1967 Hofner Verithin – £799

NEW ARRIVAL   Introduced in 1960 the Verithin, like so many other Hofner models, is clearly inspired by Gibson guitars, and with a hollow body closely resembles the ES330. Then in late ’65 early ’66 they changed the body shape to a sharper Florentine body style, like the Gibson Barney Kessel. Even the cherry red finish is very Gibson like. This example had a Bigsby fitted at some point, and the professionally filled holes are visible just above the tailpiece. Also the back of the neck has been refinished, and doesn’t have the beautiful patina of the body. Other than that, it plays really well, with low action right along the fingerboard. Tonally it’s very versatile and is capable of warm jazz and rich blues, right through to biting rock.
