  #097   HOFNER S3N  Blonde.     


  Sort of Les Paul shape and size .....
  Sort of Strat feel and electrics but with some nice Hofner touches.
  Not sure this is the original case!


 Hofner S3 N.

Another 1980's S3N 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 Shadow 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!
