Saturn 63
circa 1963

Saturn 63 sunburst This semi-hollow body arch top is a Saturn 63, perhaps the most successful guitar from German manufacturer, HOPF, made in 1963. It was made with a carved spruce top and maple back that come together seamlessly. Two teardrop sound holes with chrome binding are located on the bass side of the body. The guitar features a satiny smooth tremolo tailpiece and a rocker mounted adjustable bridge. It has a "futuristic", space-age design inspired by the early 1960's era of exploration off of the Earth. The unique look of this model, with its metal piping for binding on the body and f-holes, got the guitar a starring role in an advertisement for the famous "Star Club" in Hamburg. Robert Smith of the Cure played one of these in his 1992 video, "Friday I'm In Love". This Saturn 63 is 100% original and in excellent condition, great for playing and collecting. It looks really good for its age. With its wonderful warm, big tones, it plays and sounds terrific. Make sure you get hold of this really rare model before someone else does at this great
