Hohner Contessa acoustic Dreadnaught in Atlanta GA area for $150

This seller (or reseller) is offering a 40+ year old West German made Honer Contessa acoustic. You will see these identified as Framus and Hofners on occasion but I am pretty sure that Contessa was a trademarked label of the Hohner company for musical items sold here in the United States all throughout the 1960's and early 1970's.

It certainly does resemble a Framus Texan so it may have been made in the same town or factory as the Framus line. The arched backs on these are a dead giveaway of their West German origin. The pickguards on these often bubble as they shrink over time thought this one appears to be okay.

All original old guitar with a few imperfections in appearance, but it sure is a good guitar to play. 50's or 60's vintage. This guitar has many unique features. The top is flat but the back is arched. You must see and play to appreciate. Call 770-***-**** for more information. No emails or texts.
