Höfner Releases Gold Label Edition Violin Beatle Basses -
Höfner have announced a new range of special Gold Label Edition Violin Beatles bass guitars.
The new collection features a striking array of colours and in some cases unusual pickup combinations, including a 3 pickup bass.
The new Hofner line is intended to appeal to a whole new generation of bass players who appreciate the 'unique qualities of a Hofner bass but would like it in a different finish to the original sunburst.
The new line, which have all been hand-made in Germany, are available in Raven Black, Dawn Purple, and Royal Blue in dual-Toaster configuration, Party Pink in dual-Staple configuration, and Royal Blue.
The 3-pickup Royal Blue version features two 1960-style Toaster pickups in the neck position and a Staple pickup ('63 - '67 era) in the bridge.
"This unique pickup combination offers the player both the earlier "Close Space" sound asscocaited with the Cavern model as well as the later (1962 onwards) "Normal Spaced" sound as from the famous models from 1963/64."
