Höfner MODEL 456/S ACOUSTIC 1957
HOFNER MODEL 456

When Hofner re-commenced production in Moehrendorf, Bavaria after WW2 in 1949, the 456 was one of the archtop models offered. A very similar archtop had been produced with that model designation before the onset of the war when Hofner were based at Schoenbach inBohemia.
The 456 was intended to be Hofner's mid-range archtop, utilising nicely flamed maple for the body back & sides, with a maple top. A good standard of ornamentation was used on the guitar, with binding/multi-purfling around body top & back edges and soundholes, with the rosewood neck also bound. Pearloid strips wereused for the fretmarkers, and on all but the very earliest guitars,a pearloid/tortoishell/pearloid celluloid fascia covered the front of the headstock.
There can be problems differentiating between the 455, 456, and 457models, particularly as Hofner seems to have continually revised the detail cosmetics of these models over the years. The main basicdifference between the 456 and the slightly later 457 is that the 456 had a maple body top and the 457 had a spruce top. Both the455and the 456 had maple tops, but the ornamentation on the 456 wasofa higher standard than the 455. For example, the 455 was not provided with binding to the neck initially, though later examples (after the demise of the 456) did gain this feature.


Initially the 456 was only supplied in brown sunburst finish. Later, a natural blonde finish was available, and some examples even have a red-burst finish.
As with the rest of the Hofner range, the 456 was available from c1954 with the option of factory fitted electrics.
The 456 disappeared from the range in 1962, by which stage the 457 model would seem to have taken over as Hofner's principle mid-rangearchtop.
