Hofner (Höfner) / 175 Galaxie / 1963 / White Cream / Guitar For Sale
In late 1962 Hofner introduced a more advanced guitar than the 172/173 models that had been their flagship solid guitars up to that time. The new 175 model featured an off-set waist body with sharply pointed cutaway curves, three pickups, and a built-in vibrato tailpiece. The bolt-on neck was one-piece maple, with celluloid strip fret-markers (some erased due to the age), and binding to the edge of the fingerboard. The most radical feature on the guitar however was the controls for the electric
Production of the 175 lasted for less than 18 months that is why it is so hard to find.
The guitar is in a really good shape. It has been professionally re-freated and the bridge is new (modern Hofner made in Germany) . It seems the neck has been repainted. Rest of the hardware is original. Vinyl cover is almost perfect but more cream than white due to the age. Electronic is working perfectly (new wires were installed maintaining the original pick ups)
the guitar is sent with the modern case in the pictures.
