Made in Germany, 1965-1971 It bears the  raised plastic headstock logo. I've listed it for £600 or best offer because I know the parts are worth a lot of money, it's a shame to break it though, Condition: Showing little sign of use anywhere. Importantly, the frets are in excellent condition and appear to be the originals. Body neck and fingerboard are excellent without splits or cracks. The pickup is an Evil Sheep (Hand wound in Yorkshire) housed in a Hofner Diamond case. The potentiometers are original and in very good order. There is a little crackle on the tone when moved. It should go with use, but it is unlikely to cause a problem during normal use.
The bridge is a correct style modern replacement. It does not fully cover the footprint of the previous bridge. It currently sports a new set of Ernie Ball Regular Slinky strings. I've set it up to give the best intonation for a fixed bridge. It's not 100% and the G string is slightly sharpe when to other stings are correctly intoned. Fitting a modern tune-o-mastic style bridge is an option for perfect intonation. Please look at the photos. The are a good indicator of condition.
