    1958 Hofner Senator - Super Rare, John Lennon guitar

    selling or maybe swap my incredibly Rare 1958 Hofner Senator

    Great instrument and surprisingly versatile but the business for all things blues and Rock and Roll

    straight sale at 2500 or might consider a swap for a original 70's Fender Stratocaster, something like a 76,77 or even a nice 25th Anniversary from 1979

    this thing is 54 years old and a superior piece of kit

    2500 ono (ono does not mean 100)

    Where do you get a value of £2500 from?

    I did think this earlier, but viewed as the elephant in the room that i wasn't going to mention. is it john lennon's own senator? i thought he had a hofner president?

    I would say this guitars not worth more than 700 or 800. Even vintage and rare aren't looking for that kind of money for this model guitar. Also it's not exactly known for being a John Lennon model. You might want to rethink your ad and where you're selling it. I've seen plenty of guitars actually worth around 2k fail to sell on this site.

    To be fair, as it's his guitar, he can ask what he likes. Whether there are any interested buyers is another thing...

    They aren't rare at all..they are constantly on ebay and always sell for an average of £400. One sold a few weeks ago for around £130. Bearing that in mind I'll give you £200 for it :D

    this is true. on an unrelated note, i have a little tuner. good tuner, it can tune to any note. only looking £500 if anybody is interested?

    This is also true. Old hofners seem to be quite popular here, they were probably imported here long before fenders were. unfortunately for chaps like yourself, TBC, there isn't really any demand for an old hofner. If that was a 58 P bass, or a 58 tele, you probably would have gotten more than £2500. If i was you, i would hang on to it for a while, it could become more valuable in the future.

    tbh,if someone wants to pay through the nose for something thats up to them.people will do their research before parting with their hard earned readys.looks like a nice wee guitar but i wouldnt pay anywhere near what you're looking but if you find someone that does then fair enough

    sorry buddy far far far to expensive! as said before these very rarely sell for more than 500! it would need to be carved from john lennons own personal tree to be worth 2500
