Guitar makers have advertised in music magazines such as Down Beat, Guitar Player and very many more. Some manufacturers advertised widely (Guild, Gibson, Fender) but many more didn't and adverts are few and far between. Here are some of my favourite ads out of the ones i've seen.

Old body of a guitar, probably Hofner, German Made approx. 1960 NOS

GERMANY

£60

I bought some stuff from a old Luthier here in Germany. Here I offer a body of a guitar. I guess it is the body of a Hofner 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. The front was made of solid wood. The neck is missing. There is a thin crack at the front. Please see my other auctions with old necks and bridges. The length of the body is approx. 51cm ... more
