almost sent it back but glad I didn't
rubbertankboy, 20.06.2021
out of the box it was terrible! the nut was waaaay too high, the set up was all over the place! ding in the front of the guitar (from factory) buzzed a lot! was going to send it back but out of pure laziness could not be bothered with it in mind to fix it myself at some point. so after all the work into it and most importantly FLATWOUNDS! I absolutely love this bass!

You Will Need to Buy a Set of Flatwounds
MC247, 04.03.2021
I didn't believe other people at first, but the strings that come on these basses are literally the worst strings i've ever played on anything so I bought some Pyramid Flatwounds and now it plays and sounds great. It is the only good quality bass that will last at this price point, yes the nut is not great and the bridge is very hard to adjust, but over time you can upgrade it. It really has potential to be a great bass with simple upgrades, would recommend to anyone as it will last as long as you want it too, you really can't go wrong!

A dream...
AlessandroG, 10.03.2021
For a Beatles fan like me, who learned to play instruments just to play their songs, this Höfner Bass is my last new joy... I play guitars, piano and keyboards, but so much I was longing for this symbol of my youth and not only. Sound and esthetic are great, even if it’s a low price compared with the top models, I love it with no doubt. The beautiful shade of sunburst colour is something that I often admire without need to play, but when I play it it’s a dream revival. I love it, just like I love the Beatles.

Received my ignition SE some days ago and tested it on a pair of venues qith my usual gear. love the weight and lenght.
At first i got scared of the not so clear sound but after setting it and a bit of eq on my amp it did sound great.
My new fav for the gigs (i play latinoamerican musics)
