MELODIJA MENGES SOLID GUITAR
COURTESY OF DETLEV GOLDAU:
the two output jack sockets.
Well, it may have "Hofner" on the headstock but this
guitar certainly wasn't made by Hofner! It is a guitar made in Slovenia by the
Melodija Menges Company that has at some stage had the headstock profile
altered, an engraved brass "Hofner" truss-rod cover and "Hofner" decal logo
added. The pickups were made by Schaller for a time in the 70's and 80's, based
on the Hofner/Frank Pix Type 513 units and used by many other companies,
including Melodija. The vibrato tailpiece is the same type as also used by
Hofner on many of their guitars.
Melodija's body size compared to that of a Gibson SG.
