Nice flamed old front (&back) of a German Hofner archtop guitar, approx 1960 NOS

GERMANY

£144

I bought some stuff from a old Luthier here in Germany. Here I offer a beautiful front and back of an E- guitar. I guess it is the body of a Hofner or Framus guitar, as the Luthier had many other new necks and bodys of Hofner Guitars. It was made in the 1960s in Germany. (No china stuff, of course!) Please make sure that you see all the photos. Please see my other auctions with old necks and bridges. The length of the front is approx. 48, 5cm (19inch). The lower bow has 16 5 / 8inches (42cm) ... more
