This is a Hofner CT Club Guitar review, an affordable addition to their line of instruments. Hofner is a manufacturer that has both affordable and very pricey guitars. Their claim to fame is actually the violin shaped bass made famous by Paul McCartney which he played with the Beatles. The Hofner CT Club is a semi-hollow body jazz type guitar, and the sound isn’t like say an ES-335 at all, it’s actually more twangy. Like a Tele, but minus a bit of the nasally sound. It’s very lightweight, and of course the shape gives it that “vintage” vibe.

Here’s a YouTube video of the Hofner guitar in action, you just can’t deny how amazing it sounds:

The Hofner CT Club is a semi-hollow electric guitar that provides warm, full tone and the brightness to make individual notes sing. The CT Club has a spruce top and eye-popping flamed maple back and sides. A strong, set maple neck is carved in a comfortable C shape, so you can play the CT Club guitar all night long. Two Hofner mini humbucker pickups kick out plenty of volume and sparkle, whether you’re wowing a jazz crowd or getting a little funky with your wah-wah pedal.Hofner has a real affinity with the archtop acoustic jazz guitar. From the early ’50s, Hofner set standards for archtop design and manufacture with many famous guitar models such as the Senator, President and Golden Hofner, all of which are now collectors’ items.The Hofner tradition is carried forward today with their current range of jazz guitars and the Verythin family of guitar models.

The Hofner Club series of guitars ranges from the CT series at about $600, to higher end ones in the $1,500 range, and you can even usually find a few under $200 in the lower range on ebay:
