***SOLD*** Hofner ‘B-Bass’ Violin short scale bass (ignition series). Immaculate!


Out of stock



This bass is in immaculate condition and plays great!!!!

I’ve played loads of very expensive vintage Hofners, and this (imho) is easily as good as any of them!  Playability, finish and tone are second to none, and it’s a fully hollow-body just like the originals.  Consequently it’s an extremely lightweight bass

It’s currently strung up with very expensive Pyramid Gold flatwound strings – the ultimate ‘Beatle Bass’ setup, great for jazz too!  If you choose to re-string with round-wounds (like in the video below), you’ll be surprised at the range of tones available.
