Name: Hofner Semi Acoustic 


Model: 8947 President


Country of Origin: Germany


D.O.B: 1965


Condition: Very Good (Vintage)


Additional info:  The President was the main "middle-of-the-range" archtop in the Selmer catalogue between about 1953 and 1972/73 when it finally disappeared. This Brunette 8947 model dates from 1965 and is in great playing condition having had a fretstone and profile and full set up before going on show! This excellent jazz style guitar features a laminated spruce top with five piece slightly flamed maple/mahogany laminated neck.  In the neck position there is an added Kent Armstrong pickup that gives the guitar a classic jazz warm and smooth sound when plugged in that has controls mounted onto the retro-fitted scratchplate. Other key features include dot fingerboard inlays, zero fret, black/white body purfling and white binding. It's also truly amazing that this guitar has all it's original machine heads - and has also kept it's original wave tailpiece....standing the true test of time are these fine German parts! A true vintage gem!
