1966 HOFNER MODEL 164 SOLID GUITAR
COURTESY OF JOS WEHRENS, THE NETHERLANDS:
Unusual control knobs.
The very unusual Hofner Type 510 Pickups
with "stud" type polepieces, factory fitted on this particular guitar.
JOS EXPLAINS ABOUT HIS GUITAR:
I could not resist the Höfner 164, build 1966, when I saw
that guitar on a website and guess what..... it was for sale too! I
paid 185 euro for the Höfner and that is almost for free!!
The guitar was dirty but I could see that it was almost an un-scratched guitar. Almost no
scratches on the scratchplate and after polishing a
very fine colour. The colour looks from dark red to purple. Very nice, and I have never seen a colour like that before. The chrome parts are in excellent condition.
The neck is a little shorter than a Strat and for a big man
like me a little hard to play but the sound is great and what a sustain!
The amp I use is a Behringer Vintage AC112.
Overall is the 164 is in a very good and super condition as
you can see an the pictures.
