1995 Höfner Custom 6-String

Chances are you’ve never seen one like this before as its original owner, from whom I got it, tells me that he special-ordered this guitar to be custom built for him while he was overseas, years ago. It’s essentially got the body of a Höfner “Beatle Bass” but it’s s 6-string guitar, complete with all the Höfner bells and whistles. Volume control for each pickup and an inscrutable switching system, beats the hell out of me how you’re sposeta use them but they all definitely do something and both pickups most def work for a fact, and they sound terrific. It’s even got that very special Höfner tremolo, works with the same German precision as all the machinery we know so well that comes from over there. He originally paid $2500 to have this guitar made for him and that’s in 1995 dollars, quite different from today's. So here’s the hitch: while the neck is real straight the action is pretty high, and for an obvious reason; the neck is a bit loose in its dovetail joint. For this reason the price is astoundingly low, a true bargain. The owner put it away years ago, actually forgot about it and it’s now closet-cleaning time so someone else’s loss is going to be your gain. Fix it yourself if you’re so inclined, or take it to your fave local repair person; either way, it’s still a total steal. Got ancient strings on it, original for all I know and no case but hey, you can impress all your friends and yourself with a very cool Höfner guitar that not a one of them can ever possibly match.
