Hofner 492 E 12 strings 1967
Pine-spruce top with sides and curly maple back. Rosewood fingerboard, Jumbo round-shoulder. It has a large body with round shoulders, a long scale, and is very deep, much wider on the sides than other models. This was the last year that these jumbo-sized bodies were built, from here they took the classic dreadnough shape.

It also has many small taps and scratches in the varnish, but no cracks or repairs. Perfect sound and adjustment: Height of the 6th string at the 12th fret is 2mm, and the 1st string at the 12th fret = 1.5mm.

The live sound impresses, it's brutal!

In video you can listen to the same model in electric version, although recorded in acoustic
