1982 Hopf 06325 HW8 acoustic steel strings guitar

Have you ever seen such a guitar? This Hopf acoustic guitar's sound-holes are pretty unique and fit well its modernist Dreadnought design (did you know that this body shape was created by Martin in 1916 to increase the volume and hence the loudness of acoustic guitars, and named after an armored battleship?) 

Again, I cannot tell enough how much in our time of vintage cult, this kind of innovation became alas too rare (the guitar is from 1982), and that guitar's culture would quickly die if some people would not keep the spirit up and keep trying and improving while most companies issue the same 3 models again and again!
