Hofner 500/1 Beatle Bass in NJ for $1000 - original 60's Hofner

This is about as cheap as you'll ever see one of these.  Highly collectible item.  These usually go for quite a bit more - seller says this one needs neck adjutment but it doesn't look too bad in the pics.  too low is better than too high.   I am not very familiar with these (I do own a copy, though). Nice condition too on his original 1960's Hofner.

  1. This looks like a nice bass,but the seller doesn't post close enough photos to show the condition. Appears to be a late 60s model with blade pick ups and closed machines on the tuners., after 67 likely. It's hard to tell from the photos. They state it has a small control plate,but is clearly the larger version. Seller should do a bit more research on their own item.


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
