  Hofner 450 DeLuxe.
   

#108   Hofner 450 DeLuxe.       

This lovely late 70's/early 80's guitar has been in a private collection in Germany since new.   I acquired it directly from that collection and it is still like new.

The 450 was Hofner's longest running archtop from 1954 - 1984.   There was a cutaway version from 1961 - 70 but it was the non-cutaway style that survived.   Initially it was a budget model, plain and simple.    Later it was re-designed with a more modern construction with an updated body shape styled closely on Gibson's ES-150.

Made entirely of Maple with laminated top, back and sides, the neck of this guitar is  made of Hard Rock Maple which is still used for all current Hofner archtops.

  D'Angelico.  NYS-2FH.   CUSTOM.
   

#099  NYS-2FH     2012.   Made to Order.   1 of 1

Made to my personal spec.  Perfect! 

The NYS-2 is the small body New Yorker at 15.5" wide, 2.75"deep with a 24.75" scale.   

I personally prefer this size  -  it is comfortable, lightweight and easy to play, retaining all the tone, depth and character of the full sized models when amplified.

The catalogue NYS has a mini humbucker (and its a very good guitar)  but I wanted the tonal spectrum of a full sized humbucker.  It really brings this guitar alive.     Additionally it is finished in Custom Violinburst, with body mounted controls and a solid, carved Ebony pickguard.   It looks stunning and its tone is amazing.  It is the only one in this spec.

Price 4350     Stunning

  D'Angelico.  VESTAX.  NYS-2.
   

#034  NYS-2     2005.     A REAL PLAYERS GUITAR.

This has been my favourite guitar for a long while. 

The NYS-2 is the small body New Yorker at 15.5" wide, 2.75"deep with a 24.75" scale.   

John D'Angelico first made a small-bodied archtop in 1951.   Now, when many top jazz guitarists are playing small body archtops,  its clear that the NYS-2 was way ahead of its time.

I personally prefer this size  -  it is comfortable, lightweight and easy to play, retaining all the tone, depth and character of the full sized models when amplified.

This 2005 guitar has a superb jazzy feel as befits an archtop of quality.   Mellowing nicely.

Price 3650     So Jazzy.

  My latest (and final) Custom Hofner project is coming on nicely and should be finished early next year.    Then I shall hang up my apron and give the workshop a thorough Spring Clean.    So now seems like a good time to go through all my surplus spare parts and offer them to Hofner lovers and restorers wherever you are.

HOFNER MEMORABILIA.   UNIQUE!

This is NOT a headstock Fascia.

It is THE original Workshop MASTER,  from the Bubenreuth factory,  kept by me as a memento of a factory visit a long while ago!

This is simply a nice, original and genuine item of memorabilia to hang in your workshop!

The Inlay is set into a hard resin based fibre board.

The pic below shows the word MASTER written in Chalk.

It was used as a pattern and a guide in the days when headboards were inlaid by hand.
