Hofner / V3 / 1961 / Red / Guitar
This is a great chance to buy a piece of 60's nostalgia, an iconic guitar often associated with the Mersetbeat bands. This is a one owner guitar, and I even have photos of the owner playing the guitar in his band, The Plainsmen, in the Redcar and Middlesborough areas between 1961 and 1963. The guitar is in very good condition considering it's 50 years old, all the electrics work well and the neck is very comfortable with a good low action. One machine head has been changed and the body has been touched up where some of the finish has come off, but the guitar has lost none of it's 60's character. It comes in a non original hard case which has the Hofner logo nicely painted on in gold paint.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
