      I have one of these as well. HG 220 Limited Edition Series 1. S/N 160070. This little gem sounds and plays amazingly. I would love to find out more about her i.e year of manufacture and where she fits in the Hohner storey.

      Anybody know more? and no, not for sale.

      I too have an HG-220 Limited Edition. I got mine from my aunt in Canada around 1980. Not sure where she got it. Still use it and it sounds great.

      Hello, I picked up an hohner hg300, was advertised as a Martin d28 copy but a very knowledgeable gituarist says its a copy of the d35, to which by sound I agree. Does anyone have a comment about this. Love it and finally found my guitar!

      Well, I have some pamphlets with good info on some of the old Hohners. In particular, there was an early limited edition with the numbers HG 320 through HG370 that all had solid woods throughout and were wonderfully built. I’ve owned several and wouldn’t take a similar Martin in exchange. I have copies of this pamphlet available for download but can’t figure out how to post them.

      I can’t find anything on this model as well. It is a Limited Edition Series either 1 or I, and made in Japan. It is a Dreadnought style. I think the serial # is 160076.
      My Ex bought me this guitar in the mid-70’s. Bought it at her brother’s music store and think she paid $400 or so.
      To this day, this guitar looks just like new and sounds fantastic. It also stays tuned and very seldom needs adjustment, even though I haven’t used it much. However, I am getting to like it more and more all the time. Just in case you would be interested, it is not for sale.

      If anyone has any information on this model, I would certainly appreciate hearing from you.

      This guitar was hand crafted for Hohner by K.Yari in japan. 3 piece rosewood back and sides with a bearclaw spruce top. If it is in top condition it could fetch as much as $1000…D

      Not for sale but, real curious for a price as i cant find anything on it anywhere, as my friends just love the sound and feel. An old flame bought it as a birthday gift in the mid eighties and just thinking about it now, that’s 30 years ago. She’s gone but, I still have the great sounding pearl neck Hohner…. thx

        I also have an HG-230, looking for more info. Has a Limited Edition Series 1 wood badge inside the sound hole with model number (HG-230) and the Hohner name. 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.

      Hi everyone

      I have a Honher 318. It was my grandfathers guitar. It’s still in excellent shape. Does anyone have an idea how much this guitar might be worth?

      Any assistance would be appreciated!

      I recorded this fiddle tune on my Hohner HG 320.I get many compliments on the tone and questions about what expensive guitar was used to record this. 🙂

      Picked my HG320 up while it was on consignment here in FL for $350. Didn’t know much about them at the time but I played it and I won’t ever sell it. Not sure on the month it was made in but I know it’s a 78. Apparently the original owner bought it way back in the day and played it maybe a total of ten times. Sat in his closet for 20 years and then he finally decided to part ways with it. Lucky me. Thanks for all of the info!

      I too have a HG320. Had it since new back in the 70,s.Still in showroom condition with all original gear including hard case, shoulder strap and everything it came withfrom new.I myself never pursued playing (hence its great condition) but do have several friends that do and they are all amazed at thhis guitar. Every one of them want it.I was toying with the idea of selling it, if only for the fact that someone who knows this guitar could truly appreciate it. With that said I would be interested in some offers (obviouslyI would have my friends in on it too) it seems to me that it would be a waste for tis Hohner not get played more.

      I have the same guitar purchased in 1977 or 1978 for around $320.00 including the case. I bought it Tolzein Music in Amarillo Texas. It has always been and still is a great guitar. In trying to establish a value, I read somewhere that it was roughly worth the exact value that I bought it for in 77 or 78. While I was in college, there was a specialty shopping center called Olls Podrida in North Dallas, and there was a guitar and Banjo shop the made hand crafted wooden banjoes. He also bought sold and repaired Hohner HG320 guitars. He had maybe 15-20 of them either for sale or in for minor repairs. I cannot find out who he was but did get info from a guitar repair legend in Dallas that the guitar in the rough condition that mine is in (lots of gigs and loys of miles) that it was worth about $375 with the original case. My original case it pretty beat up. I wouldn’t take $5000 for that guitar. Too many memories and my son still prefers to play it over the other 7 guitars we have between us. If I ever fine the repair guy, I will re-post his info.

      im trying to find out what year the hohner classical acoustic guitar HG-318 was made and how much it could be valued at now.

      They’re rarely ever for sale as they’re wore WAY more as a player than they fetch monetarily. I paid $219 for mine in 1997 and that included a new case. The HG-320’s I’ve seen for sale on ebay have been fetching between $400-$600. I’d have to spend at least $2000 to replace my HG-320 with a guitar of equal quality and sound. hence, I’ll never part with it.

        I have a Hohner HG320 Limited Edition. It’s dated 7-76 inside and I received it as a graduation gift in June of 1977. I’ve read that this was the “Martin lawsuit” guitar. I can’t find much else about them, much less a value. I think that people that have them are holding tight to them because they are phenomenal! Light, easy, fast action, rich bass and clear, ringing high notes. It stays in tune. I can’t say enough good things about this guitar. I’ll never part with it.

      I bought a Hohner 320 Limited Edition back around 1975 and still have it today. I paid about $300 for it. Today I have played some Martins and Taylors and to be honest about it, I wouldn’t trade this Hohner for any Martin or Taylor I have played. This is one really nice guitar, plays well and still looks great!! NO!! It is NOT for sale!!

I got it with a medium quality hard body case. In other words, when I bought it 27 years ago, It was a very expensive guitar. I’m trying to find a relative value for it now, so if you’ve learnde anything else, I’ll be anxious to hear. It has always been a beautiful sounding guitar which I have considered player friendly. Let me know if you hear anything else.
