Höfner Four Square Flat Top guitar – Germany – 1952

Höfner Four Square Flat Top guitar The Guitar Database


Acoustic Hollow Body Flat Top guitar


Flat top and back


The Four Square was one of the first pre-war Hofner guitars distributed by Selmer, appearing only in the Selmer 1952-53 Catalogue. It has all the features of the Höfner Square Dance, including the flat body top and back, but it has a 20 fret neck as opposed to the 18 fret of the Square Dance, plus a slightly smaller body. Because of the earlier body label style and lower Serial Number, it is safe to assume that the Four Square pre-dated the Square Dance, which replaced it about a year later.
