Hofner Verythin Standard



Flag Handmade in Germany.

The Verythin Standard, first produced in 1960, with its 1.25 inch thinline body is a world class semi-acoustic guitar.

The super thin body is lightweight and extremely comfortable to play. The Standard model features flame maple top, back and sides, a sold spruce centre block for less feedback and good sustain, twin Höfner humbucking pickups for a wide and powerful tone output. The pickups are connected to twin volume and twin tone controls, while there is a tunamatic bridge with a stop tailpiece.

The Verythin is famous for its wide range of tones finding users from modern jazz right through to heavy rock. It is finished in Höfner Brunette, the gentle brown sunburst.

Includes Höfner deluxe case.
