Univox Lectra Violin Bass currently listed on eBay tells us that it is a:
"COPY OF THE HOFFNER THAT PAUL McCARTNEY PLAYED IN THE EARLY YEARS OF THE BEATLES" (sic)Looking at this solidbody violin bass, I'd say it was more likely a copy of the Gibson violin bass, and a more accurate copy than Hofner's version. I'm not normally a fan of violin basses and guitars but think this one is quite cool.
