This beautiful specimen is a rare electro-acoustic archtop guitar meticulously crafted by the master luthiers at Hofner Guitars in Germany. This particular model highly collectible and shows a host of unique features: it has NO Hofner logo on the headstock, which was rather unusual for this period. It also features a three-pickup configuration and a plethora of switching options, allowing for incredible tonal versatility. The acoustic resonance of this guitar is massive - it has a loud voice that is smooth, warm and round, absolutely perfect for jazz, blues, country and folk. Paired with the set of balanced, hand-crafted pickups, this guitar sits perfectly in the mix, whether it be for use on stage or in the studio.
In EXC condition with checking and dings throughout, a separation of the binding and body wood on the front and the back of the body, by the heel. There is a crack on one side of the heel, a dime-sized ding on the back by the heel, light hardware patina and finish / lacquer streaks on the back of the body. Please take a look at the photos for a better idea of the condition of this instrument. It plays and functions perfectly! Sounds AMAZING! A true piece of vintage sonic mastery.
