Semi-Hollow Bass

Back in the '60s, Paul McCartney made the Höfner violin bass a bestseller. Soon after, the concept of sound changed: the bass guitar (partly thanks to McCartney) was no longer the dull, thudding background instrument: it made its way more and more into the foreground. Since shortscale bass guitars like the one at hand were less suitable for this new style, the violin bass was almost forgotten.

Today, however, it is enjoying a comeback. People are discovering its suitability for creating more subtle music (as well as together with acoustic instruments), through its ability to round off the sound.

And some more good news: the Höfner Ignition Beatles Bass is still highly affordable.
