Hofner 457 S/E1 - 1957
Sorry, this product is sold out!
What a time machine! Strum away on this and it gives you that black and white, grammar phone, simpler times vibe! I was pleasantly surprised with the character of this guitar both harmonically and in terms of the feel. The fat neck just adds to the appeal for me! It’s in great shape and all of the appointments look great in conjunction with the various wood grains. I’ve never seen this model before which features a pickup in the end of the neck embedded in pearloid! Google searches revealed nothing and the pickup looks original to me and sounds really nice as well. Pots and cap have been upgraded and originals are in the case. A rare variant of a Hofner 457 with a spruce top. Comes with its original hard shell case.
