Holy moly, what a gorgeous guitar!!

Made in 1987 in either Japan or Korea.

L59 means, basically, 'Les Paul copy', and the T stands for the tremolo system on there.

Worth $500 or more dollars.

Fantastic instrument.

😃 👍

Phil:
I e-mailed Hohner with the below response:

"Hohner has been making guitars since the 60’s. They’ve made nearly every model electric, acoustic, and bass guitar, mandolins, banjos, etc. Up until the late 80’s, production was primarily run by Hohner Germany, not USA. Unfortunately during all this time, no records were kept. We have a small list the current production manager put together but it only represents about 30% of the Hohner line. This is the only information I have on this model:
Production: 1985-1988; MSRP: 790 DM; Bridge: Tremolo - Pickups: 2 Humbucker; 3-way toggle switch; vol/vol/tone; rosewood fingerboard; colour: violin finish"

This is the best they can do.
Sorry Bud,
