Produktnummer: H457/12-N-0

Höfner 457 12 string model in natural finish.



Flag Handmade in Germany.

Hofner 457 12 string model in natural finish. A classic 12 string electric guitar based on the old Höfner 457 model from the 1970s but brought fully up to date. This guitar produces those classic 12 string tones famous on many famous recordings from the 1960s onwards. Handmade in Germany using only top quality tone woods and hardware. 

It features a spruce top and flamed maple back and sides, all finished in a subtle semi-matt natural lacquer. It is fitted with a pair of Höfner "large" humbuckers, twin volume and a single tone control. 12 mini Schaller tuners are employed on the headstock for accurate tuning in the limited space of a 12 string head. The centre block ensures good sustain and prevents feedback.

Few manufacturers produce a 12 string electric of this outstanding quality and style making this guitar an obvious choice for the advanced player.

Includes a Hofner Deluxe case.
