Classic Vintage Sunburst Finish, 2 shadow Bar pickups for feedback free loud vintage tone. Cavern Spacing, awesome oval control panel, two on a strip tuners, flat back and vertical logo.  Based on Hofner 1958 500/1 bass specs. 

We're hoping they build a batch in the future.  If you're interested in a 58 bass please let us know and we will put your name on a 58 want list and we will notify you if Hofner decides to build more.
