ELECTRIC GUITARS: Höfner New Committee

Höfner New Commitee

The hollow body has a spruce top with flamed maple back and sides and a one-piece maple neck with ebony fingerboard and full-width pearloid position markers.

Latest archtop from German guitar manufacturer borrows a number of features from the original 1950s/60s model.

The New Committee is the the latest German-built archtop guitar from Höfner.

The prototype was completed last week and production, in limited edition batches, will begin shortly. The guitar is a new model, but takes much of its design and dimensions from the Höfner Committee from the 1950s and '60s.

The hollow body has a spruce top with flamed maple back and sides and a one-piece maple neck with ebony fingerboard and full-width pearloid position markers. Hardware consists of a pair of Höfner nickel staple pickups, a three-way switch, as well as two Tone and two Volume controls.

The traditional Höfner ebony height-adjustable bridge is also included, together with a Höfner lyre style tailpiece. Deep pearloid binding and purfling gives the guitar the classic style associated with its predecessor. The New Committee will appeal to professionals and collectors seeking a stylish and strong guitar offering classic jazz tones, but with the ability to move into rock territory if required.

Barnes & Mullins is the UK distributor for Höfner.
