1 RichB555 1 year ago I've been on the market for a Hofner Verithin after passing on Alpep's at the Philly Guitar Show. I made a low offer and subsequent deal on this '61, breaking my personal rule of steering clear of mods. This guitar entrigued me. The pickups are early 60s Vox, a selector switch has been added to the upper bass side bout, and the control panel and knobs have been changed. Mods appear to have been done decades ago.But who are the Roosters?
