Catalog page detailing the Hofner Ambassador; a double Florentine cutaway guitar, on the surface almost identical to the newly designed Verithin 66, although actually with a slightly deeper and slightly narrower body. The image shown here is the same image used in the 1965/1966 Selmer catalog, and shows the Ambassador fitted with Hofner Nova-Sonic (or Hofner Staple) pickups. But by this stage these had been discontinued, and the Ambassador was offered with a choice of two pickups: Hofner bar pickups or (at a 6gns premium) American-made double-pole De Armond pickups (shown inset).
The Hofner Ambassador De-Luxe is now also available. Fitted with two of the world-famous American De Armond pick ups. These double-pole models are finely designed to the most exacting standards, giving you the correct frequency response on each string – plus higher sensitivity than ever before.
These fantastic pick ups, plus fine Hofner craftsmanship, given all-round sound comparable to any other guitar on the market. Proved to be popular! What more could any player ask for with these two great names linked together. Hofner and De Armond
