The Höfner Ignition Violin Bass takes inspiration from Höfner's '70s models, offering versatility, articulate sound, and an exquisite playing experience. It features a sublime hollow body which is not only lightweight and comfortable to play, but also delivers exceptional resonance for an immersive, full sound. The top is crafted from spruce, giving you sparkling clarity and delicious dynamics, whilst the maple back and sides enhance each note with glistening brightness. And when you have a rosewood fretboard underneath your fingertips, you can be sure to play flawlessly and with absolute ease.

Providing gorgeous vintage tonal properties, the Höfner Ignition Staple Nickel pickups promise a sound that will pierce through any mix. Their sonic capabilities are reminiscent of the 1960s, reminding us of the legends that have counted on Höfner basses, such as The Beatles' Sir Paul McCartney. Going one step further, the famous Höfner control panel allows you to tailor and finetune your sound. So, you'll have all that vintage goodness but with your unique style.
