Comments about Hofner Ignition Ed Sullivan Show LTD Electric Bass:

As a Beatles fan and a guitar player, the logical first bass is a Hofner. Although the standard is nice, this limited edition has amazing color. It has good quality craftsmanship and "The Ed Sullivan Show" printed on the back of the headstock, which was a nice touch. The sticker on the pick guard is easily removable. Upon delivery, it needs a quick cleaning. You can also hear the electronics move a bit when you carry the instrument, but that's pretty standard with Hofner basses. Other than that, it is well worth the cost.

      Comments about Hofner Ignition Ed Sullivan Show LTD Electric Bass:

      OK so I had to have this bass,I own a 1981 Hofner Beatle Bass and have always been a fan of the violin basses. For a player/Beatle fan its a pretty cool instrument. It does have the slight "hofner Beatle Bass" sound, but not totally. My original thumps more deeply, but still, this little number does a good job and is fun to play. One thing that seems odd, my original has very high action (they are known for this) but this cheap little Ed Sullivan is nice and low, plays awesome. Maybe I got lucky but the flame on the sides and back are really nice. I would definalty suggest someone in the market for a violin bass to look at this one, stay away from the imposters...at least this one could have some good collector value being it has "Ed Sullivan Show" on the back of the headstock. Not the real thing, but Cool bass. I'm happy with it.

          Comments about Hofner Ignition Ed Sullivan Show LTD Electric Bass:

          I'm happy with this bass. The intonation was off slightly so I had it set up and put new strings on it. The tuners and strings are cheap. I'll change the tuners eventually but it sounds great and is easy for me to play. Great for small hands and someone who doesn't want a heavy bass.

              Comments about Hofner Ignition Ed Sullivan Show LTD Electric Bass:

              From a cosmetic the bass looks great!!! However a piece of wood was floating inside which I removed after removing the volume/pick-up control plate. Poor Quality Craftsmanship regarding the internal wiring. Poor soldering and discovered that the one of the pick lead wire was intermittent. Had to re-wire and couple ty-raps to secure wiring worked like champ. Was amaze at the sound. I was disappointed that a user guide/manual or one page diagram was not included explaining the basic switch settings and meanings. This should be included to make sure what the actual switch settings control (i.e. which pickup is on/off, boost, treble etc.)do what it is design to do. I did found information through YouTube.. Overall I was happy with the Bass.. Now if I can find the white/cream knobs to replace the black knobs for the volume controls...YEAH YEAH YEAH
