    My Höfner J-17 Model is really deep bodied too, as their jazzboxes mostly are. It really is both cool and pretty! IMG_1426W1280.jpg IMG_1472h1080b.jpg

    afire, is that blond Höfner yours? It seems to be a late 50`s to early 60`s model. I had a Model 4560 in cherryburst too back in 60`s, but sold it in 1969. It was a mistake by me, it was a much better guitar than i understood back then. Silly me...

    Mine is an 02. From what I understand, they only made them for 2 years. Had to buy mine from a guy in Sweden.

    It's a 1961 President. It was mine, but long gone now. Beautiful guitar, played great, nearly perfect condition. But there was a time when I was pretty fickle with guitars.

    late to the party but since Audept showed his off, I guess I'll add mine - the Blue Ebony Jr.

    I understand completely, imagine she’s your favorite as to me that just may be the ultimate guitar, let alone the ultimate GreTsch. Had a Dyna’d Caddy Green w/Caddy tail ~10 years ago should’ve kept. Now a WF w/same configuration, my favorite but the spruce top of the Club may have made her tones just a smidge sweeter. I’d have to do a direct compare, but admittedly my ears have likely degraded a bit since.

    That’s a lovely top. It makes me want to keep looking at it as it’s more intriguing with both the nice flame and wood grain. Usually I see one or the other.

    I usually go plain top (no figuring) so they're usually "pretty" boring.

    My pictures always stink so... unnamed-2.jpg
