For Sale: Hofner Blue CT Bass Guitar

I just purchased this Hofner CT Bass, my second one. I also have a red one. We've had a financial bump in the road and I cannot financially justify, owning 2 CTs. It is brand new and has been used once. I put GHS tape wound strings on and there is no case. This bass retails for $769.00 which includes the case which retails for $70.00. That would make the bass alone retail for $699.00. You can have this one for $600.00 shipped to the lower 48. Outside the lower 48 the price is $575.00 plus shipping. This is one of only 76 made. PM me if you are interested. Here are the specs and info:

Rosewood fretboard
22 frets
Maple-beech-maple set neck
Neck width at nut 1 5/8"
4 individual machine heads

Flamed maple back and sides
2 Hofner 511B 'Staple' humbucking pickups

Hofner H500/1-CT Contemporary Series Violin Bass Guitar
A year after celebrating the 50th anniversary of Walter H&omul;fner's original violin bass, made famous by a certain Beatle that shall remain nameless, they have decided to produce a contemporary version. With a vintage look that will produce many "oohs", and an internal sustain block that creates a more modern, deep-resonating sound that will produce many "aahs", it's the kind of bass guitar people love to see, play, and hear. Aesthetically, this model features a maple-beech-maple set neck with rosewood fretboard accentuated by mother-of-pearl dot inlays, the signature H&omul;fner violin bass headstock, a brass trapeze tailpiece, and glossy spruce top with glossy flamed maple back and sides. An ebony bridge with movable metal saddles maintain intonation and string spacing. The nickel-plated hardware and floating celluloid pearl pickguard give it an extra little pop for the eyes. On the electronics side, you're working with two original H&omul;fner 511B 'Staple' humbucking pickups, as well as a control panel with 2 volume controls, 2 on/off switches, and a rhythm/solo switch for volume boost. The overall sound is warm like the original model, but with a little more sonic kick for a more "now" sound. All in all, this alteration of Walter's original guitar is as pleasing to the eyes as it is to the ears.
