1963 Hofner President E2 Thin Brunette – £899

NEW ARRIVAL  Hofner guitars have become very collectable, and represent a great way of buying a cool vintage archtop without paying a high price.

This example features a Lyre tailpiece and very desirable ‘Diamond Logo’ 510 pickups with four rotary controls. As well as being a great looking guitar, it’s really versatile. It has a great tone, perfect for jazz, blues and swing, right through to rockabilly and rock ’n’ roll. The guitar’s in very good condition, all original apart from upgraded ‘double cuff’ tuners, with some great looking lacquer checking, just a few scuffs, and no cracks or repairs.
