Here we have a lovely & rare piece of rock n’ roll history! This is a stunning and all original example of a 1960 Hofner Club 50 in Natural Blonde. It has to be one of the finest examples you will likely see either for sale or in a collection! She has the rare toaster ‘SUPER RESPONSE’ Diamond Logo’d pickups & the double plate FLICK ACTION console, has the Lyre Trapeze with the distinctive ‘KH’ Karl Hofner logo badge, unique to that era (It is like the tailpiece on John Lennon’s 1959 Club 40 (the guitar that he passed on to Paul when he got his Rickenbacker 325) She is also a sought after natural blonde! Her neck is perfectly straight & the action low & fast. the frets are perfect & all electrics inc pots are 100% original & work as they should.There is barely a mark on this old girl & to say that she is over 60 years old, is indeed a rare find! She sleeps in her original case, which is also in superb all-round condition, with all latches functioning and all protective metalwork & feet in place.

This guitar features a fully hollow and lightweight Les Paul-inspired body with beautifully figured maple back and sides, a Faux tortoiseshell celluloid pickguard and control panel.  A truly great looking & playing example & an early piece of rock n’ roll history!

Hofner guitars were sold by Selmer instruments in England, and this 1959 Club 50 model is similar to guitars owned by players like the Beatles, Richie Blackmore, Jimmy Page and many others, early in their careers!
