MacFearless's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" An unexpected gem"

Hofner Guitars Verythin CT
"Designed in Germany", but assembled in China I think.
In excellent workmanship! The finishes are really impeccable and very successful sunburst.
The maple smells good living, robustness and provides a very original sound, even when the guitar is unplugged.
The basic settings were relatively ok, however the passage in the luthier is required to get the best.
Pearly finishes are superb.


Lacquered handle is very comfortable to touch. I, who am not a fan of typed sleeves Gibson, Fender fan, I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of playing that gives this guitar.
Even if the body is by definition "very thin", very thin and light, I have to feel any discomfort while. The guitar does not sting the nose and personally, I find it well balanced.
Access to acute is easy but, as mentioned above, to make the most of this guitar, especially in the treble, we must take it to a luthier to make the standard settings.
Personally I play with strings 011/048, lighter reduces the stamp of this marvel.


Very eclectic, I play blues, gypsy, lofi, indie ...
His unusual and unique sound adds a grain, a very special bracket.
The range of sounds available is wide, any remaining time Etoufee slightly (very light).
I play with a VOX AC100 Plugge a cab VOX V412, and it sounds not dégeu.
I love what it offers in the bass, unique sounds that surprise me every time.


I use it for a year now and you'll understand, I'm hooked!
I have a small collection, ranging from 72 to telecaster custom Jaguar HH special, and this guitar has everything a strangely large for a low price.
If you find one, jump on the opportunity, this guitar is a gem.
If I had to buy this guitar for one reason or another, I would do it 1000 times.

Mick LUIS's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good guitar"

Hofner Guitars Verythin CT
Made in Germany ... to confirm what was said by a previous user!
I was endorser by them in 2008/2009 and I went visited the workshops. Their work is outstanding and are listening to their customers! Only electronics comes from Asia.

I remain, despite the fact that I was endorser by them Oblectif!

I changed the neck pickup for a microphone at Duesenberg .. but the difference is not obvious, the original microphone does a good job .. if so!

The guitar are very good especially for the price!


Its size a little bit too much bother and balance may also disturb when door with strap .... You get used to it :)


For blues, Jazz, The Rock!
Guitar with a round, even in acute she keeps a slight roundness not bad at all

on a tube amp, it sounds great, with a good distortion, it sounds fabulous!

Pickups origins are a little weak but nothing too bad on some widely play with!


I play with for 6 years now and I do not séparerati! and yet I have other guitars type strato U.S. Gibson and despite everything I love playing with my beacoup "Verythin!"

the + Sound (really nice)
the - form a little too big for my taste but nothing too annoying

Value for money?? GOOD ...!

Of course I would do the same choice! Moreover, they have other cheap and very interesting models!

BigB's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)"Excellent case for half the price"

Hofner Guitars Verythin CT
Chinese violin (yes bin a half box at this price huh) but with a schedule of charges and serious quality control quite Germanic.
Maple or spruce top (the specs are contradictory ...), maple neck, central beam spruce, stopbar tailpiece and bridge tune-o-matic, quite standard configuration (2 humbuckers each with its own volume and tone controls and a 3 positions). What is not standard is the body thickness, thinner than most solidbody, which provides playing comfort despite the size of the box.
The neck profile is a C hair a little thicker than the profile "slim type" Gibson, 1mm over, it's enough to make a difference but not enough to turn the handle log, instead it makes my more comfortable taste and CUNE friend of mine who has very small hands is just perfect.
The violin is of good quality (it feels and it is), very clean finish - in fact almost flawless (a tiny defect on the binding inside a horn on mine, but even knowing where I see it is not the first time, it's really brief history of nitpicking) - the frets are leveled and do not exceed, in short, as I said earlier, even if the Asian manufacturing quality achievement breathes seriously.
Setting mine (purchased from Thomann) was pretty dismal by against, but half an hour later (time to change the strings, check the curve and adjust the action and intonation) the guitar was in perfect condition. The hardware is not high end but nonetheless done his job - no problem adjusting or tuning stability, just horrifying bzz small wire that holds the screws on the bridge saddles.


In use, the handle is very comfortable, with a good grip without making log, the only flaw in my opinion is the poly varnish "gloss" that deserves a little frosted (I make the most of my guitars anyway). The fine box (more than Tele) is also very practical, despite a slightly higher than an area ES was not that feeling of having "open arms", they found contrary to their natural position.
The guitar is very light and well balanced, it is soon forgotten (physical huh <g> ), And requires only a few seconds of adaptation from a solid body - in fact the main "trap" (for me) is the largest distance between the strings and knobs. Access to acute is excellent, almost as good as a SG.


At the point of his view, has the qualities expected of a semi-hollow, this side both deep, warm, a little "woody" and lively, with a bit more gloss and responsiveness to attack on the type ES guitars. The pickups are quite correct for the price (see below for what I mean), and the most versatile guitar you can not think, of course we can go from jazz to blues to rock to indie big rock that task, but also, and in a much more brutal register (hard rock, grunge, stoner ...), where they do not necessarily expected. Obviously you have to manage the feedback but it is in this case much easier than an ES-like, and it quickly became a "feature" of this guitar more than a problem.

NB: the grade with the microphones and the bridge of origin, see below ...


It&#39;s been a year and a half I use this guitar, and to my surprise I was able to use in a situation where I did not expect (oriented punk / grunge / stoner group). I had long wanted a semi-hollow and toured that fell within my budget (Epiphone, Hagstrom, etc. Ibby), without finding anything that really satisfies me, I bought this one in without Thotho be able to try it in advance and waiting for me to return half of the week ... frankly I do not regret it, I honestly think this is the best current half body in this price game - the hardware and pickups are generally what you would expect at this price point, the violin enough above competition, and she has a personality that is lacking in its competitors.

Now make no mistake, for this quality at this price, even with an Asian production need to save somewhere, and as usual it is on the hardware and pickups. Not that Hofner is below this alternative point of view, but it is not over, in fact it is exactly the same as on a Epi Sheraton (bling-bling gold less) or Hagstrom Viking reissue, but the quality of the violin well justified upgrades, including the bridge, the capas and microphones.
For my part I upgraded mine with an easel tone-pro, the Russian PIO capas and a pair of Bareknuckle RiffRaff (to accentuate the brilliant and biting of this guitar, I could choose to Stormy Mondays instead increase vintage side) - knobs (alpha) is in my opinion (after a few weeks of testing) of sufficient quality to be preserved - and even if this guitar was already perfectly usable and very nice before, the quality of violin is really revealed after this mod, knowing that BKP pickups do not forgive anything, just as they magnify the defects that the qualities of a guitar. From this point of view, except make it a little more obvious one or two "dead spots" on the handle (but there are very few guitars that do not have this problem, I met him on LP Custom Shop 4000 + €), guitar passes the test with flying colors.
NB: I put a 7 for the previous chapter, but after upgrade it deserves a 8.5
To summarize: no, of course not as good a guitar that upscale ES (or vintage Gibson Custom Shop, Greco 80s etc), but in my opinion (after testing a bunch of half -cases) and by far the best in this price range (with perhaps some Ibby but I can not hang with, I find too clean and "neutral", I prefer shovels with character), and unlike Epi (dot and sheraton - which is ultimately a dot "gold-plated") justify largely invest in upgrades. In addition it is beautiful, it does not hurt.


Vrouam's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" beautiful finish"

Hofner Guitars Verythin CT
made in Asia probably saw the price, but whether it is in China or Korea ... I could not tell.
As the name suggests it is very fine more than 335, a Sheraton, Riviera, ... the shape is slightly different but ultimately has a side by side, I prefer the Hofner.
the table also is a bit thinner than 1mm or 2mm and flamed maple is beautiful.
rotten fittings to change. Tune O Matic 4mm screws are then selected by a thread, yuck!


C-profile neck or too thick or too wide. good grip.
light weight, no shrink beyond, necessarily very accessible in the high ...
the wiring is especially I do not know how it is done but when you are in middle position and you cut the volume of a micro volume it cuts the other also. This is the only guitar that I like that works but it is not a problem.
progressive pots and easily dosable.
Although the mechanisms is slightly fuzzy, they take very good agreement, but personally I'll end up changing them for something nicer to live up to instrument making.


resolutely indie guitar rock in my opinion. It comes off very well the other instruments thanks to its harmonics.
the micro bridge has a very good offense, like a 335. The neck pickup lacks a little mellow but coupled with the easel is a wonder. Even clear the bridge pickup is at the limit of saturation is very enjoyable to play.
Of course no one buys a "semi acoustic" without knowing what it starts (risk of feedback and lack of definition in some configs, ...)
It's really a very melodious guitar.


Overall ... I love it. it's been a few days I have but five months of research I tested:
-Lots of all vintages alike sheraton
-A marathon
Custom 77-Needles & Pins 2.0 (but then its super huge. Unfortunately finishes fair. 575euros but the damage to V1 are much better)
none of the latter are both finite. The only problem is the hardware.
Basically, I was looking for a Samick Sheraton plants but one finishes are not constant and two microphones are changing and three prices start to buckle.
Still hesitate to change the neck pickup for a slightly more bluesy sound, but I fear it does not fit as well with the bridge.
Sure I would do this choice
