I know it is a long shot but have tried just about everything else I can think of. This is for a customer's 1959 or 1960 Senator, it is blond but the neck was lacquered dark tobacco. The original neck has a truss rod, and has a Selmer headstock with gold on black logos behind the clear plastic faceplate.
I need something that is in serviceable condition to replace the original neck, and if it has a headplate similar to the one described, so much the better. It is not vital that it is tobacco.
Thanks for looking and hope someone can help. I often hear people talk about things having sentimental value, but this is a genuine case of it. The original owner's son found that this guitar was the thing that brought his dad back from his Alzheimer's and into the real world, but sadly the father passed away last week.

Good luck.

Thank you for that. I have been trying to get some communication with Guitardoc Berlin for a couple of months, and finally last week got a reply from them saying almost all the old Hofner stock was gone, certainly no Senator necks remaining.

I'll check the bunker - I have a pile of Hofner necks and bodies around here somewhere. Send me your contact information.

Hi Nate, thanks very much for that. I sent you my contact info in a PM, but thought I had better flag it again here with the news of the forum needing to move.
All the best
Glen
