Vintage 1952 Hofner President acoustic Jazz guitar


1952 Hofner President archtop Jazz guitar Model , Brunette finish.

In Good-Very Good condition.
One of the early pre truss-rod examples with smaller headstock.

Serial number  1561

Certainly a collector and very much playable. Very good neck and neck set. Low action. Very straight.  Has had a fret dress and nicely maintained.
A couple of small holes around the end of the fingerboard and top indicates a floating jazz pickup type fitted at some stage. Would be worthy of an original Hofner Jazz pickup refit.

Features, celluloid bound neck, rosewood fingerboard with triple pearl dot markers.
The body has double white/aged cream painted border and look alike binding. Also an indication of it being an early one.
Smaller ornate headstock with classical style post tuners. One side of tuner or tuner strap has been replaced. Original President bridge and the classic Hofner Compensator tailpiece is a refit from a shallow body Hofner. May have once had the longer ended Compensator T/P or early plain trapeze Jazz tailpiece.
A very nice interesting guitar for consideration into your Hofner guitar collection.

Comes with non original but a decent and reliable hardcase.
