Dating hohner guitars

It had a classic "Musician's union say Keep music live' sticker on the bout. There is still evidence of me trying to scrap the thing off.

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 "$2000, you couldn't replace it for $5000! 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.

These days, your best bet (albeit a long shot) would be to chat with shop owners (the ma and pa type) that sold them during the years of production indicated on the historical models list.

These are the kind of shops that have old catalogues and sales / inventory records collecting dust in the attic.

is there anyway of finding out the year of manafacture of a Hohner by the serial number?

I'd love to know exactly how old my piece of crap guitar actually is.I had an art teacher who had one of them stuck to his brief case.This was in the mid/late 70's and at that time most teachers were ageing hippies Anyhow, back to the original topic...Speaking of crap, I highly recommend "The Smell of Success" with Billy Bob Thornton & Tia Leoni (and others). @ Wasabi65 This list will indicate the years a particular model was made.Years ago, Hohner was good about responding to inquiries.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.Because it belonged to him I will keep it along with his mandolin that I have no idea how to play. I, too, have a pair of vintage 1970s/80s MIJ Hohners. My 360M was badly damaged in 1986 and all I wanted was a replacement. https:// main guitar until I purchased my Martin M38 last year was an all solid wood (spruce top with RW back and sides) 1978 Hohner HG-320. I even had a collector of high end Martins play it and was telling him how much I paid and that as a "player" I couldn't replace it for under 00.These days, your best bet (albeit a long shot) would be to chat with shop owners (the ma and pa type) that sold them during the years of production indicated on the historical models list. You just got to know which ones Lucky us if everyone continues to think they're crap ....These are the kind of shops that have old catalogues and sales / inventory records collecting dust in the attic. especially the unwitting seller who can't believe we're buying such crap.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. It had a security strap wrapped around the neck so I wasn't able to take it down, but I strummed it with my finger and though it was missing a few strings, it really sounded good! Pretty sure the name was positioned vertically on the headstock.I have a G-910 made in 1980 that belonged to my Dad.
