70s nostalgia

Posted on: 17th November 2008

Hi guy, you’ve made yet another sad old rocker wipe away tears of 70’s nostalgia, but as we all know, your first great guitar in your first great band is like your first true love, you never forget! Fortunately for everyone, no recordings exist to shatter the illusion!
I wonder if you could help. I’ve been trying to get hold of a red Hofner 172 exactly like the one shown on your site. Tragically I missed one for £175 recently. Do you ever come across them or know anywhere I can contact. This must be done with utmost secrecy as darling wife would wrap it around my head and set fire to the others if she found out. I’m trying to think of a way of pitching the idea as a sound investment for the children’s future? Any suggestions appreciated!
Many thanks, John
