from the Hofner web site
Hofner makes guitars, basses, violins, violas, cellos and double basses. We have done for a long time - 125 years! The company is situated in Bavaria, southern Germany.
<img class="float-left mr-2" src="/images/logos/Hofner-Ukulele.png" alt="" width="191" height="69" />We are most famous for the legendary Violin Beatle Bass. That’s the one played for over 50 years by ex-Beatle, Paul McCartney. But we make a lot of other great guitars and basses including the Clubs and the Verythins. Then there is the famous President 500/5 bass too, played by Stuart Sutcliffe, also once of Beatle fame.
We are very proud that we continue to manufacture guitars and basses in the time honoured tradition - by hand. We have no computer controlled machinery, CNC machines or anything like that.
Hofner is unique because we are small enough to be work with you at a personal level but we are also large enough to innovate and improve.
