Comments about Hofner Ignition Club Bass with Case:

Great fun to play, wide tonal palette. Controls (switching) are legendarily strange, but you get used to it. The finish, set-up and intonation were right on out of the box, but oddly, one of the machine heads had a loose headstock mounting and needed to be tightened up.....so check the hardware. I put on Schaller straplocks. Stock strings were immediately replaced with d'addario med. scale black tapewounds. Sounds great and plays like butter! (All my basses have 'em) Comfortable to play seated; Standing, it is very light and does have a bit of neckdive, but that might be remedied with a different strap. The custom fitted case is mid-grade but very fitting, and has a humidity gauge inside! Semi-hollow body allows it to be played and heard w/o amp, but you won't be heard if you are playing with anyone else unamped. This Hofner Ignition Club with case is a great deal, and has a super cool vibe...IMHO, not just another Hofner (or knockoff) "Beatle Bass", but way, way cooler!....and everyone isn't just waiting for you to launch into old Beatles tunes.

    Brings back memories. I am happy to say this is just as good as my old and original one. The price was a bargain too. The way it feels, sounds and plays is amazing. I love this bass
