Pre-owned by a collector and very well looked after, this is a German-Made Hofner Thinline President E2 model from 2008 finished in Blonde. The guitar has been within its case for most of its previous ownership and is incredibly clean as a result. The guitar is set nicely with a low, easy-playing action and is very resonant considering its thinner body. The Thinline President would be an excellent choice for players seeking an archtop sound without the much larger body style of other archtops and comes complete with a Bigsby tremolo system. 

The guitar includes its original Hofner hard case.

We Welcome Part Exchange

We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.

How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.

You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
