The contemporary version of the Violin Bass: the sustain block inside the body makes for modern, deep-resonating bass sounds. Original Höfner 'Staple-Top' pick-ups. In a Sunburst finish.
The CT Series Guitars and Basses are based on Höfner originals of the sixties, seventies & eighties.
The Contemporary models however, are no yesterday's collectors' items, but designed for the tough live performance of today's guitarist.
The most famous user of the original Violin Bass was Paul McCartney, who used it throughout his years in The Beatles, in fact it resulted in the bass becoming known as the 'Beatle-Bass'!
