Hofner "Sudbury Stash" President
Ruby Red Sunburst
Pre-Owned Circa 1961-1963 - Excellent

The "Sudbury Stash" is a group of finished, partially finished, and unfinished archtop guitars and related parts purchased directly from Hofner by luthier and violin dealer Peter Kessler in the late 1980's. Peter was at the old Hofner plant in Bubenreuth on a routine buying trip for luthiery supplies, and happened to be shown a storage room where all of the unsold, unassembled, and factory second stock was mouldering. He bought it all and shipped it to his shop, Kessler's Violin Shop in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.
