Woodstock Guitars

The President guitar began in early 1950s, aimed at the professional wanting a robust guitar with great tone. The New President archtop continues in that tradition, featuring a solid carved top in selected solid German spruce and an arched back in flamed maple giving deep tones and plenty of sustain.

Common to all Hofner jazz guitars is the neck to body joint at the 16th fret, which ensures easy access to the upper end of the fretboard. Thanks to the superb quality of wood chosen, this guitar sounds fantastic both through an amp and acoustically.
