Comments about Hofner Ignition Club Bass with Case:

I own 2 of these Sunburst and Black. I have Labella Flats on the Sunburst and Roundwounds on the Black. FIRST let me say these are VERY playable and useful in most rock/classic rock/blues/jazz situations. They are VERY different if you are a solid body/slap/funk bassist. You can do it but it won't feel the same because they weigh nearly nothing and take some getting used to as the neck is VERY small. They require ALOT of setup out of the box. On BOTH I had to dremel the bridge down alot to get the action low enough. Now they play like butta'!! You can spend the extra $$$ for the CT version but those have a sound block and don't sound quite the same, the build quality is better and the pickups are different. HOWEVER if you are on a budget you can get ALL the same stuff out of these basses. Once you get the action/trussrod/and controls sorted out, you'll be surprised at how versatile they can be. I have over 20 asst Fender/Gibson etc. basses and I've been using these 2 for almost everything and get nothing but compliments on the tone. Just remember be READY to do some serious setup work, take some meat off the bridge to get the action nice and low and you'll find it to be a keeper. Almost forgot the case looks nice in the pics and it would be better than a gig bag but don't expect anything of quality. Both of mine one latch doesn't latch and are pretty shoddily built.

Comments about Hofner Ignition Club Bass with Case:

Love these Hofners. Have the Violin and Club Bass. With flatwounds they have a very deep Bass sound. Can be made to almost sound like a upright, Tapewound strings sound great to. These are hard to find and get...I was backordered for 4 months and still had to raise a stink to get mine....Shame they are not more out there in stock...You don't know what you are missing until you play one with flatwounds...I will never go back to Fender...
