Can Buy Me Bass!

A genuine Höfner Ignition Violin Bass in black or Vintage Sunburst, also available as lefthand model, for only €245 Eur! Höfner Ignition Violin Bass Hot Deal

This legendary instrument usually goes by the name "Beatle Bass". The German guitar brand Höfner introduced the model in the mid 50s - and Paul Mc Cartney later turned it into a legend. So if you are looking for Mc Cartney's Beatles-esque signature tone - look no further!

Wanna Hold This Bass? So far, a genuine violin bass didn't come cheap - on a budget you had to settle for a copy (not to mention the out-of-reach prices for a vintage model). But no more - the new Höfner Ingnition Series makes the real McCoy affordable!

Please, please me: The Ignition has all the features that turned this unusual bass into a legend. The body is made out of maple with a spruce top, the short-scale neck has a rosewood fretboard with 22 frets and the 2 Höfner Humbucking Pickups deliver the classic tone. A nice side effect of its construction is the low weight - this bass won't give you back problems. We even have a left-hand version available, in case you want to go all the way ... but make sure you get the signature dance moves right!

With this exclusive Hot-Deal, you can now get a Höfner-branded bass at an entry level price - just like in the old days, when Paul snapped up the bass in Hamburg at the beginning of his career. Yours truly, for only €245!
