With the Hofner Ignition Cavern Violin Bass, seen here with a Sunburst finish, you get a budget-friendly modern take on one of the most iconic bass guitars ever created.

Classic Hofner Sound, Budget Friendly Price

In contrast to the popular Hofner Contemporary series, the Ignition lineup basses feature a classic hollow body design, which adds a natural resonance to its voice when played.

Hofner Ignition Cavern Violin Bass, Sunburst Highlights

  • Violin-style electric bass
  • Classic Early 60s design, with pickups at the Neck and Middle positions
  • Inspired by Paul McCartney's famous "Cavern" bass of 1961
  • Hollow body design, with Flame Maple back and sides and a Sitka Spruce top
  • Classic Sunburst finish
  • Sleek 3-piece Maple/Beech/Maple neck, capped with a Rosewood fingerboard
  • Two Hofner Ignition "Staple" pickups, with classic control set

Hollow Body Bass Guitar

The back and sides are created from Flame Maple, whilst the top piece is Spruce - just like its 1960s forebears - and the whole thing has been given a stylish Sunburst finish for good measure.

In addition to this, the scale length of the bass is 30" - shorter than the more traditional bass size of 34" - offering a more comfortable playing experience, alongside a deeper, rounder bass sound.

Vintage-Style Appointments

To complete the vintage experience, this bass features appointments such as a wooden sadle, vintage-sounding "Staple" pickups, a trapeze tailpiece, and even the classic 3-switch electronics panel

So, if you'd like to experience the classic "Cavern"-style Hofner Violin Bass the way it was during the 1960s, then this is the bass for you!
