1961 Hofner 500/1 Cavern Bass - Vintage / Not Reissue

via this auction where you'll find more pics.

"Here is your chance to own a piece of history. This is an actual 1961 Hofner 500/1 "Cavern" bass with original hardshell case. These do not come up for sale too often. This bass is 100% McCartney-spec, right down to the flat back, Rugby ball tuners, diamond non-screw pickups and Hofner Spear headstock logo. This bass is in incredible condition for a 51 year-old instrument and plays like a dream. The pickguard is a replacement and the body has had an over-spray at one point.

The serial number 3361, which is a Van Wouw serial number placing it in 1961 and the pot codes are 250k 241, placing those at the 24th week of 1961.

The original Selmer tweed case is in absolutely amazing condition as well. Probably the best one I have ever seen."
