Vintage Hofner 176 Galaxie in Woodbridge VA for $275

Here is a nice looking Galaxie; 3 pickup solidbody guitar made in Germany in mid to late 60's,    These Hofner pickups can sound pretty good - sort of a more full range P-90 sound.   You don't see these too often.   Thumbwheel controls are sort of a pain in the a** but do give it major vintage vibe.

Vintage 1975 Hofner 176 "Galaxie"... NOT A REISSUE! All original hardware!
