(Guitar Reference). A true classic, back in print with an updated section covering 1994 to today! This book celebrates the glory years of Hofner, the company made famous by the Beatles' bassist Paul McCartney's use of their left-handed 1962 500/1 model. Beautifully illustrated in color and black & white, the volume is packed with detailed information about classic Hofner guitars as well as interviews with Paul McCartney, David Gilmour, Ritchie Blackmore (of Deep Purple), Albert Lee, and others. The famous "Memorabilia" chapter includes crisp reproductions of pages from the vintage Selmer catalogs (the UK's Hofner distributors); a guide to dating Hofner guitars; and a wonderfully insightful interview with Christian Benker, the company's former managing director.A new section features a company history and a listing with selected photos of Hofner guitars from the '60s to the present.
