New Old Stock, Extremely Rare, Never Sold, From the Vault, Authentic Made in Germany
The Verythin was introduced in 2002 with nickel-plated hardware, and fitted with a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard with simple double dot fret-markers. Single layer binding was applied throughout. Highly figured anigre (African maple) for the body top & the back & sides. Stunning transparent amber and cherry finishes made this one of the most attractive of the Verythin versions. A stop tailpiece was used instead of the Lyre-style.
Unbound f-holes similar to those on the New President were used. These revealed the use of a very thin laminated top on the instrument. Thinner that the spruce-laminated top on the Verythin Classic. The scale length was 25.5″ and Gibson-style “top-hat” knobs were used.
The electrics on the Standard were initially two mini-humbuckers (Type 514), but around 2006, these were changed to Hofner’s full-size humbuckers (Type 515) to provide an even more traditional US-semi look.
