Hofner Ignition Special Edition Violin Bass in Black

1 item left

Based on Hofner's violin basses from the 19070s, the Ignition Special Edition bass has that same old school look and tone but in a modern, affordable bass. This bass has a fully hollow construction which gives it a woody tone with a punchy midrange, similar to that of an upright bass and is picked up through the two Hofner staple pickups. It also has a short scale length at 30" which gives it a looser string feel for more comfortable fretting as well as a deeper, rounder sound.
The Ignition Special Edition is full of vintage-style appointments to match its tone. Appointments include a wooden saddle with trapeze tailpiece, control panel with Teacup knobs, a classic Hofner logo on the body and the iconic sunburst finish.
