Höfner Colourama Archtop guitar – Germany – 1956


Acoustic Hollow Body Archtop guitar



The Hofner Colourama (not to be confused with the Hofner Colorama) was a very short-lived version of the Senator model. A very small number were produced only for Selmer London for a few months in late 1956, early 1957.
This guitar was ‘flash’ in the Italian style, with a glitter body finish offered in red, gold or silver. The pickguard was white pearloid and the headstock matched this also in pearloid, but with a glitter diamond/dagger inlay to match the body finish. Pearloid strip fret-markers, again inlaid to match the body finish, were provided.
