Hofner Verythin Deluxe reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the January issue of the magazine features a review of Verythin Deluxe semi-acoustic guitar from Hofner. The instrument was delivered for review by Hofner distributor in Poland, Sonorus.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Krzysztof Blas:

“The instrument is very light. It should therefore vibrate easily and be vulnerable to articulation. Despite a hollow body, the guitar is well balanced – the weight of the headstock is mostly equalized by a wooden center block inside of the body, although its primary purpose is to prevent unwanted feedback when playing with distorted sound.”

“Verythin vibrates just like it had a fully hollow body. You can clearly hear those specific middle frequencies that give an impression of a small, hollow body.”

“Verythin Deluxe sounds very bright and clear acoustically, although, after plugging it to an amp you can be really surprised as the tone you’ll hear is completely different: dark, with strong bass response and the high end backed off. The pickups used totally change the character of this instrument.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
