The Hofner Shorty was first produced back in the 1980s and Hofner continue to offer this compact travel guitar for those guitarists who can't bear to be without a guitar even when on holiday! The Hofner Shorty offers full scale length combined with such small overall dimensions that it can be taken anywhere. It fits easily into the overhead locker on most aircraft for example. The compact size also makes it perfect for lounging on your couch and noodling on the Shorty. Including a Hofner gigbag.
Did you know that the Shorty guitar is quickly and easily adapted to a lap-steel guitar? All you need is a very in-expensive nut extension and you are ready to go!
