Hohner SE-400
Year and place of manufacture unknown ... but probably late 80 'in Asia (any clarification is welcome!).
Fund maple (I think) beautifully flamed back ... key flat rosewood.
2 Humbuckers licensed "Kent Armstrong"
3 position selector for each pickup and a volume and tone ... nothing but very classic.
Channel quite narrow and flat ... very comfortable, although I am not accustomed to, including varnish ...
The mechanical "oil bath" standards are very properly the agreement and the action is on my own, perfectly set ... flush with the handle without any "frisouille"


The access to acute is correct and this guitar is, as I said, surprisingly comfortable. weight "just right" ... we feel it is there, but it's not painful at all what!
The body is thick (it's a half-body what!) But the general pattern is far from daunting even to the first grip.
Finally, the sound ... pfffouououou beautiful!


In acoustics, already, it sounds well enough itches quietly until the heat lamps ... Once plugged in, there always ... is still 100 times better!
The neck pickup sounds muffled to very hot and jazz ... while maintaining a beautiful setting and a real grain "Acoustic" (very beautiful on a clear channel)
The bridge pickup is a little more "rabble" ... he likes a little crunch a little dirty ... How much more rock ...
The intermediate position (the two microphones together so) ... perfect for rhythm and great fun in his clear sounds almost "folk".
Overall, very good looking, I could not find a configuration with which you can get a bad sound.
The pickups are very quiet (no noise), very precise and "push" the amp though ...


I use it only last a few hours (bought second hand with his flight case for a very very reasonable) ... I do not regret a single second purchase of this guitar ...
The low "visibility" of the brand make, I think, a very good deal on the second hand market ...

Truly a guitar with an open mind to try ... and finally buy!

The Hohner SE 400 is a jazz guitar. True.
Channel pleasant quality, with a head a bit small, which makes the discrete model.


No more commonplace, good ergonomics, provides a setting very low ropes.


Jazz sound is typically a remarkable quality.
Very surprising that this model is not known. Try it.
I have twenty guitar, cheapest to most expensive. the SE 400 is part of the peloton head for a very low price yet.
Exellent for guitar sounds like Barney Kessel.
I would have preferred a model natural color. But the sunburst going very well. The rest is a matter of taste.


I use this guitar for four years, in concert as the show.
It concurence my Gibson ES 165 that is much more expensive, as this is not what it's worth the price that matters but the price it cost.
I think he changed his tailpiece and pickguard, too trivial for a guitar of this sound.
