Hofner Verythin Guitar, Dark Stain or Black Stain
A blast from the past with a modern twist. The Hofner Verythin blends classic '60s Hofner design and modern construction techniques. The UK-exclusive black stain matt finish creates an instrument that's equally at home at the Cavern Club or on any modern stage.
Dual Hofner humbucker pickups bring sonic versatility, with the Verythin handling everything from jangly jazz-pop strums to indie-rock kerrangs with ease. And the Hofner traditional set neck design and spruce centre block ensure thick, luscious lows and sustain for days. A show-stopping mahogany top is complemented by a gorgeous flame maple back and sides, to make the Verythin a guitar which is the complete package of versatility, playability and style.
Thick tone, thin body. Much of the Hofner Verythin’s appeal comes from its combination of solid-body size and semi-acoustic tone. With just a 3cm frame depth, the hollow body is light as a feather, while producing the rich, warm tones semi-acoustic guitars are known for.
Some semi-acoustics suffer from excessive feedback at high gain levels - not this one! A spruce centreblock is also fitted within the body to sure up the frame, allowing greater sustain, and reducing feedback.
Finished to perfection
The Verythin has the looks to match its superior sound. This UK exclusive model features a matt black stain finish, which shows off the eye-catching grain pattern of the mahogany top piece in style. The same goes for the flame maple back and sides, which also add a slight increase in top-end clarity to the guitar’s sound, as well as helping you stand out on any stage!
Heritage, hot off the press
Hofner’s Verythin line combines tradition with the here and now. A mainstay of the guitar scene since it began life as the "Verithin" in the 1950’s, the name change only came at the turn of the 21st Century. Players of all styles and from all eras have relied on the Veryithin’s classic set-neck design to provide the sustain and tone they needed.
This latest Hofner Verythin design retains all the character of the original model, with its two new Hofner humbucker pickups and three-way toggle switch providing a diverse palette of sounds in a versatile, comfy and endlessly playable package.
