Very rare first edition Hofner Jubilee bass - In mint condition, never played, new in box (only unpacked for photographs, then reboxed - note no case included). One of only sixty first edition basses that were made specifically for the UK market to commemorate the Queen's Jubilee in 2012. Comes with a certificate of authenticity from Hofner. Not to be confused with the more common second edition made for both the UK and US which retailed for over £3000.
A beautiful and unique collectable instrument that will only increase in value over time. This is an authentic Hofner Contemporary 500/1 violin bass, similar to the one played by Paul McCartney during the Jubilee celebrations. If you missed out on getting one of these basses when they were first offered, why wait ten years and pay thousands more? Whether you want to play it or display it, get this one now and enjoy it!
Now that many of these basses have accumulated nearly five years worth of playing time, the number of stone cold mint examples available are going to be harder to find. Because of the delicate nature of this instrument, buyer must collect in Derby.
