Hohner offers a wide range of solidly constructed musical instruments, including harmonicas, drums, and cymbals, and their selection of mid-range guitars is no exception. This model, the HW300G, has a dreadnought style body with a solid mahogany top and mahogany back, sides, and neck. The 14/20-fret rosewood fingerboard has white dot inlay, and the rosewood bridge has white black-dot pins, in contrast with the black body binding and five-stripe rosette.
The high gloss finish top and glossy mahogany back and sides are in very good condition except for a few superficial dings and some buckle bruises on the back. This is really a beautiful instrument, and plays and sounds as good as it looks. The fit and finish of this guitar will exceed your expectations; a guitar built this well with these tonewoods in today’s market would list between $250 and $650, even without a more famous name.
I don’t usually quote on-line reviewers, but I can’t resist throwing in this one from the many enthusiastic comments available: “This guitar is my workhorse. It's the one in the living room that's handy to grab when inspiration strikes, to work out a new song, or to run scales for practice. I have used it miked on stage and I was pleased with its big, dreadnought sound.” You can’t ask much more of a guitar than that at any price.
Buyer pays a flat rate of $45 for shipping to the lower 48 states; shipping costs elsewhere will be negotiated as necessary. Payment by Paypal is preferred; cashiers and personal checks are acceptable, but checks must clear before the guitar will be shipped.
Given the vintage status of this instrument, its return will not be accepted unless it can be shown that it was egregiously misrepresented in this listing. Please check out the pictures and ask any questions you might have before offering to buy it.
Thank you for your interest in this cool guitar.
Payments by Paypal, cashier’s checks, money orders, or personal checks are acceptable, but all payments must clear my bank before the guitar will be shipped. I will CONSIDER reasonable offers, even including installment payments and trade-ins, but generally since I already attempt to price my guitars very competitively, unusual deals must be unusually sweet.
From henceforth [that's how retired English teachers talk], insurance and shipping to the lower 48 states is $55 due to constantly rising shipping costs unless a specific listing says otherwise; shipping costs elsewhere will be negotiated as necessary. I have sold guitars to Russia, Japan, Australia, and over 50 other countries, as well as almost every state in the USA. Since some of my guitars travel thousands of miles, I take care to use lots of packing materials, protect the neck inside the case, and of course de-tune the strings.
I make every effort to describe and illustrate each guitar and case with scrupulous accuracy. However, many of my instruments are well-played vintage items which are many years old, and I am not a luthier. One should assume that any guitar will require some set-up to satisfy your personal requirements, and that not every flaw or ding will be seen/recognized/described in the listing. Thus the return of an instrument will not be accepted unless it can be shown that it was egregiously misrepresented in this listing. Please read the listing carefully, check out the pictures, and ask any questions you might have before offering to buy.
