USED Vintage 1968 Hofner 489 Western Acoustic Item #hof489

Availability: In stock

Hofner made some cool guitars back in the day. They still do, but I like the vibe of the old ones. This guitar is quite similar to one Brian Jones used in the studio with the Stones. We have a 1968 Hofner 489 Western Model. It is a slope shoulder dreadnought. Looks like a Gibson J-50. It has maple back and sides, a spruce top, adjustable bridge saddle, and micro tilt to adjust the neck angle. It is clean, very clean. It has some lacquer checking, but the only real playing wear is on the top near the lower part on the soundhole. The neck is straight, the frets are fine, the action is good, and it sounds great. It's really a cool guitar. The maple is nice and flamey. It's a cool part of 60's history. Comes with original gig bag.
