1979 Greco VB-500 Violin Bass MIJ

Something very different to normal over here at BassBros! This is a Greco VB-500 Violin bass, this is an exeptional cost effective way to own a Hofner Violin style bass. We have to say, the quality is second to none and easily on par with Hofner. Those that know the Greco brand will know this is true of most of there ‘copies’. The bass is an early example of the Greco VB and is a higher end model

This one comes with the original hardcase and is only missing the pickguard (we think it looks better without anyway!). For it’s age it is in fantastic condition. There are some lacquer cracks and plenty of playing wear and small dings, overall very good for the age. There is some cracking around the neck joint, as is the same with a lot of vintage violin basses, it is all structurally sound. We have checked and cleaned everything and it all works as it should.
