Question about bass guitars?

Okay, I'm looking to buy my first bass guitar soon. I have no real musical experience before, but I'm looking to get into music and the bass has always interested me.
I was searching for a bass and I came across one that I immediately loved the look of:

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Hofner-Icon-Series-Lefty-Vintage-Violin-Bass?sku=515042&src=3SOSWXXA

(yes, I play left handed)
My question is this...since this is a semi hollow bass, would it sound much different from a solid one? Will I be unable to play anything ska or punk like with it simply because of how it's made?
I just need to know if I'll be limiting my playing range right off the bat, because I really would love that bass.
And if anyone has any suggestions for a better starting bass, feel free to share them.
Thanks.

Here's the deal:
The sound will be exceptionally different to a trained ear. If you want to do ska or punk, a Fender would probably have the best, most traditional sound, but you can play any style on just about any bass. This hollow, violin base would be for something more folksy or earthy sounding... but you can play anything in it. You won't limit any playing range, you can play all the notes in any style on this, but they will sound with some more reverb, thanks to the body.
Slaps will be much more resonant, normal plucks not so much. Go to a store like guitar center and see if they have it in a respect you can try them out.
