Electro-acoustic Hollow Body Single cutaway Archtop guitar



A rare guitar that seems to be an attempt at recreating the “Club” style of a small single cutaway semi-acoustic. This model had a body depth of 1.75″ (42mm), which was a little thinner than the earlier Clubs. Introduced in early 1970, just as the earlier Club-style models were being phased out, it only seems to have been offered for a year or so, with or without a Hofner vibrato tailpiece. It was then transfigured into the second version of the 4579, which was a solid body guitar, based even more on the Gibson Les Paul.
