Vintage Spares

We do not sell any vintage or NOS parts for our instruments. However some modern parts can fit vintage Höfner guitars and basses, but we cannot guarantee this.

Many of the parts made were from local manufacturers many of whom have long since ceased trading. Höfner, like all manufacturers, has changed suppliers over the years and we have also changed designs and fittings to suit new models.
