Lot 7023: Gorgeous left-handed sunburst-finish Hofner 'violin' or 'Cavern' B-Bass HI-Series bass guitar, beautifully signed on the pearloid pickguard in black felt tip. In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, in which he writes, "This signature was obtained in person in 2009. Paul McCartney signed Hofner left handed bass guitars are very rare and also extremely desirable." Originally designed by Walter Hofner in 1955, the beautifully shaped 'Beatle bass' remains a highly sought-after piece of musical equipment, and this very instrument, signed by one of the world's most influential four-stringers, is no exception.
