Hofner Neck Joint


Recommended Posts

A colleague brought me his 1974 Hofner 12-string with the neck pulling to one side. After removing the strings I found there was at least 3mm movement side to side and up and down of the neck. Releasing the neck screw I discovered a really strange hook and plate system securing the neck. Has anybody repaired/removed this system and converted to a bolt on neck? For a picture of the Hofner system have a look at:Hofner neck joint

I replaced the set screw arrangement and it worked pretty well

How did you remove the hook arrangement? How is it fixed into the neck block? Did you cut a proper neck joint and bolt on the neck?

Keith, I didn't replace the hook arrangement, just the set screw part. I glued in a bushing and used a new set screw. I don't remember how the hook arrangement is fixed in neck block.
