Höfner 449 Archtop guitar – Germany – mid-1950s


Acoustic Hollow Body Archtop guitar



Bottom of the range archtop made between the mid-1950’s and the early 1980’s. Small body with 15 inch lower bout dimension and binding only around the body top. Predominantly made as a fully-acoustic version, although some electric versions do exist, and always without a cutaway. The Hofner Congress is the UK/Selmer equivalent.
