Please note: These guitars have had their bridges re-positioned to ensure that they are properly intonated. This means that a slight mark will be visible from where the bridges were previously installed (see last image). All guitars will now be supplied correctly intonated.
The Hofner Blue Tone is a brilliant example of a Jazz Box guitar with it's premium woods, classic finish and mellow tones.
It has a Rosewood board for a warm response with Ebony and chrome hardware. Ebony is a dense wood and provides the tone with enough snap to add brightness without taking away from the warm jazzy tones.
The electronics are very simple. You've got a single neck pickup for those beautiful warm jazz tones with a single volume control. A single tone control means you can take the neck pickup from bright with a bit of an edge to dull by simply adjusting the tone knob.
The body is large and completely hollow and actually features woods similar to what you might find on an acoustic guitar. This is what gives the Super Luxe it's depth and resonance. The Spruce top and Maple back and sides make for a formidable combination that'll have you nailing those George Benson tones in no time!
