      Comments about Hofner Igntion LTD Violin Electric Bass Guitar:

      It's a cheaply made product. I purchased this on the Stupid Deal of the Day. It has plastic tuners and plastic pickups. It's super light due to the very cheap wood it was made from. It's says made in China on the stickers. There are much less expensive basses that are better.

        Comments about Hofner Igntion LTD Violin Electric Bass Guitar:

        Really a nice surprise. Bought this during a SDOTD, not really expecting much. It's was cheap enough I thought; "What have I got to lose?". Well it's exceeded my expectations and I'll be bringing it to our next band practice for sure. Fit and finish is great, action is fine (maybe a touch high but easily adjustable), tone is great with lots of options. Funky tone controls are actually very cool once you get used to them. If I'm going to nitpick, the only thing I'd say is the volume knobs are kinda cheap looking. No big deal, bought some replacements.
        All in all I'd say this is a great bass for the money, even if you pay full price.

                Comments about Hofner Igntion LTD Violin Electric Bass Guitar:

                The finishing is mediocre, I've got the silver sparkle, but no sparkle very flat, I lower the string action to my liking and it buzz quite a bit at high frets, fret ends are surprisingly smooth though, the tone is ok but the volume and tone control is not my cup of tea, it is extremely light but the violin shape middle horn stick in to my chest ( I wear it high), all in all it is a fun bass , but not quite for me.

                      I've been playing bass for two decades and I've owned 10-15 basses, from Squiers to Music Mans. This is the most impressive entry bass I've ever bought. I bought it for my nephew who is starting to play bass. I liked it so much I kept it, and bought him another one. It's not just an excellent first bass, it's an excellent bass altogether.
