Though a relatively short-lived fad in the '60s and '70s, hollowbody basses are making a comeback because of their vibey hollowbody tone. One of the more iconic hollowbody basses, the Hofner Violin Bass, was brought into the spotlight by Paul McCartney, and the Gibson EB-2 was popular with early British rock bands. If you're looking to integrate a new sound into your playing, the hollowbody bass places a unique stamp on any player's music.
