The Ignition Special Edition (SE) basses are based on the Höfner violin basses from the 1970s. In contrast to the Contemporary series, the Ignition basses have a hollow body. In addition to the classic control panel with Tea Cup knobs, they are equipped with a wooden bridge and trapeze tailpiece and carry the traditional Höfner logo on the body. The new Cavern Version (HI-CA-SE-SB) of our Ignition bass offers the famous pick up spacing from 1961 in addition to the features already mentioned. All our Ignitions (SE) come with a certificate of authenticity and the famous BASSMAN sticker.
