THE HOFNER VERYTHIN STANDARD CT HAS A SPRUCE TOP WITH A TRANSPARENT RED FINISH.
For 2016 the Contemporary Verythin has new machine heads and a new headstock decoration. The overall finish has improved as well. This semi acoustic guitar body shape from 1960 with the body has a depth of only 1.25 inches. The Hofner Verythin was extremely popular with groups during the 1960s beat boom era.
The Verythin CT not only captures that unique 60s sound but also has the ability to produce tones ranging from deep gutsy blues through to cutting distorted rock. At Hofner they achieve this by fitting a center block in the body to produce more sustain, deeper tones and less feedback.
The Hofner Semi Acoustic Guitar Transparent Red model is now fitted with striped position markers on the neck just like the original Hofner 1960s model. You’ll certainly stand out from the crowd playing a Hofner Semi Acoustic Guitar. It truly is a versatile guitar at a very affordable price.
Born in 1960 the Verithin guitar was developed to appeal to the many beat groups that were appearing across Europe as Rock ‘N Roll took the imagination of youngsters everywhere. It was created to give the player a lightweight stylish guitar with an ultra thin body (just 1.25 inches) no deeper than the average solid body guitar while still providing the tone of a semi-acoustic.
Hollow bodied, with twin pickups it soon became a favourite of bands in Europe. Original models were finished in a dark sunburst and were fitted with the Höfner control panel but this style soon gave way to the famous cherry red finish and 4 rotary controls.
Verithin was the model name used only in the UK, in the rest of Europe it was the 4574 model. Many variants were produced over the years incuding a bass version. Today there are several models of the Verythin available including the bass. The model name was changed from Verithin to Verythin in the 2000s.
