Product Description

Full Description

A dazzling build

One of the most compelling features of this bass is the stunning hollow construction. It comes with a whole host of tonal and practical benefits that promise a truly mesmerising sound, whether you're in the studio or on stage. This hollow-body build captures the natural tones of the flamed maple back and sides and the spruce top, retaining every touch of definition and teaming it with beautiful resonance. Better still, it is also comfortably lightweight, so you can play for hours and hours without that dreaded shoulder strain.


As well as having such a spectacular sea of resonance enhancing your sound, the maple back and sides will ensure you're not hindered by any muddy feedback that is typically associated with hollow-body instruments. Maple offers glistening articulation and wonderful brightness that team perfectly with the rich tonal properties of the hollow construction.

Exceptional clarity

Complementing the maple body is a stunning spruce top. It is exceptionally versatile and offers a balanced, articulate sound with incredible dynamics. Whatever your style, whatever technique you use, perform confidently knowing each and every note will flow from the strings with excellent volume and definition behind them.

Back to the '60s

They're a Hofner staple, so you know you can rely on them. Hofner Ignition Staple Nickel pickups are loaded at the neck and bridge for a '60s-inspired sound. Prepare for a massive, classic, and beautifully vintage tone. And thanks to the famous Hofner control panel, which includes EQ controls and a volume dial for each pickup, you can be sure to be instantly recognisable. Sculpt your sound with precision and adjust it quickly and easily without ever disrupting your performance. You'll have a premium bass tone at an affordable price.
