Hofner 1967 guitar catalogue
Fine professional guitars and electric basses
This 16 page catalogue was produced for the US market, and prices are included in dollars. With the enormous worldwide importance of the Beatles at this time, the endorsement of Paul McCartney pushed basses right to the front of the companys considerations and indeed this catalogue. Hofner had of course made very many other instruments for a very long time, but then, and now, they were best known for the 500/1 violin bass.
One interesting development in mid 1960s guitar manufacture was the inclusion of effects circuitry within the guitar itself. By 1967 this was not especially new, but along with Vox, Hofner were one of the first companies to widely offer guitar effects across a wide range of their guitar line.
The 1967 Hofner Fine professional guitars and electric basses catalogue featured the following instruments. Click on the images for full size versions, or click on the model names below for more about each instrument
