Hofner adds basses to its Gold Label Series

Hofner keeps on developing its Gold Label Series on the bass-side with 6 new shiny Violin models.

Along with the Raven Black limited edition, bass players can now choose between 6 new finishes for the Gold Label Violin instrument. All the basses have the same specifications, with two pickups, except for the Violin Royal Blue 3P which sports two Toaster neck and center pickups and a Staple bridge model.

All the models have a close spaced pickup configuration, just like on the vintage Violin basses.
