The Selmer 1966 catalog contains 15 pages of Hofner guitars; this page details the Hofner features of these instruments: Thinline body style, "Slenda-Nek" (i.e. with an adjustable truss rod), "Nova-Sonic" (Hofner 511, or 'staple') pickups, micro-matic bridge and Bigsby tremolo.
Now, as always Hofner lead the field in guitar design. Of primary importance is the wonderful Hofner "Slenda-Nek", standard on all models; these necks are the thinnest ever. But a thin neck must also be strong, and to this end the "Slenda-Neks" have internal metal truss rods making them the strongest ever. The truss rod is adjustable by a simple screw mechanism in the head which makes it possible to take up any player in the neck and is the final answer to warping.
Note also the Hofner Micro-Matic bridge and Bigsby tremolo tailpiece are both available as upgrades for older Hofner (and other) models.
