What Hofner Say

The Höfner Thin President, first produced in the 1950s, has become famous for its elegant shape and superb tone. Now available in the Höfner Contemporary series it offers you a great semi-acoustic guitar with a long heritage.

The Contemporary model is fitted with full size Höfner humbuckers that deliver full on tone letting you use this guitar for a wide variety of styles from blues through to full on heavy rock. With a solid spruce centre sustain block you achieve even more sustain, better volume and less feedback. The genuine Bigsby vibrato is used in combination with a roller bridge for perfect tuning and playing. With a spruce top, maple back and sides this is the perfect alternative semi-acoustic guitar.
