Hofner Acoustic HA-CS7 Relic Model

Product number: HA-CS7-RLC
Hofner Acoustic Classic Steel String Guitar - Model CS7 Relic



Flag Handmade in Germany

A special ‘relic’ version of the HA-CS7 steel string acoustic created by our master in the violin making department, this instrument is beautifully aged to look authentically vintage but with all the advantages of a brand new guitar. The truly vintage look and feel of the remarkable aged finish is achieved by the use of very special and secret recipes.

A meticulous selection of wood as well as a newly developed bracing system has led to a wonderfully rich and dynamic sound. The Mi-Si® active pickup system is discreetly fitted without any opening in the sides to preserve the subtle and natural aesthetics. It does not use a battery – it employs a new technology that enables you to charge the system in only one minute, giving you a playing time of about 16 hours.

This quality, handmade model is completely compliant with CITES regulations and is an instrument of superior tonal qualities.
