Höfner 173 and Höfner 173 II


Today we'll offer you not one but two vintage German guitars, two versions of the same model: the Höfner 173. On top is the Höfner 173 II - released in 1964, on bottom is the Höfner 173, one year younger. They are very similar - you'll notice the famous leatherette cream finish - and differ mostly by the bridges and tremtails, both very lovable (you remember my soft spot for these good old German trems!)
