The Golden Hofner

Page 3 of the 1960 Selmer Catalogue

1960 Selmer guitar catalogue. Page 3. The short-lived Golden Hofner was the finest electric guitar in the 1960 catalogue, with it's carved spruce top, flamed maple sides, Grenadilla ebony fingerboard, pearl inlays and engraved gold plated hardware. It was also the largest, with a body width of 21 1/4" at its widest point. Typical of high-end Hofner guitars, it had the characteristic frondose headstock shape. Like the rest of the guitars in this catalogue it was fitted with the thinner "Slenda-nek", adjustable truss rod and new "Super Response" pickups.

Two models are described: the full-bodied (3 1/8") Golden Hofner, no. 523, and the thinline version, no. T523 - both listed with a UK price of 95 gns.

A sister model, the acoustic Golden Hofner, is also shown on page 17.

The superb Golden Hofner is the combination of years of experience in guitar design
