What they say

Gold label Club bass with Alpi back and sides, spruce top. Finished in matt natural lacquer.

The Höfner Club Bass was introduced in 1964 as an alternative to the famous Violin Bass model. It was aimed at bass players who wanted a slightly larger body but wanted the famous Höfner tone produced from the hollow body, set in neck and cantilevered fingerboard. This Gold Label model is built in exactly the same way as the original 60s models and is fitted with flatwound strings specifically designed for Höfner short scale 30" basses. It is lightweight, beautifully balanced and perfect for long playing sessions without back and shoulder strain.

Gold Label instruments are small runs or even single pieces with special finishes, colours or components. They are specially prepared and finished by our master luthiers in the workshops of Höfner in Hagenau, Germany. Each piece comes with a Gold Label certificate of authenticity.
