Vintage guitars for sale: Hofner

Hofner are perhaps Europe's best-known guitar brand, hailing from Germany - with some small amount of production in Spain. The brand is most famous for the electric acoustic guitars of the 1960s, most notably the Violin bass made famous by Paul McCartney who played one with the Beatles, and still to this day, the widely used Club, President, Verithin and Senator models, and the exceptional Hofner Committee, early examples of which have a hand-carved top.

Models to look out for: early 1960s examples of the Committee, Violin bass, President, both guitar and bass, and Verithin, again both guitar and bass.
