  #018   Hofner  458S Black Beauty.  
       
 
  This was a delightful, old 458S  -  a true Black Beauty and was the inspiration for the black finish on La Provencale.

It still bore the engraved pickup and label from its original supplier Musikhaus Barth which I understand was once Germany's equivalent to Selmer's.

 

     
 
  The original white pearloid pickguard was missing  - I thought a black one would look much better!
