Hohner ST-59 Professional in translucent "seafoam green"


First made in 1990 to replace the ST-57 model, this guitar was made before Hohner acquired the "Rockwood" name & moved production of those cheaper type guitars to China. Samick, for those who know, also made Fender Squier Teles/Strats & also guitars for Epiphone, Yamaha etc. It comes all original including the revolutionary passive pickups with ATN [Advanced Tonal Network] circuitry where all the pickups are wired into a big capacitor. The body is in solid Indonesian Alder, the skunk neck is one-piece Canadian Rock Maple & fretboard is Indian Rosewood. The hardware is golden.

Absolutely mint condition, possibly an ex-demo guitar. 3 quality Korean (possibly Gifmen) single coil pickups, one volume & two tone pots (all 250K for better quality sound) with 5-way switch. Lovely smooth & thin neck with zero fret wear - the intonation is spot on & action great. The classic trem is full active and there is a whammy bar (all chrome not gold).
