Gallery Photos of H64/VB Ignition Beatle Basses In Stock on

If you were wishing to buy a Hofner Beatle bass, but not willing or do not have the funds available to purchase the Hofner Beatle Basses produced in Germany (or purchase an inaccurate replica), the Hofner Ignition Series Beatle bass may just be the ticket for you. It has all the style and appeal of the traditional German Hofner Beatle at a fraction of the price.

I know that many of you are anxious to hear how the Ignition Series bass compares to the Hofner V64 or V62 German produced basses, so please read the following carefully to understand the differences.

Before I proceed, please understand that the Hofner V62, V64, Deluxe, and Cavern basses are hand made in Germany by Hofner, but the Hofner Ignition bass is totally produced in the Orient.

The Hofner Ignition bass does not have any German Beatle bass hardware. The bridge, tailpiece, tuners, pickups, switches, pots, pickguard, and pick up surrounds are all of Chinese or Korean origin.

The German made Hofner Beatle basses all have a "zero" fret, but the Icon series bass does not.

The Ignition series Beatle bass has a spruce plywood top and a maple plywood back. The German produced V62, V64, Deluxe, and Cavern basses all feature premium German spruce tops and German premium maple backs.

The Ignition Series Beatle Bass plus a genuine Hofner hard shell case includes all of these following services from North Coast Music:

  • Thorough inspection for quality, along with neck relief, action, and intonation adjustments all performed at North Coast Music prior to shipping so you can expect your Ignition Beatle Bass to in the upper end of quality for the model
