This model was regarded by players of the sixties as Hofners best offering in solid guitars. It seems as if everybody I meet from that era had one at some time or another and still have a soft spot for them. This one had a piece of the scratchplate broken off by the jack socket which is a common complaint as the socket is mounted into the plate with no reinforcing to take the pressure. A new piece has been grafted on with a steel plate underneath to reinforce it.Otherwise the guitar is in pretty good condition and all of the switches and controls work fine. That's an achievement in itself as there are so many of them.
