Please find enclosed my membership application. I paid £16 for my green Hobner from a car boot sale 3 years ago it came with a soft case. It differs from Kate's as it has a tombstone style headstock.

Looks like Kate has a different bridge as well.

I was thinking of fitting a cheap single coil pickup I have.

But thought it would look good with a couple of gold humbuckers.

I have a Hobner that I don't play. It doesn't stay in tune, and the action is abnormally high. I don't have the patience to install new tuners and bridge.

If somebody wants it, let me know.

Sorry, I'm not able to link the photos. I don't know how. If someone's interested, send me an email address and I'll send the photos and I'll make a video if needed.
