Hohner Guitar Model and Serial



I have a question about the 1970’s Hohner Telecaster Deluxe copy that’s widely discussed. I’ve seen two types of knobs advertised as original. 1) the classic “witch hat” knobs that are widely accepted as original 2) speed knobs in black. I’ve seen several pics of black speed knobs purporting to be factory original but all the catalog picture and most guitars for sale on the internet are the witch hat version. Can you please clear this up for me?

Hello Kristen, I’ve loved Hohner acoustic guitars ever since I first played one about 25 years ago. I finally bought one yesterday at a pawnshop, and she sounds and looks incredible; absolutely beautiful. I’m curious about when and where she was crafted though, can you help me out? She’s a model EA65CEQ acoustic electric, the preamp is labeled ‘Shadow P4’, serial number 1114D00085

Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance!

Any help is greatly appreciated - and Happy New Year!

The headstock has an abalone inlay with large vertical “HOHNER” logo. The whole acoustic is flamed wood…top, sides and back with brass nut, brass saddle and brass bridge pins…all original. Beautiful acoustic. Perhaps one of the best acoustics I’ve ever played. I have yet to see another one of these. Made in Japan, 1970’s. Has the number: 150107 on the inside neck area.

Hey all,

We have noticed that there is a great need and interest in the subject of historical guitar models. Hohner stopped the production and distribution of guitars some time ago, now we don’t have any real guitar specialists in our team anymore. So, we have compiled all the information available to us in a table for you and hope this can actively help you.




Hi Kristin,

If possible, I would like to get all the available information about my Hohner LP75 guitar. The serial number is 9039182. Do you have anything in the system?

Thank you very much for the help!


Hi, Kristin. I just bought a Hohner Les Paul with the serial: 8709125. Do you think it’s the same model? If not, could you give me specs and info, and maybe even price? Best Regards.


Kristin, this does not provide the info by serial number.
