1970s Höfner 4575 verythin semi-hollow guitar

This is a Höfner 4575 and I like this kind of old school hybrid guitars mixing a semi-hollow body with features you usually find on solid bodies - three pickups, a trem bar (a cool 60s one, typically Höfner) and lots of control switches and knobs (the curved control plate is particularly nice).

It's bizarre that in our times that value versatility in guitars, nobody proposes this kind of combination anymore...

Here you can see Alison Mosshart playing a 4575 when with the Kills - a band quite relaying on vintage German guitars - not the only reason why I enjoy them...

I'm in bed with a bad flu for one week, if someone would offer me this guitar, I would feel much better already!
