Date and info about my 12 string Hohner guitar


#1

Hello!

My grandparent gave me as a gift a Hohner HGK512, serial number 995074.

I would like to know if this model has special needings when it comes to tuning, because I feel like the strings have kind of too much tension on them and I wouldn’t like to crack the bridge or something worse.

Btw, the sound this guitar have is really amazing, I’m completely surprised.

Thanks in advance and greetings from México!

Dear Ragginet,
Thanks for your mail. Great, you inherited such a great instrument from your grandfather. You’re lucky.
From what I’ve researched that model was built end of the 80ies/ beginning of 90ies. The model is around 25 years old and the people that build that model left the compalny a long time before I joined the hohner company. Im sorry I have no idea about tuning characteristics of that model. Anyone else out there who has that model?
