Höfner

Since 1887 until today, Höfner is one of the leading makers of stringed instruments offering a varied selection of guitars and basses in classic and unique shapes. Due to their iconic design, many of Höfner's creations are instantly recognizable by sight alone, and those that use a more standard shape can still be discerned by the impeccable quality of their sound.

Höfner is best known for their bass guitars, particularly the violin-shaped style that was initially made popular by Paul McCartney. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of this electric bass design, Höfner released the Contemporary Series, which combines a vintage appearance with a modern sustain block on the inside to create a sound that's as classic as the instruments' looks.

You can also find traditional hollow body bass designs in the Club Bass models; these have a rich, woody sound that's perfectly suited for '60s and '70s-style rock. As well, if you're a frequent traveler, you can't miss the Höfner Shorty Electric Bass. Combining a full-scale length with a uniquely compact body, this bass lets you take your music anywhere without a problem. The cousin to the Shorty bass is the Höfner Shorty Electric Travel Guitar, which follows the same principle of putting a full-scale neck on a miniature body.

Apart from that portable instrument, Höfner's specialty for guitarists is the classical acoustic guitar. They make a number of these, from cedar-topped models with laurel, mahogany and rosewood bodies to a special hybrid guitar with spruce and cedar together on top. Höfner's classical guitars are well-suited to novice and professional players alike.

With Höfner In your collection, you'll quickly understand what made this luthier the biggest maker of stringed instruments in their native Western Europe. Well-built and great-sounding, Höfner's guitars and basses live up to their reputation with ease.
