Höfner 460 Archtop guitar – Germany – 1949


Acoustic Hollow Body Archtop guitar


Finished in glossy black lacquer, and with the “up-market” Lyre tailpiece.
The headstock has a “rocket” inscribed in the usual pearloid and tortoiseshell headstock fascia.


This guitar seem to have been the deluxe version of the Model 456.

The black-finish, but lower spec Model 458 took over from the 460 in 1954.
