About This Listing

This is the model „Saturn 63“ by „Hopf“. Hopf was a german luthier, who produced all kinds of instruments during the golden age of german guitarmaking between the 1950s and the 1980s. They where famous for their unique designs and the diverse sounds of their guitars. They made a lot of famous electric models, like The „Saturn 63“ or the „Telstar“, but had really fine archtops and Semi-acoustics too.

The guitar is in really good shape for its age over all, but has some wear, as you can see in the pictures. The tuners have been replaced with the expensive Schaller tuners from the 60s and the output jack was changed to a modern one. The electronics are fully functioning, the switches and potis work perfectly and the pickups produce a nice and distinctive vintage sound, perfect for the music of the 60s and 70s. The neck is straight and the action is low, therefore it is comfortable to play. The neck was repaired at the top, as you can see in the pictures. The frets where polished, the fretboard was oiled and the strings are new too!

The guitar can be played immediatly.

If you have any questions left, or if you need more pictures, feel free to ask :-)

About shipping:

I ship worldwide with DHL and with the DHL-shipping insurance wich goes up to 500€. I am not going to lie to you or blandish a possible transport risk like some other people do. International shipping can be dangerous and packages are sometimes treated roughly. If you however choose to have an international shipment, I will do my absolute best to protect the guitar. I have collected a lot of experience in the past on how to ship a guitar securely. I will take photos of the packaging and the exact condition of the guitar right before I ship it. You should know, that after shipping the guitar and entering the shipping number, I am not responsible for anything anymore and my job is done. But I will gladly back you up with the insurance case with said photos and exact details in the rare case anything goes wrong. The standart insurance I ship all guitars with is up to 500€. If you want a higher insurance, you can get that, just ask me first. Some countrys outside of the EU also have import taxes, be aware of that. Please note, that international shipping can sometimes take very long, on average 2 weeks for EU shipping and 1 month for intercontinental shipping, but it can take up to 3 times that time in some very rare cases.

Legal:

Taxation after UStG §25a. I usually take back everything you buy from me within 14 days after the arrival of the package. The conditions are, that everything is in the original condition I shipped it in and the shipping costs are carryed by the buyer.
