Hofner President Bass, Sunburst

Inspired by the iconic models of the 1950's and 1960's, the Hofner President is the contemporary version of the classic Hofner 500/5 President Bass as used in the early days of The Beatles, in the hands of original bassist, Stuart Sutcliffe.

A true classic in both shape and sound, the Hofner President is a fully hollow body bass with a gorgeous spruce top and flame maple back and sides that help to bring a crisp top end to the warmth of the hollow body sound. The Hofner President is stunning to look at, brilliant to play and sublime to hear.
