Faith Guitars

FKNThe Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood in keeping with all other Faith series. However, the cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, Naked state. Satin finished all over, the tonewood is almost entirely unrestricted in its resonant movement, so the tone delivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level.

Faith FKN £475.00 including fitted Faith hardcase

Hofner Guitars and Bases

HCTVTHSBBased on the original classic Hofner Verythin guitar body shape from 1960 with the body depth of only 1.25 inches. The Hofner Verythin was extremely popular with groups during the 1960s beat boom era. The Hofner Verythin CT not only captures that unique 60s sound but also has the ability to produce tones ranging from deep gutsy blues through to cutting distorted rock. At Hofner we achieve this by fitting a centre block in the body to produce more sustain, deeper tones and less feedback. The CT model is now fitted with striped position markers on the neck just like the original Hofner 1960s model. You’ll certainly stand out from the crowd playing a Hofner Verythin CT. It truly is a versatile guitar at a very affordable price. Finish: Sunburst or Transparent Red or Black. – Wood Top: Maple – Wood Back: Maple – Wood Sides: Maple – Centreblock: Spruce – Neck: Maple – Fingerboard: Rosewood – Scale: 24.7″/62.8cm – Nut Width: 44mm – Number Of Frets: 22 – Pickup Neck: Hofner Full Size Humbucker Nickel – Pickup Bridge: Hofner Full Size Humbucker Nickel

Traditional English music and song session, Packhorse , Longport are actively fostering instrument playing to our audience, bedroom musicians, we start by playing a tune through for the benefit of our starters…..based on tin whistle leading the tune followed by as many as will on tin whistle…if cant play tune then mine, low sound…But are participating as musician in the session…..then the band kick in.
