Welcome to the Registration Page for the Hofner Senator Model

(1953 to c1973)


If you fill in the details of your Senator here and it will appear on a register located on this website within a few days. 

Please do spare a few minutes to fill in the form - it's a simple matter of picking from check boxes and drop lists, and typing in some basic information. All of the items listed should be able to be ascertained by a glance at your guitar - no complex measurements or specialist knowledge required - just a bit of observation of what's in front of you. It's for you to simply select the correct/relevant option from the drop-list in each case. The Senator Fact File elsewhere on this website may help you. 

The idea is to gauge how many were produced, over what time-span, and also to monitor some of the detail changes that the guitars underwent as the years went by. By filling in all the details on the form, you can help us build up a bigger picture, and when the information you provide is collated, you'll be able to see just how and where your guitar fits in."

Please ensure that your guitar is actually a Senator model before filling in the form. The model name and serial number for these particular models is typed or written on a label located inside the body below the Bass F-hole. If your guitar does not have such a label, then it is almost certainly not one of the models being registered.
