An interesting Verithin. For sale in the USA, and claimed to be original!
The pots aren't standard, the Bigsby is a USA unit, and the tuners are a bit suspect, the label has been touched up with a Biro, and looks a bit suspect too, and then there is the colour. Rare original, or very cleverly refinished in brown burst...you choose :-)

This one's turned blonde! Just the top striped, a nice job too.
One of the earlier sterio guitars.

My father learned to play on it and has told me he paid £60 for it back in the 60's.
He played in two bands with it during the 60's and 70's using Colorsound Wah Wah, Colorsound ToneBender Fuzz and Watkins Copicat delay.
They played through a WEM P.A. System.

He has an interesting tale to tell

Hi everyone, I have a tale to tell. My dad passed away a couple of years ago. he was a working musician in the 60's and 70's and he gigged with a Verithin, that has now found it's way into my hands. The story goes that at one point in the early 60's, his band were going places and acquired a manager who took them down to tin pan alley & told them to get new gear - my dad couldn't decide between the Verithin and wait for it... a '57 gold top Les Paul. Doh! Anyway, he plumped for the Hofner and it's been left in it's case since my dad packed up playing in about 1976. I've played for about twenty years and I know my way round a guitar, although I'm a strat man personally, owning two - one new and one '74 CBS model, I've always liked the feel of the Verithin, it's a highly playable guitar. Mine has good intonation, a straight neck, good original paintwork and no significant chips or dents. I'm not so confident on the electrics however, there is a fifth knob on the guitar that I haven't seen on other Verithins, that crackles and cuts the output unless it is fettled - the electrics look like they need attention. Also not sure if the machine heads have been replaced?? The serial no. is 2031 which at a guess makes it a '63 and as pictured, the Hofner sticker does describe it as a stereo - which is what made my dad choose it over the Les Paul in the first place. What I'm looking to find out is whether the fifth knob is an addition by someone - I don't recall my dad mentioning it.It is not going to be sold - too sentimental for me to allow that.

A nice example fitted with a lyre tailpiece.

The guitar had one previous owner who bought it new from the famous Frank Hessy's Music shop in Liverpool.  Who knows, it may even have been gazed upon by the fab four who were regular visitors to Hessy's in those early years. By his own admission, the previous owner never actually mastered playing the guitar, and it was only used for house rehearsals and enjoyment, and was never gigged.  It is in truly excellent condition with its original Selmer case also benefiting from not having been slung into the back of a van.  In particular, the back of the body shows no signs of belt rash and is smooth and blemish free.
