  1. So I was wandering the depths of craigslist an came upon this Hofner CT Violin Bass in my area. To my surprise it was listed ridiculously cheap! I inquired about it, just to make sure that it was a CT and not an ICON or some other model. When I asked him about it I didn't get a response about the model, so my excitement was slightly tempered. Needless to say I trust the opinions of those on this board much more then some random on craigslist...

    Thinking that's an Icon. I had a CT, and if memory serves, the logo on them is gold not silver. Also had binding around the headstock that I don't think the Icon does. Also, CT has a Zero Fret. Based on those pics, and memory, I'm voting Icon.

    Icon. Notice the wide "ears" to the pickup mounts. The CT and German made Höfners have the smaller mounts.

    It's definately a Ignition or Icon.
