Hofner Congress Acoustic guitar

Page 21 of the 1960 Selmer Catalog

Selmer 1960 Hofner and Futurama catalogue, page 21. Details of the Hofner Congress acoustic guitar. The Congress was one of Selmer's best-selling guitars in the UK from 1958 and throughout the 1960s. In contrast to most of the other Hofner archtops (i.e. the Committee, President and Senator) it had no electric equivalent; there was no Congress with pickups fitted.

It did, however, come with some of the new features appearing on all Hofner guitars from 1960: the thin "Slendernek" and adjustable truss rod.

It was also only available in brunette finish (no blonde) at a price of 14 gns.
