  HOFNER PARTS.   

Vintage Bridges  #201 #202 #203 #204 #205 #206 and #207.

   
   
   
 
  These are all genuine Hofner Bridges,  made in Germany (not copies or Chinese made Briges).

All, except #203,  are NOS (unused) or brand new, purchased diredt from Hofner during a visit in 2010.

   
  #201  Early Club/124 Bridge in Rosewood.    Very rare.
 
  This is unused from the 50's and still needs its fret-wire saddles.   Just like new.   Exquisite.
   
  #202  Type 72/18 Bridge for Senator or Congress.
 
  Like new and unused  -  still does not have string slots cut in saddle.    It has more sculptured sides than later models and so is probably from the 50's.
   
  #203  Type 72/18a Bridge with plastic sliding saddles.
 
  Rosewood (not plastic) bridge incorporating sliding saddles.  It was Hofner's first attempt to allow for accurate string intonation.   Exactly right for your 50's restoration.
   
  #203a  Type 72/18a Ebony Bridge with plastic sliding saddles.
 
  New Old Stock.    Just like #203 above but in Ebony.  I bought these directly from Hofner a long while ago but have not used it.    Saddles have not been cut for string slots.
   
  #204  The saddle from a 50's/60's small body archtop.
 
   
  #205 & #206  Type 72/20 Bridge for Committee/President etc.
 
  New Old Stock.    I bought these directly from Hofner a long while ago but have not used them.    Saddles have not been cut for string slots.
     
  #207  Type 72/20 Rosewood Bridge for Committee etc.
 
  This type of bridge,  (ike the Committee but in Rosewood)  was used only on Hofner's Custom large archtops built in the 60's and 70's.    It is extremely rare and perfect if you need to replace such a bridge.

It is Vintage "New Old Stock".    I bought it from a German guitar maker about 12 years ago and it has never been used.   Saddles have not been cut for string slots.

   
  #208  Type 72/23 Micromatic Bridge.
