crikey thats a top site,
my dad got an old hofner style guitar given to him a while ago (someone found it in a skip!), was pretty battered so he had it all fixed up, there was no way of identifying the guitar, so we wrote in to Guitar Buyer mag a while ago, turns out it's an old Martin Coletti guitar, imported to britain from italy or czech, tried scouring the net but theres not much info around.
after having the neck reset, a new bridge & tailpiece, pickup fitted, the guitar sounds & plays ace.
pic of me dad playing it............
