Hofner HCT-VTH Verythin CT

Based on the original classic Hofner Verythin guitar body shape from 1960 with the body depth of only 1.25 inches. The Hofner Verythin was extremely popular with groups during the 1960s beat boom era.

The Hofner Verythin CT not only captures that unique 60s sound but also has the ability to produce tones ranging from deep gutsy blues through to cutting distorted rock. Hofner achieves this by fitting a centre block in the body to produce more sustain, deeper tones and less feedback. The CT model is now fitted with striped position markers on the neck just like the original Hofner 1960s model. You'll certainly stand out from the crowd playing a Hofner Verythin CT. It truly is a versatile guitar at a very affordable price.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Hofner Verythin"
Overall: Full disclosure: The guitar needed a very thorough setup when I got it, but it was so amazing-looking I wanted to give it a chance. After the setup, I am very pleased. This guitar is not quite like a Gibson ES-335 or an Epiphone Dot. It's a much better guitar than the Dot, much better constructed and tonally much more diverse as well. It's also a beautiful piece of work. People have asked if it is comparable to an ES-335, but I think it is much more comparable to an Epiphone Casino. Like the Casino it is very light, and even though it has a center block, it can feed back as easily as the Casino, which can be good or bad depending on the context. It is not as thick-sounding as an ES-335 can be by any means. If anything the guitar is tonally unique. It's in the same neighborhood as the Casino or perhaps a Rickenbacker 330 or 360. Overall, I am glad I bought it, and it is a good alternative to most other semi-hollowbodies out there. It's unique, it looks great, and it has its own character. A good buy all things considered.

"amazing player and sound"
Overall: 5 stars on this guitar. Thin, comfortable, light and sound is dark but has tone and loud acoustically. Lots or overtones and tone for days. I restrung it with .011 and I am set now.
