Lovely old Hofner 173, circa 1963. This one was originally a vinyl-covered guitar but it has been refinished by someone who didn’t do this for a living. It still has a cool vibe though and looks even better after a few beers!  Awesome red pearloid pickguard looks deluxe and all three pickups have been rewound on this one. At some stage in the future, I’m thinking, all Hofner pickups will eventually be rewound as they all have that inherent problem of the tape coming off and the wires disintegrating. This little beauty is set up and playing really good. There’s a nice decal on the headstock from the original shop it came from too. Nice guitar. Comes with a gig bag
