Based on the 1962 model Paul McCartney still uses today, the vintage '62 has delighted Hofner aficionados by replicating details of the original. For example, the "strip" machine heads, the slot-head screws on the hardware, and the two piece neck are authentic touches that connect the instrument to an earlier time. In the Vintage '62, Hofner has created a replica of Paul's bass historically accurate enough to satisfy even the most demanding Beatles fan.

The beautiful detail of the Vintage '62 Beatle Bass is apparent from the top down. You will find the finest hand-carved German Spruce on the top and the sides and Highly flamed German maple graces the back of this exceptional instrument. The finish is a deep robust sunburst topped with a lustrous lacquer.

Perloid control panels and pick guard, as well as white body molding help accent the deep robust sunburst finish.

Two of the venerable "staple" pickups are standard. These are an exact replication of the pickups used on H500 basses in the early sixties, before the change to the less desirable bar style pickups of the later sixties and onward.

The Vintage '62 has a two piece European maple neck which is faithful in design to the original 62 H500. The neck is slightly thicker by 1/8th" from the top of unbound rosewood fret board to the center of the back radius. His is compared with the V63 H500 Bass. This slightly deeper neck is preferred by some players for its stability and substantial feel. The neck is a 3/4 Scale or 30 inches.
