1969 Hofner Model 459 VTZ

For sale is this 100% all original vintage 1969 Hofner Model 459 VTZ fuzz electric guitar with original hard shell case. This particular example is in very excellent all original condition, it works perfectly and sounds great.

This Hofner 459 fuzz guitar features: Violin shape body design, German spruce top, Maple back and sides, Rosewood fingerboard, Double-bound body and bound neck, Transistor-powered built-in flip-fuzz and treble boost, 512B “Blade” pickups, and Original deluxe plush 3-ply case.

This hollowbody guitar is extremely light, and weighs a mere 5 lbs. 15 oz.! It is in perfect all original structural condition, with no breaks, no cracks and no repairs. Both the fuzz and treble boost effects work great and sound fantastic. The BC108 transistor-powered fuzz section is remarkably similar to a concurrent Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face, and produces an almost identical silicon-based fuzz.

Of course, the guitar sounds great without engaging the effects, but the options make it it one of the coolest vintage guitar made, and it is probably the best guitar made with built-in effects, with respect to both the quality of the build, and the quality of the sound.

This is a must have for Hofner collectors, cool studios and the guitarist looking for a usually inaccessible new toy!
