Hofner are the largest manufacturer of stringed instruments, guitars and basses in Western Europe. They export products throughout the world through their extensive distributor and dealer network – including us at Piper’s Wollongong Music Centre!
Höfner was established in 1887 by Karl Höfner who was followed by two of his sons and his granddaughter in developing the company into a world leading instrument manufacturer.
Höfner electric guitars are used by some of the most discerning professional players who demand quality, tone and playability. Their Violin ‘Beatle’ Bass has become one of the world’s iconic guitars and remains, after 60 years, as the preferred bass guitar for many.
Hofner have achieved affordability of their iconic instruments for everyone, from those starting out thru to seasoned professionals. Their “Contemporary” and “Ignition” lines of instruments offer classic Höfner design and quality but at a price point that enables everyone to experience the thrill of playing a Höfner guitar.
