Two new Ignition bass guitars announced by Hofner

Both new models feature hollow bodies and Hofner’s famous control panel.

Hofner has announced the release of the Black Club and Sunburst ‘Cavern’ Violin bass guitars to the UK.

Available through exclusive distributor Barnes & Mullins, the new models are part of Hofner’s Ignition range, which has been designed to offer players the authentic Hofner experience and sound at a more affordable price than the handmade German models and Contemporary ranges.

Both new Ignition basses have fully hollow bodies and feature Spruce tops and Flamed Maple back and sides with a high-gloss finish. They are fitted with Hofner’s famous control panel and 70s-style Ignition Staple Nickel pickups for an authentic Hofner sound.

The iconic ‘Cavern’ Violin model features closely spaced pickups, as used on the original 1961 Cavern bass.

Both basses are extremely lightweight and comfortable to play due to their hollow body construction, shorter 30”/76cm scale lengths, 42mm nut widths and rosewood fingerboards.

Both models have a price tag of £359 and are available now from Barnes & Mullins.
