1960 brochure for Selmer, London. Monochrome. 9" x 5.5". Selmer were the UK distributors of the German Hofner range of guitars, with most models being specific to Selmer and the UK. This catalogue features numerous early electric guitars, basses, acoustic guitars and accessories spanning 32 pages. A number of the guitars listed are available both as acoustic and electric instruments: the Golden Hofner, Committee, President and Senator. Two Selmer models, the Triumph and Diplomat are also included, though both are actually Hofner-made. Two completely non-Hofners guitars are included though, the Futurama 2 and Futurama 3 solid-body electrics; these were produced by Czechoslovakian maker CSHN, and badged for Selmer and the UK Market.
Selmer's range of parts and accessories are in the final few pages of the catalogue: pickups, tailpieces, strings, plectra, straps and guitar polish.
