Retrovibe 4-string f-hole Violin bass – NO PICKUP FITTED
I’ve always had a problem with the lack of F-holes and inappropriate control plate on the Hofner Violin bass. Not to mention the odd set-neck angle on many of the cheap copies out there. So I decided to have a small number of these made up with real F-holes, proper Hofner-style necks which you can loop a leather strap underneath for that true Macca look and no pickups or controls fitted so that I/you could finish them exactly how I/you want them.
This will make a great project if you’re looking for something a little bit different whcih you can customise and finish to your own specification.
My aim was to keep the look as much like a double bass as possible. The body has traditional 4-layer binding while those gorgeous f-holes are highlighted in white.
Scale length is 30.5″
