This is a Hofner Beatle bass. Taking a lead from their '60s violin bass models the Ignition violin bass guitars from Hofner let you get your hands on one of the world's iconic guitars. In contrast to the HCT HI-BB-TBK, 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. We sell these equipped with smooth flatwound strings and cream tea-cup gold top knobs, just like Paul's infamous bass from years ago! Hard shell case available - we will not ship without the case option. Call us for details.
