  #061   HOFNER S3N with Vibrato.     




 Hofner S3 N with Vibrato.

This is a 1980's guitar in virtually Mint condition.


Hofner made the S3 N between 1979 - 86.    They seem only to have been made in small numbers and are quite rare.    This one is made of Ash with a single piece, bolt-on Maple neck and looks and plays just like new.    It has 3 single coil Schaller pickups,  two at the neck and the third at the bridge.   The second neck pickup is wired out of phase and the independent toggle switches mean that you can achieve 7 different settings.     Some interesting tone possibilities there!

Hofner offered a tailpiece mounted Vibrato as a factory option but a replacement Schaller Floyd Rose type has been fitted.
