Hohner SE 400


I have had one of these guitars for 5 years, i did not buy it new.
It has given me much pleasure and now I wanted to find out a little more about it. Does anyone know how to date, where made, spec, components, reviews, number made or anything else about these guitars? Much appreciated. Woody

Hi Woody,

I post a lot of vintage guitar literature on my website VintAxe.com. I've got a load of Hohner stuff that is not up on the site yet. Give me some idea of when you believe your guitar was made and I'll see if I have the catalog that originally advertised it. Original catalogs are a great source of information for components, specs, prices, etc. SB

Hi SB,

Thanks for that I will check out your website. I am not sure how old it is and there is not much on the web about the SE 400 in general. I think its an 80's guitar. I think it has gold plated hardware and Humbacker pickups, it has inlay on the neck. It seems very well setup and is quite load to play acoustically which is why I bought it. I would really like to date it and know where it was made. I tried asking Hohner direct but they say they only answer US email and I am in the UK.

Grrrrrrr.... don't you hate companies who think that it's the America Wide Web, and not the World Wide Web?

Someone has told me they were still available New in 1997 in the UK for £445 so it is not that old. It also looks similar to a Hohner HS 40.

It may have been "New Old Stock".
