Hofner B-bass HI-Series

$369.00Price

From the company that brought you the original Hofner.  They wrote the book on the short scale hollowbody style of electric bass guitar.

In the hands of Sir Paul McCartney, they helped change the world with this design. If you close your eyes and remember all of those classic bass lines filling out and propelling the rock 'n' roll soundtrack, this is that sound. And no one knows that sound sound better than Hofner. There's been a lot of imitators, but only one true original.

 

Don't play an imitation of the sound you're after. Play the real deal, and get it from Guitar Villa.
This bass is not about cutting through, it's about that thump, that pulse, and that ever-present low end push that really can only be achieved with this style of bass guitar. The sound of the short scale hollowbody Hofner Ignition Violin electric bass guitar brings you back to the golden days of rock and roll, but will also help you fit in beautifully within today's folk, indie, jazz, and americana scenes, and so much more.

That's why so many bassists have found their sound using a Hofner Violin bass. And hey, if they're good enough for Paul, they're good enough for us.
One thing that's universally praised about these Hofner basses is that the fit and finish are just about flawless.   Not only that, but the electronics package are as good as you could ask for. Not necessarily always the case with vintage instruments.  You'll get a great playing, great feeling bass with all the vibe of yesterday, but with all the reliability of today.

Please call us with any questions or for an in-hand description. We would be happy to help! Free layaway and financing available on all instruments. We service what we sell and are here for any of your needs.

    Fit, finish, electronics, and playability are all top notch
    One thing that's universally praised about these Hofner basses is that the fit and finish are just about flawless. Not only that, but the electronics package are as good as you could ask for. Not necessarily always the case with vintage instruments. And not bad for a bass that costs about much as you would pay for a vintage equivelant's tuning key. You'll get a great playing, great feeling bass with all the vibe of yesterday, but with all the reliability of today.
