Absolutely stunning all original Hofner Senator Bass, made in 1965 in the German factory. This is the real deal, and sounds sublime. That wonderful honky low end attack...play with a pick and mute with your palm, you'd struggle to find a better recorded bass tone!! You see so many of these without the original pickguard, but not this one, it's all there.

 

Has just been set up by pro luthier so intonation is spot on, plays like a dream. Electronics are all good too, ready to rock. At present there is no case with it, so a handover near Oxfordshire or London is preferable. But if a serious buyer wanted to source a hard case I am not averse to shipping.

 

Thanks for reading :)

OMG, a stunning bass for a stunning price! 

Thank you! I think I may have underpriced based on interest, but it will make someone very happy. Damn this cost of living crisis!!

I had one of these. It was my first bass guitar, second hand in 1972 or thereabouts. I think I sold it  a couple of years later for £15, should have hung onto it with hindsight.

 

Quite unusual to see one in this condition without a heel repair or re-glueing. Very nice, good luck with the sale.

Actually, it’s seems to depend which decoder I use. 
 

this one suggests 1956 http://www.vintagehofner.co.uk/ramsay/date.htm

 

where as this one says 1965 https://www.guitarinsite.nl/serienummers-hofner_eng.php

 

Wonderful either way!

Thanks! Pretty sure it is 1965 based on when Hofner produced this particular line of basses.

I think I’ve found the internets most useless serial decoder! 🤣 

 

I suspect you’re absolutely right and this is a case of me having a little knowledge but nowhere near enough! 😂

 

Apologies!

Now sold, thanks for interest. 

 

On a related matter, I can't work out how you edit the title of a post to say it is sold. I can edit the main body of the text but seemingly not the title. Can anyone help this poor old luddite?😂

Go to the 3 little dots top right hand side and select edit, should work from there
