Maybe The President is not the most known bass in the Höfner catalog, but if you are a die hard Beatles fan, you'll know that original bassist Stuart Sutcliffe used it when the band started. It shares the short scale and thin neck with the rest of basses by Höfner. The large 16.5" body gives it a delicious warm and acoustic tone. It is deep but comfortable to play. The special pickups and their location also contribute to the special sound of this affordable bass. Hard case included.
