An affordable version of the famous Hofner violin bass.

With authentic details inspired by the original, the Hofner Ignition Series Vintage Violin Left-Handed Bass makes the legendary violin bass available to the rest of us. Don't get the idea that this a just a "nowhere man" look-alike. This quality instrument features a real spruce top and beautiful flamed maple back and sides. The semi-hollow body and set neck will give you the warm, round tone you expect from the violin bass. Rosewood fretboard, sunburst finish. Includes case.

  • Fantastic Bass

    As reviewed by DLS on 7/12/2010

    From the moment I grabbed this fine instrument out of the box it has played like a dream. Hofner Icon is great. Tone, feel, action, everything. I will buy some flat wounds for it one day, but for now the round wounds work and sound just great. Please listen to me, if you are on a budget and even if you are not buy this bass. I don't believe you will ever regret it. The folks at Guitar Center in Naperville IL were a pleasure to work with, thanks guys. I got it shipped to me in three working day. I could not be happier with it. It looks beautiful. The finish is flawless and it is just down right great to look at too. Thanks again to Guitar Center.

  • Nice groove bass, good for first-timer

    As reviewed by Luke Brogden on 2/21/2008

    I'm switching from guitar to bass in my current band and this is the instrument that's helping me doit. It's a little smaller scaled and the violin body is smaller than your traditional bas, which is perfect for someone leary of taking on the task of bassmaster. I don't have a quality amp yet and have just been running it through PAs, but I still notice a very warm, full tone. I think it'd be ideal for garage rock, punk reggae, dub, stuff of that nature. Or Beatles covers if you're playing Paul McCartney.

  • Nice

    As reviewed by Fab4Fan on 11/10/2009

    I purchased this for my 13 y/o son who is really into the Beatles. It is a very nice guitar. He can't wait for the other items needed to play...amp, picks, case. The guitar gets 5 stars but for the price, there should be at least a plastic or fabric case and/or some picks included in the purchase for the sake of good customer service. We checked the box twice and apparently everything is separate causing me to have to do even MORE just to get him to be able to play his first note! My next purchase will be in a store in person so a human being can properly advise me.
