Hi

I would very much appreciate your help on this one. I have found a (in my opinion) very strange Hofner 500/1. It looks as if it was built in the late 60's or early 70's because of the printed logo on the headstock. The strange thing about this bass is the controls: all of the knobs, together with some strange switches ("boost" and so on), are located on some kind of plate that "follows" the edge of the bass! I have never seen one like this before.

I think a pic will make "identification" of this bass much easier:

Thank you!
