Item specifics

Condition: Used Type: Acoustic Guitar
Brand: Hofner Sub-Type: Fretted
Right-/ Left-Handed: Right-Handed Size: 4/4
No. of Strings: 6 string
1955 Hofnder Committee. 

Blonde finish, birdseye maple back and sides.

Serial number on paper label inside 2159.  Date written in pencil on the underneath of the top. 27/1/55

The guitar seems in pretty good condition, with the following observations:

3rd (G) tuner replaced.

Original tail-piece replaced with Grimshaw Vibrato tail-piece.

Surface mounted transducer style pickup fitted in front of bridge, leading to end-pin socket.

Neck looks to have been re-set at some point, bridge is low and looks to have been shaved down.

All of these things should be visible in the photos. Let me know if you'd like any more photos from different angles. 

Also included but not pictured is a pick-guard. It's made of clear plastic. Don't know if it's original. Will take a pic if requested.

Just been cleaned up and re-strung with D'addario Chromes, 10 gauge.  Pretty sure it would take 11s.

No case included.

UK postage £20

Europe around £50, but contact me first for an exact price.

Or collection/inspection welcome from Preston PR5. 5 mins from M6, J29.

Any questions, drop me a line.
