Here’s a new German-made Beatle bass from Hofner “Gold Label” series – essentially their Custom Shop in Germany. It’s a 1962 reissue 500/1 bass, but in bright pink! It comes with a new Hofner case and all the case candy.

Hofner did a series of Gold Label basses in colours, including red, black, white, purple, surf green, dark green, yellow, brown, but only a couple of pink ones made it to North America. Gold Label pieces are either individual or very limited runs, typically six or fewer pieces, made by Hofner’s craftsmen in Hagenau, Gemany.

The bass is new, strung with Pyramid flat wound strings from the factory, and sounds and plays great. There is some very minor finish checking near the waist, and almost undetectable weather checking in a couple of spots, so we’re offering it at a significant discount compared to its regular retail price as a result.
