The perfect travelling companion just got even better – introducing the new Hofner Shorty Deluxe. Offering versatility and convenience in the one compact package, the deluxe model offers the same full-scale length and small overall dimensions as the original model, making it ideal for playing anywhere at any time, whether on the couch or on the road. What takes the Shorty Deluxe to the next level is the addition of twin Humbucker pick-ups, giving an extended range of tonal values to get the sound and warmth you want. And it looks just as great as it sounds, with a new headstock design reflecting the classic Hofner style. This guitar will fit in most overhead lockers in aircraft and comes with a durable, padded Höfner gig bag.

When changing the strings on a Shorty guitar. It is necessary to remove the bridge to change the strings. Completely slacken all strings and remove from the tuners. Slacken the 2 large bridge retaining screws, pull back the bridge and lift it out. The old strings can now be removed and new strings attached to the underside of the bridge. Replace the bridge and gently tighten the 2 screws. The new strings can now be wound onto the appropriate tuners.
