Here’s a rare and unique Hofner! I believe this is a model # 4572 and it dates form somewhere in the late 60s or early 70s. A Verythin or Ultrathin maybe? I dunno as it seems this one was never sold new in the states. A very cool double cutaway instrument!  The top looks to be spruce while the back is very pretty piece of flame maple. The neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. Dual Hofnaer 511 singlecoil pickups deliver nice tone. A Bigsby like vibrato and trademark Hofner bridge give you some wild effects. The finish is sunburst and it looks very hip. A fun guitar for not a ton of cash!

This Hofner has nice vintage feel. The frets are low and tiny like a Mosrite. Not a blues bender’s guitar but great for fast chording. The pickups have a distinctive bright tone. This guitar looks nice for its age and shows light to average pick, clearcoat and belt scratches and an average amount of dings. Still very nice looking. Comes in a very cool and presumably original molded hardshell case.

A pretty cool guitar. A newer Asian made Verythin will cost you just a little less but won’t have the unique tone and vibe this one will. A wild sounding guitar! Why grab anything new?  SOLD!
