1961 Hofner V3 and Selmer crocodile case

This 1961 Hofner V3 is an early example of the 'Strat-like' second version. It predates the Super Solid 3 and the Galaxie. It's in excellent condition, barring a few dings and the lacquer checking usual to these guitars, and is complete with trem arm and fittings, which are often missing. Original tuners, frets, etc. It's had a full setup, and is in excellent playing order. All the electrics are working fine.

The present owner has had it since 1963, and the receipt and original guarantee are included. It comes complete with its original "Slimline" Selmer case covered in a beautiful light grey imitation crocodile skin material. Heavy brass corner protectors were fitted, and the inside of the case was lined in crimson plush. These were expensive, 8 guineas (£8.40) in 1963, and are steadily going up in value these days. Having an original case in this condition is rare, and adds considerably to the value of this guitar.
