PRESS RELEASE: SCB (Music) Ltd | 20th December 2013

SCB Music Ltd are very happy to announce Shaun C Bryant’s new endorsement deal with Hofner Guitars.

Hofner originally made the highly recognisable violin bass guitar model used by Paul McCartney and, most recently, have developed a signature bass guitar for Budge McGraw of the band, The Cesarians.

Shaun quotes,

“I am extremely happy to be working with Hofner Guitars. Their heritage and reputation is second to none, plus, they create great products that demonstrate their commitment to quality and longevity. I am looking forward to delivery of my first Hofner acoustic very shortly and look forward to long and fruitful relationship with them.”

Hofner History:

Höfner was established in 1887 by Karl Höfner who was followed by two of his sons and his grandaughter in developing the company into a world leading instrument manufacturer. Today we are the largest manufacturer of stringed instruments in Western Europe exporting products throughout the world through our extensive dealer network. We also produce a large range of classical and acoustic guitars and an exciting range of electric guitars.

We are located at Hagenau, Bavaria, Germany and also at Beijing, China. Our workshops employ many highly skilled craftsmen who hand build many of our product lines. We employ traditional methods together with cutting edge technology in order to produce world class instruments and set ourselves extremely high quality standards. We may be one of the largest in Europe but we are still small enough to be individual and we think that matters. We have no production lines and no robots, but we do have workshops. Yes we have machinery, but we design and build most of that ourselves. We are proud that everyone at Höfner knows one another, that we all work together, we all solve problems together and we develop our products together. We are proud that our staff stay with us for years, often for a lifetime. Hofner has always been a family affair and remains so today.

We work closely with the European Guitar Teachers Association and the European String Teachers Association to develop and produce quality instruments for students of all ages. Many of our violins and classical guitars are available in a range of sizes starting at 1/4. We offer classical guitars from 1/4 size and stringed instruments from 1/16 size.

Our electric guitars are used by some of the most discerning professional players who demand quality, tone and playability. Our Violin Bass has become one of the world’s iconic guitars and remains, after 55 years, as the preferred bass guitar for many, from those starting out to seasoned professionals. Our electric guitar product line has expanded in recent years to accomodate those who aspire to owning a classic brand but at an affordable price. We have achieved this through our CT (‘Contemporary’) line of instruments, built using classic Höfner design and quality but offered at a price point that enables everyone to experience the thrill of playing a Höfner guitar.
