    Product Description

    Here's what Höfner say about the The Ignition Special Edition bass...

    The Ignition Special Edition (SE) basses are based on the Höfner violin basses from the 1970s. In contrast to the Contemporary series, the Ignition basses have a hollow body. In addition to the classic control panel with Tea Cup knobs, they are equipped with a wooden bridge and trapeze tailpiece and carry the traditional Höfner logo on the body. The new Cavern Version (HI-CA-SE-SB) of our Ignition bass offers the famous pick up spacing from 1961 in addition to the features already mentioned. All our Ignitions (SE) come with a certificate of authenticity and the famous BASSMAN sticker.
