Amplifire Box rig

Posted in Uncategorized on September 26, 2017 by Staff Writer

Everything I need to rock in my Death Metal band.  Core tones coming from Amplifire Box with a heavy patch and Ownhammer free Mesa cab IRs. Seriously, it sounds killer.

Hofner 457/S/E1

This guitar has come into my possession.¬† It needs some work done to it and I will be going to Malcolm for some restoration on it and I can’t wait to see the results.

After extensive searching I have established that this is a Hofner 457/S/E1 archtop and part of this series http://www.hofner-vintage.com/hofner-vintage-457.html

To date it, I followed the instructions found here http://www.vintagehofner.co.uk/factfiles/bodydate/bodydate.html and using this method established that the body of the guitar was made on 13th May 1959.

This is tremendously exciting.

…but as I said, there needs to be a ton of work done on it – I can see the following problems with it already:

neck binding crumbling/cracking and coming away from side of neck

rusted frets

veneer on headstock coming away

rusted switches and electronics (though it does make a sound when plugged in!)

missing tuner peg

cracked scratchplate has come away from bracket

broken strap pin

and more…

but amazingly, given this guitar hasn’t even been in a case for god knows how long the main body is in tremendous shape with some honest wear and no major breaks/cracks or dings.
