Pre-1950 HOFNER  MODEL 463/S ARCHTOP GUITAR

 

COURTESY OF KIELD ANDERSSON:

 

              

 

 

 

 

 

Note the lack of edge binding on the body. The dowel in the neck heel is probably a non-Hofner repair.

 

The "Meisterklasse" stamp adjacent to the bridge is the same as used on the later early-1950's examples of Hofner's premium archtops. Where is the "Hofner" logo stamp though?

               

 

 

            

    Note the three-piece neck and the inlaid ebony "rocket" on the headstock fascia.

 

Wood mosaic purfling.
