First impressions of my Hofner Colorama with p90 style pups.

I like the sound of the pickups overdriven. Clean they sounded pretty weak, but I won't be playing them clean much.


Fit and finish? Well, no glaring finish issues, but the frets are clangy and not dressed well. There are burrs which don't go outward off the fretboard so they don't catch you, but you can see they weren't done well. The burrs go inward onto the fretboard. After stringing up some fender .10 gauge strings I am thinking the frets need some real dressing. May even need some leveling. This reminds me of the SX tele I bought last year.


I like the look of it and the overdriven tones are pretty good, but the frets aren't good to go. :rolleyes:
