Here’s a fantastic lightweight blues machine! This colorama comes in a rare wood vinyl covering opposed to the red and white ones that are more common.
The guitar seems to be all original apart from the machine head for the high Estring which is not an exact but a direct replacement with no extra holes drilled. There’s some beautiful checking going on on the entire neck. The Hofner mini humbuckers sound fantastic too! Low output and great for handling some sick fuzzes! The control plate and knobs are original, these are the same as the plates on a 400/1 bass, the colorama still sports the narrow panel control plate, making it definitely pre-1965 but you never know with Hofner as they might’ve been using leftover parts. She’s just had a fret dress and a setup from our tech and it’s playing wonderfully with super low action,
The truss rod also works fine. Comes in a soft case.
