My first guitar in 1966
got from my parents brand new as birthday present in 1966. I was bought
at Arnes Radio in Glostrup, Denmark (price I don't know). I actually
started my first year i guitar class on this "monster" (6 years old)
It was build in 1964. It's a H÷fner Thinline 4560 MK
model of the 456, brown shaded, celluloid binding around top, back and
f-holes, two 510 diamond pickups, A 2 aggregate, Hofner vibrato
As thinline guitars became popular in the
late Ĺ50ĺs and into the Ĺ60ĺs, Hofner produced several thinline models
based on existing full-body models. The addition of a fourth digit, a
zero, came to mean thinline, as was the case with the 4500, 4560, 4680
and 4700 series of 2" deep electric guitars. As well, the fourth digit
was used to communicate specific variations on thinline models, such as
the 4572, 4574, 4575 and so forth.
Below are my private pictures of my own
H°fner, below these are official pictures from H°fner.
