The Hofner Ignition Violin Bass takes inspiration from Hofner'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.
