I am moving to a new home where room is a little more limited, and so the following items from my collection are up for grabs. The guitars and amplifiers for sale are offered on a collect-only basis as described below from the Manchester area, as I am not prepared to risk any damage occurring to them during shipping. Also, I prefer that a purchaser should inspect his intended purchase and make sure that he/she is happy with it before handing over any money
Payment is to be strictly cash on collection.
There are also a few Hofner spare parts at the bottom of the page, which obviously I am happy to post anywhere following payment via Paypal.
Please contact me on the following telephone number if you require further details of a particular item:
