Item 454 - 1959 Hofner Catalog 382 (Jan 2012)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $428.40


1959 Hofner electric guitar with original tweed case. The pickups are stamped with the ‘Hofner’ logo. In very good condition, with rubbing and wear from use, some surface loss to the edges, and scattered dings and chips to the body. Original tweed case is in very good condition. Rarely seen on this side of the Atlantic, the ‘Super Solid 3’ guitar was sold by Selmer in the UK and other Commonwealth markets. In Europe, it was marketed as the ‘Model 173,’ with a different bridge and double-dot inlays, as opposed to the ‘bar’ inlays seen on this example. RRAuction COA.
