I'm renovating a 1954/5 Hofner Senator and I need to get hold of 6 machine heads and a bridge.

Ideally I'm looking to use original parts, so there's a bit of budget available.

Anybody?

Good morning, Paul...

Have you had a look here (scroll down...)..?

Project Guitar Parts, Hofner...

... You may need adequate ferrules and screws, too, for the machine heads. Check ferrule dimensions, though, they're not all the same.

Thanks Dad, I was looking on there last night. I'm after original 1954 Hofner hardware, not NOS stuff, but thanks for the link.

In that case, have you tried posting your needs here..?
