Hofner 456 / 457 Archtop (Circa '60-'62)

Here is a lovely Hofner 456 / 457 Archtop Guitar. Hofner guitars are always tricky to date exactly, however we have narrowed this one down to 1960 to 1962. This Hofner has recently been completely restored. The 3 pickups have been re-wound by Bare Knuckle and now sound fantastic! The body and neck have also been completely cleaned up, really bringing the original finish back to life. The guitar has been professionally setup and now plays wonderfully with a low action. We believe this guitar to be mostly original, although it is difficult to confirm this as the 3 pickup versions are quite rare.

Any questions, please feel free to get in touch.
