guitarz.blogspot.com: Höfner 172 R Bass which - as was fashionable at the time - has a vinyl-covered body. Regular readers might notice the similarity with instruments from the American Kapa company, which often used necks, pickups and other hardware imported from Höfner. Here, of course, we are seeing the German-made original!
Although the condition isn't great and it is being sold as a project, even Höfner parts are quite sought after these days by collectors. This bass is currently listed on eBay and has a Buy It Now price of $329.
