Here we have for sale is a lovely Hofner indeed its a 1959 Senator but what makes this really special it was owned by the guitarist Frank Allen from the legendary band "The Searcher", this example is probably the best Hofner we have ever had in stock as it plays lovely with a nice low action and is really comfortable to play sound wise it has that traditional old boxy Hofner jazz sound which we love and have always been massive fan of Hofner guitars, these old German ones the prices are going through the roof as you just can't get them and this one being owned by frank Allen makes it more desirable so dont miss this.

Condition: This Hofner is an absolute gem of a guitar it really is considering its age it is one of the cleanest examples we have ever come across and does not look as it has been played much in its lifetime, there is a couple of small age related marks as you can see from the pictures as expected but these are small also lastly the volume pot has seized with age so is constantly on we decided not to replace it as know most people would want it they way it is.
