I've had several Hofners through the years and a brand new one is amazing. All of the tone without the idiosyncrasies of a 50 year old instrument. I highly recommend this bass to anyone looking for that classic Beatles sound and look.

Beatles-Fan, 29.11.2009
Seit einigen Monaten jetzt bin ich Besitzer eines Höfner 500/1 Beatles-Bass, ein authentischer Nachbau des Modells aus dem Jahr 1962 also, das Paul McCartney während seiner Zeit bei den Beatles spielte und auch heute noch live auf der Bühne spielt.

Manch einer wird sich die Frage stellen, ob dieses Instrument den Aufpreis beispielsweise gegenüber der Contemporary Serie von Höfner wert ist. Ich darf vorweg nehmen: ja, und zwar uneingeschränkt!

Der Höfner 500/1 Vintage 62 ist hervorragend verarbeitet. Dies ist heutzutage leider nicht selbstverständlich. Zuvor habe ich einige Jahre auf einer preiswerten Kopie eines Beatles-Bass von Johnson gespielt und habe mir dann auch einen Höfner Violin Bass aus der Contemporary Serie angesehen. Die Contemporay Serie ist laut Höfner die zeitgenössische Version des Violin-Basses. Zeitgenössisch bedeutet hierbei dann leider auch Made in China, was man dem Instrument deutlich ansah.

Aufgrund seiner 1962-er Halsabmessungen ist der 500/1 Vintage 62 unglaublich leicht und angenehmen zu spielen. Derzeit spiele ich den Bass über einen VOX T-25 Amp und zumeist nur über den vorderen der beiden Staple Humbucking Tonabnehmer. Im Fingerstyle erzielt man so einen unglaublich weichen, tiefen und warmen Ton, der mich als anspruchsvollen Beatles-Fan absolut zufrieden stellt. Etwas rockiger und fetziger klingt es, wenn man mit gleichem Setup im Plektrumstyle spielt. Der Treble-Sound über den hinteren Tonabnehmer ist etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig und entspricht nicht unbedingt meinem Geschmack.

Im Lieferumfang enthalten sind ein passender Vintage Koffer und ein Höfner-Gurt. Das Anlegen des Gurts ist etwas kniffelig, da er vorne nicht über einen Gurtknopf befestigt wird sondern unter dem Hals hindurch gezogen werden muss und mit dem anderen Ende dann über einen Lederriemen verzurrt wird.

Erlesene deutsche Fichte, aufwendige Nitro-Lackierung in Antikbraun-Sunburst in Handarbeit (Made in Germany) gefertigt, machen dieses Instrument zu einem echten Schmuckstück, für mich zu einem Instrument fürs Leben. Nicht zuletzt spielt auch Paul McCartney seinen Höfner 500/1 Vintage 62 seit mehr als 30 Jahren.
