President Acoustic guitar

Page 19 of the 1960 Selmer Catalog

Selmer 1960 Hofner and Futurama catalogue, page 19. Details of the Hofner President acoustic. Both the acoustic, and electric version of the Hofner President (see page 6 of this catalogue) were very popular models in the 1950s and 1960s.

Like it's electric sibling, the acoustic President had a laminated spruce top, maple back and sides, and a maple/mahogany neck. It had the dot-inlaid neck position markers, headstock inlays and compensator tailpiece. Both were available in blonde and brunette finishes, but only the electric version was produced as a thinline model.

1960 UK prices - Hofner President: blonde finish 29 gns.; brunette finish 27 gns.
