Hofner / President / 1957 / Guitar For Sale

Amazing archtop Hofner President from 1957. Plays and sounds great, low action, no buzz. Some wear and chip, but in very good condition for a 60+ years old guitar. It is the same model that George Harrison used in the early days. Even Jimmy Page in the fifthees (with his skiffle band) used it. It's a true masterpiece.
The guitar has installed a vintage and rare 1956 Fuma manufactured Hofner Air Coil pickup Type 1505 Gr (early 512) with integral volume control. No pickguard.
Hardcase included.
