settings. Equipped with Hofner Cavern pickups, dual volume knobs, pickup switches, and a rhythm/solo switch, this bass can cover plenty of tonal ground.
Beyond its remarkable sound, the Cavern Bass Reissue looks absolutely stunning. From its classic sunburst finish to its pearloid pickguard and gold-topped teacup knobs, this bass looks nearly indistinguishable from a genuine '60s Hofner. It also displays gorgeous flaming on the back and neck and features black/white/black body binding that acts as the cherry on top for its elegant aesthetic.
Complete with a deluxe tweed case for safe transport, the Hofner Limited Edition 1961 Cavern Bass Reissue is perfect for left-handed players seeking an outstanding vintage-inspired bass.
