Thin President

Höfner goes Rockabilly 

From headstock to bottom strap-pin, the Höfner Thin President (HTP-E2, not to be confused with the HCT Contemporary equivalent) is a stunning thinline guitar. The Arched spruce top and maple back are beautifully carved and enhance the sound projection of the HTP-E2. The Thin President is not to be mistaken as a traditional Jazz guitar. It does shaped as a Jazz guitar and you can play Jazz with it, that much is true, but the center block, Bigsby tremolo arm and Höfner’s full size humbuckers make it a great rockabilly guitar, it has just the right amount of dryness in it’s sound. The Thin President and other made in Germany Höfner guitars are a great representation of Höfner’s quality and craftsmanship abilities. Like other made in Germany Höfner guitars, the HTP-E2 comes with a hardshell Höfner case.
