The Höfner Ignition-Bass is based on the Höfner violin basses from the 1970s. Just like the role model (and in contrast to the contemporary sister model) he has a hollow resonance body and of course with the famous Höfner Control Panel, the bridge made of wood and the tailpiece in Höfner architectural style. The Höfner Ignition Violin Bass is at the perfect price level for bass players who need the classic Höfner sound for a low price.

CITES regulations concerning the export of items containing certain woods affect any guitar sold ouside of the European Union and which contains any quantity of either Rosewood or Bubinga.  In these cases, an additional charge of £80.00 will be levied per species after the sale to pay for the required re-export certificate.  There will be a delay in dispatching any guitar containing either Bubinga or Rosewood of up to 4 weeks while we obtain the necessary certification for export. As the charge is per species, where a guitar contains both Bubinga AND Rosewood, the charge is doubled to £160.00.  We will contact you following your purchase of any guitar containing a controlled wood and advise of the charge once you have placed the order.  You can make payment for the charge by sending a Paypal payment to us at: sales@fxpedal.co.uk. 

Note that CITES only applies to guitars containing Rosewood or Bubinga that are being exported outside the European Union.  Guitars being delivered with the United Kingdom or in the European Union will be dispatched as normal.
