Hofner "New Committee"

 Hofner New Committee Hofner New Committee 

Last seen here on Hofner News on 16th Nov, in white wood, the new archtop for 2012 is now complete.

This will be the New Committee guitar. The one shown is the first prototype so there may be minor changes to the specifications once it goes into production. A pickguard has been considered but, at this stage, not used as the guitar looks and plays better without one.

It comes witha spruce top and maple back and sides with deep rich binding. Block inlays are used on the neck.

The New Committee is not a reissue of the Committee made back in the 1960s, but is an all new model that reflects the vintage heritage of the model.

The observant will have noticed the special lettering on the back of the headstock, this being applied to guitars finished in our 125th anniversary year, 2012.
