Selmer 1960 Hofner and Futurama catalogue. Page 9. Details of Hofner's entry level solid-body, the Colorama. At this stage, the Colorama was by no means a bad guitar, having all of the new features being applied to the rest of the Hofner range. It had one or two 'Super Response' toaster pickups, a set mahogany neck (although this would be replaced by a bolt-on maple neck at least by 1962) and an adjustable truss rod. Compare this guitar to the Colorama featured in the 1964 Selmer Catalogue.
The Colorama were the cheapest electrics included in this Selmer catalogue, at 21 gns. for the single pickup model, and 24 gns. for the dual pickup.
