A super rare find is this C 1962 Hofner Colorama II in excellent vintage condition with its original case!
Electronics function flawlessly Neck is straight, frets are excellent and action is low. Some edge wear, tiny nicks and scratches, etc nothing out of the ordinary for a vintage guitar in excellent condition. Awesome vintage vibes!!!
These early bolt on neck Hofners are hollow body and featherweight, as were other early Hofners, Magnatones and similar guitars of this period so it is a joy to play, easy and light, and will really crank with that 60’s Hofner sound.
Exact same electronics were used in the more popular Hofners of the period.
Guitar itself weighs 4lbs 12 oz. Guitar and case weigh 8lbs 7oz together!
Case is excellent and a very rare survivor, made of thin wood with an oilcloth covering and green felt lining (some minor tatters). Has edge wear, as seen in photos, but no structural issues at all, still very strong and sound. It has a super cool vintage look to it. All hinges, hasps and lock work excellent and even the original green “hinge” ribbon is intact!
Gorgeous, rare guitar in outstanding condition!!!
