Item 402 - Beatles: Paul McCartney Catalog 549 (Apr 2019)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $26,487.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Hofner 'violin' bass guitar with a natural finish and pearloid accents, signed beautifully on the body in black felt tip, "Paul McCartney, 1989." Includes a hardshell carrying case. In fine condition. Accompanied by three photographs of McCartney posing with the bass and the original recipient, as well as a certificate of authenticity from Tracks, noting that the signed guitar "was obtained by rock photographer, Frederyk Gabowicz, who met Paul McCartney on numerous occasions in Germany. They were originally introduced to one another by mutual friend Klaus Voormann. The guitar was signed for Frederyk backstage at the German TV show Bios Bahnhof." Basses signed on the body by McCartney are far scarcer than those signed on the pickguard. A gorgeous instrument signed by the Beatle that made Hofners one of the most identifiable bass guitars in rock music history—a magnificent example with provenance to match.
