Höfner Club 70 Single cutaway Archtop guitar – Germany – 1967


Electric Hollow Body Single cutaway Archtop guitar


Two “Blade” Type 512 pickups


Made presumably as a replacement for the original Club 40/50/60’s which had been discontinued some years before. It was introduced into the Selmer range at the British Musical Instrument Trade Fair of September 1967. The Club 70 was only in the catalogue for a year or so, and therefore examples are fairly rare, with less than 200 being made. It was the only Club to have two volume and two rotary controls not fitted to a console, plus a separate three-way pickup selector switch in the same locations as a Les Paul. Ornamentation on the guitar was in the same tradition of the Club 40 and 50.
