|Comments||This is an interesting Hofner archtop in decent shape. It has a number of high-end features like the carved spruce top and bound F-holes; the sharp florentine cutaway makes it different from many other European (especially Hofner) archtops.
It was put together by Hofner Canada as a custom instrument for a Toronto jazz artist, with NOS parts from Hofner. The guitar is a 1970’s Hofner Model 4710. It has been built as a 24 3/4″ scale instrument, with a Les Paul Custom fingerboard replacing the original Hofner 25 1/2″ scale fingerboard.
