Hofner Committee (acoustic)

Page 18 of the 1960 Selmer Catalogue

Selmer 1960 Hofner and Futurama catalogue, page 18. Details of the acoustic version of the Hofner Committee. Like the Golden Hofner on the previous page, the acoustic Committee was a very fine large body guitar, in all ways (with the obvious exception of the controls) identical to its electric equivalent, on page 4. The body, though 1/2" smaller than the Golden Hofner, was still 17 1/2" across at the lower bout, and the headstock had the same 'magnificent' frondose silhouette, with mother-of-pearl inlays. The Committee had been around since at least 1954 but the new (as of 1960) Slenda-nek with adjustable truss rod was available for the first time in 1960.

The construction consisted of a (according to this catalogue page) carved pine top (though actually spruce) with maple back and sides, a maple/mahogany five-piece neck, and rosewood inlaid fingerboard.

The acoustic version was 15gns. cheaper (UK pricing) than the electric model (blonde finish: 50gns. vs 65 gns.; brunette : 48gns. vs 63 gns.)

As is the case with the Golden Hofner, the acoustic version is not available as a thinline, just as a 3" deep full body.
