What we bought in the 1960s if we couldn't afford a Fender Strat. This is not in original condition but it HAS been thoroughly restored and is a great playing instrument. Professional refinish, rebound neck, profiled and repolished frets.
This was Hofner's attempt to outdo the Jaguar and Jazzmaster. Strictly speaking, this is a European or US model 176 Solid, not a Galaxie - the Galaxie was the UK and Commonwealth version distributed by Selmer, and it lacked the 5-way tone switch on the treble side.
