The Hofner Ignition Violin bass comes at the perfect price for players requiring the classic Hofner sound on a budget.

The original Hofner violin bass became a favorite because it was easy to play, super-comfortable and it had a sound like no other bass. Hofner's Ignition Violin Bass features a select Spruce top with flamed Maple back and sides and a pair of Hofner humbucking bass pickups for that "classic" sound.

The Hofner Ignition Violin Bass has a fully hollow body and of course comes with the famous Hofner control panel, wooden bridge and Hofner style tailpiece.
The Hofner vintage control panel features individual volume controls per pickup, on/off switches for the bass and treble pickups and a Solo Boost switch. Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about Hofner Ignition Left-Handed Violin Bass Guitar:

    I'm enjoying my very first Hofner! Looking to buy one of the better models now. Wasn't sure if I'd like the body and feel of a short scale....sooo much fun though.
