Hofner President C.1958

March 17, 2017

You don’t need me to tell you how beautiful this girl is.  We’ve had a few things to get around like the neck set problem, electronics and what type of bridge will do justice to her.  The neck we removed (actually age and several bad gluing job did it for us… But we didn’t fight it!) We then removed a whole section of the neck heal which we deemed weak and replaced it with a maple insert and a vertical dowel running right through the center.  For the bridge, we ended up making a one piece compensated jazz bridge out of striped ebony.  She really belongs in the hands of a professional, however, she’ll also take being owned by someone who really loves her.  She’s plays like butter and the tone both acoustically and electrically is warm and woody.
