Description

Thought this one was sold, but oh well, these things happen. This is the second Hahn 1229 model that I have had in recent months, both of which were acquired from a very astute customer of mine. The last one was quickly snapped up by Steely Dan co-founder Walter Becker, a man who knows a wee bit about fine guitars himself! The 1229 is an all Mahogany guitar, with a body that is .25" thinner than most T-style guitars contributing to a guitar that is more comfortable to play and a bit lighter in weight, just 6.8 pounds in the case of this guitar. The mahogany construction gives the 1229 a warmer sound with a bit less bite, although there is no mistaking it's tone for anything but a Tele! Like most Hahn guitars I've ever played, this thing resonates like crazy and is quite lively in your hands. The playability and tone are superb. The specs of this beauty include: a chunky soft V-shaped Mahogany neck with depth measurements of .900" at the first fret tapering up to .950" at the 12th fret; a gorgeous dark Rosewood fretboard with a 7.25" to 9.5" compound radius; 6105 frets; a 1.650" bone nut; Budz T pickups; CTS pots; three-way CRL switch; vintage-style Gotoh/Kluson tuners; a Fender bridge plate with Hahn compensated saddles; and a single ply "shorty" pickguard. The overall condition of this guitar is "excellent minus", as it's extremely thin nitro lacquer shows a bit of finish shrinkage in a few spots, primarily on the back of the body. If you look quite closely you will also find a bit of clearcoat wear and several tiny impressions on the body, but overall this guitar looks great and the frets are in terrific condition. It comes with an alternate pickguard and a very nice G&G tweed case. A very unique and desirable piece indeed!
