1961 Selmer Melody Maker advertisement for a series of imported Hofner and Futurama solid body guitars available in the UK, circa November 1961
Selmer were the UK and Commonwealth Hofner distributor and also imported guitars badged with their own Futurama branding. The Hofner Colorama, V2 and V3 were all newly designed and are shown here (for the first time?) with their bolt-on necks and Fenderesque headstocks. Note the Hofner Solid bass still has the older headstock style with set neck - but is shown with the new Diamond logo pickups.
