Thinking to sell my 1965 Hofner 500/1 restauration project!
Unfortunatelly I do not have the time to finish it
Restauration is finished up to approx. 90% and the bass is ready for playing again.
Everything is in good condition. Do not forget: it is a real 1965 – it is NOT new!
Tuners are all original ones and they work fine. The neck is straight and not twisted. The truss rod is OK. Fret wire is in good condition!
– Professional neck reset
– Both pickups rewound by hand to original specs, using original copper wire.
– Bone nut installed; I will give the old one on top
– One tea cup knob replaced with a genuine replacement part
– bridge got repaired
What is left to do:
– cut and mount the pickguard; prepared already
– clean up and polish the laquer; some small dents to repair
If you are interessted in this original bass from „The golden Beatles Aera“, send me an sensitive offer.
Collect in northern Germany is preferred, but I can send to outside of Germany/Europe as well – if the buyer takes the costs.
Feel free to ask for more detailed pictures.
