1969 Hofner 500/8 cherry red Bass guitar was in good condition . I believed it to be in the 60's.  The red lacquer had no cracks - just some small dings,scratches. No cracks in the wood. Someone engraved their name below "Made in Germany". (see pictures)  Neck needed some straightening.  One pickup had low signal, but it sounded great!

Value: approx. $600
