It's a great bass for noodling at home as it's so small and I often use mine for this purpose sitting on the couch in front of the TV, perfect, it's grown on me over time.
If I were to accidentaly sit on it I'm not sure if I would rush out and buy another but as it's my "couch noodling" bass I'm sure I would miss it.
He had fronted a big band for many years, ran a dance hall - The Palladium - next to his shop, starred in one of the first live music shows on local television, designed and manufactured Johnson guitar amps and PA systems that he exported all over the world.
I would often drop in and try out the guitars he had on display and he would often take time to share a few of the chords and riffs he knew on the instrument.
The 500/1 featured a hollow body, flat back (until 1962), light weight and short 30" scale.
Much of Höfner's popularity is attributed to Paul Mc Cartney's use of the Höfner 500/1 bass throughout his career.Have to say I bought this bass as more of a novelty item than for serious use but having used it often and taken it out several times I think it's up to the job if handled well.Nothings dropped off, it stays in tune and when it's round your neck you hardly notice it's there.The main attraction here was the pass it provided to the great stereo listening rooms where we were to listen to famous operas and the great composers. Through the day much of my time would be spent in a room down the dorm hallway where one of my classmates, a Hi Fi Stereo buff, was eager to showcase his great sound system and his great reel-to-reel tape collection of the latest Broadway and Show tunes.Stereo records were a relatively new phenomenon then so night after night I would smuggle in all the stereo LPs I could afford to buy: Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Dave Brubeck, exotic percussion records, big bands, Nancy Wilson and other great girl jazz singers, ... After our daily TV noon show and the occasional class, my visits downtown would take me to the Strand Theatre for a matinee and a browze through all the record, music, magazine book and second-hand stores, sometimes followed by a visit to a Chinese restaurant to satisfy a craving for my recently discovered food obsession.
