Hofner Congress 1955/6 Acoustic Guitar Pre-owned

This is a Hofner Congress from 1955/6 in excellent condition. Although it doesn't have a truss rod, the neck is remarkably straight and the action is low. The three-piece neck gives it superb stability.

It looks its age, but there are no serious dings or scratches. We haven't polished it, mainly because it doesn't need polishing! The frets are a little tarnished but that gives it an aged look and the tone is very bright and loud.

It really is a collectable instrument...

We found some specs on the Hofner vintage guitar site.
