The Hofner violin bass is widely known as the Beatles Bass because it’s used by Paul McCartney. Guitarbear really loves the look of this one.

For the special edition, the top of the bass is designed by Klaus Voorman, who also designed The Beatles’ album Revolver.

Of the 60, 6 will be built left-handed. Guitarbear wonders if Sir Paul will get one. 🙂
