Hagenau, Germany (April 23, 2012) – Höfner have added the Club Bass model to their very successful Ignition series.

The Club Bass, first produced in 1965, offers a real alternative to the Ignition Violin Bass for those players who want the unique Hofner bass tone but prefer a larger bass guitar.

With a fully hollow body combined with a pair of Höfner 70s style “Staple” pickups players can easily capture that Hofner sound. Fitted with the traditional Höfner control panel, Höfner wooden bridge, pearloid scratchplate and Höfner trapeze tailpiece this bass has full on retro styling. The spruce top and flamed maple back and sides are finished in a dark sunburst reflecting the long heritage of this bass. A left hand version is also available. For those players who want something a little different, lightweight and deep thudding tone the Ignition Club Bass has an amazingly low price point. Now available from Höfner dealers.
