Replica Beatles' guitars go on show at Beatles Story Guitar company Höfner has loaned four one-off replicas of instruments used by Paul McCartney and John Lennon to the Beatles Story. The 1964 Vintage 500/1 Bass, Paul McCartney 500/1 Backup Bass, Jubilee 500/1 Bass and the Club 40 John Lennon re-issue guitar have gone on display at the Albert Dock attraction as part of its 25th birthday celebrations. The 1964 example of the bass is very similar to Paul McCartney?s. Meanwhile in 2009 Höfner was commissioned by the Liverpool-born legend to produce a 500/1 Backup Bass for him, built to the same specifications as his 1963 model that he uses for all concerts and for recording. Only two of the Backup Basses were made. One is with Sir Paul, and the other was retained by Höfner for occasional exhibiting.
