A Gak Overview of the Hofner Ignition Violin Bass (Sunburst, Left Handed)

Taking a lead from their 70s Violin Bass models, the Hofner Ignition Violin Bass guitars let you get your hands on one of the world's iconic guitars. In contrast to the HCT model this version has a fully hollow body and of course comes with the famous Hofner control panel, wooden bridge and Hofner style tailpiece. The Hofner Ignition Violin bass comes at the perfect price point for players requiring the classic Hofner sound on a budget.

The Left handed model can only be purchased in Sunburst

    Great item, price and service

  • Darren Hickman


    I have a Fender Jazz and a Longhorn and to be very honest and absolutely no disrespect they are class pieces of kit by world renowned guitar specialist, I prefer the Hofner BB Violin Bass left-hand, I wanted something that was a bit different from the normal and saw this style then read a lot of write-ups and every one said what a good guitar they are, it's brilliant, wasn't sure what to expect other than actually getting up close and personal, for the money is an amazing sound (using a Fender 60 amp), well made, very light great to look at, really liking the short neck as well, a very comfortable Guitar, going to be a very very long time before I pick up the other guitars, probably while I'm waiting for new strings for my Hofner Violin Bass, enjoy.
