The President was the main “middle-of-the-range” archtop in the Selmer catalogue between about 1953 and 1972/73 when it finally disappeared. It was really a deluxe version of the Hofner Model 457, which was also introduced around 1954.
Carved solid spruce body top, and flamed maple back and sides. Machine heads are single, open units, with solid brass barrels. Has a Rosewood fingerboard, “compensator” style tailpiece. Two “Black-Bar” pickups.
Comes with case
