An interesting guitar that has the characteristics of a 1962 model, but has a body date of 1961. Unfortunately the Hofner label has been torn and the serial number is missing. The tuners are not original.

An interesting example of the Verithin.

From the owner

Below is an account from my cousin about this guitar and where it came from. :)

History for the guitar as I know it......... So far!

Was once said to of been owned by the producer of The Tube (mid 80's music show).

Then owned by an art teacher who left it in his classroom for students to draw, but usually abuse!

Bought by me in 1989, and fixed by old hat in 2014.

 

New tuners, a non Hofner tailpiece and an added pickup selector make this a nicley personalised Verithin
