Cool Red Hofner Ignition

Comments about Hofner Ignition LTD Violin Electric Bass Guitar:

I am a bass player in a group of grey haired old men who play 60s influenced rock. We play out several times a month and practice weekly. We don't make our living playing but are at the point of opening locally for some of the major 60s and later regional and national acts. I have been playing guitar or bass for over 50 years and have gone through many guitars and basses over the years. During the past few months, I have migrated from my American Jazz Bass to a Hofner Icon series B Bass. So when I saw the ad for a red Ignition bass in my FaceBook feed, I had to have it. When I received it, I replaced the strings with a set of LaBella 760FHB2 flat wounds, tweaked the truss rod to take out some relief, and adjusted the bridge height and placement.

After the initial adjustments, I find the intonation to be almost perfect for all strings and certainly as good as any B Bass I have had. My Icon can also stay in tune all night and I have no reason to believe the Ignition will be any different. The band doesn't really play any hard rock so the tone through my Fender Bassmen 250-15 using a heavy pick matches what I need for the style of music we play. Also the bass is light weight due to the hollow body which is good on my old back. And the red color will look super cool on stage.

I can't really think of anything I don't like about it. The range of tone is limited since it doesn't have a tone pot, but that's the Hofner set up and the tone I do want is there. It's not a German Hofner but I can't find any problems in the build or the finish or the performance and it does what I need. As long as I keep playing, if something happened to it, I would buy another to replace it.

    Comments about Hofner Ignition LTD Violin Electric Bass Guitar:

    I'm in a rock band that spreads it's focus from Beatles era to modern so having a large variety of sounds is pretty important to me. I'm upgrading from the Ibanez Micro Bass, which has served me well to build confidence in my abilities to play a bass. However I wished for something with more stage presence and the micro doesn't have a lot of that. This Hofner designed bass is beautiful, plays great, and has a short scale like I need for my smallish hands.

    One of the primary benefits to this design is the large amount of room between the pickups. Coming from the micro bass there wasn't a huge amount of room to maneuver the strings without hitting the pickups. This bass, however, has at least 6 inches of room to play in.

    Comments about Hofner Ignition LTD Violin Electric Bass Guitar:

    beThis is a awesome bass guitar. The construction of it is beautiful, the first thing I noticed is the weight of the guitar, it is not flimsy, or made cheaply, and more importantly, sound is much better than I thought it would be.

    I had a lesser quality one that totally sucked, sounded like a banjo and very light we beautify I must admit, it was beautifu.

    That being said, I do recommend this Hofner, you won't be disappointed.
