These are the ones with the word HOHNER in large letters vertical on the headstock. Models to look for are the "G" and "HG" but be sure the headstock logo is as I described. I recently purchased 2 Hohner acoustics- Made in Japan. The MIJ Hohners were copied from Martins and really nail it, maybe even better. Ironically, I saw one of those hanging in a pawn shop today for .95 - a 12 string.
I will never sell this guitar, it's been with me too long.
It has an adjustable saddle, is a dreadnought design, solid cedar top and rosewood fretboard.
Playing a Hohner guitar has at least one major disadvantage, however--It's impossible for a Hohner owner to tell for certain when the guitar was made.
Unlike other guitar makers that use specifically coded serial numbers to signify a guitar's month and date of production, no such system exists for Hohner guitars.
didn't indicate whether your guitar's label had the model number. Some of the models in the list have specs / details in the description column that help with identification.
Years ago, Hohner was good about responding to inquiries. but it's the name on the headstock that lets you know it's a guitar that can't be replaced for $5K.
Hohner has been making moderately priced acoustic guitars since the 1970s.
Beginning players favour them for their inexpensive pricing and solid construction.
A friend of mine has one of the Hohners with the vertical logo. He also has a Martin that he sometimes brings, but I know for a fact he also loves that Hohner. He looked up at me while playing it and said "00, you couldn't replace it for 00! I still don't think I'd go that high but there really are a lot of unsung gems out there to be had.
You just have to ignore the name on the head stick. It doesn't have anything on the headstock but has a label inside saying that it is a hohner.
He thought it was a great guitar and does sound good for what it is, a mahogany laminate. However, it stays in the case most of the time as my Martin is my main guitar. I acquired the HG 360R off shopgoodwill - after searching many years for any 360. Mine has been played by many players of expensive high end guitars and it never fails to impress.
