If you own a Hofner Committee, Golden, Deluxe, President, Verithin, Senator, Club, Congress, or 500/1 Violin Bass,  you can register it on this website. The details that you supply about your guitar will also be made available on the website to help us all understand further the development of that model. Other Hofner model registrations will be set up in the future.
