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.

    Working on the sound with this one. Not too many choices I find. Maybe some flatwound strings. I don't know why I didn't try one out at GC first.
