"AC" on the headstock are not the initials of the owner.

This must be one of the first Club 60´s with the new "wide" headstock that replaced the more slender type that was used during the late fifties. This guitar is also fitted with a trussrod, introduced in 1960 on most Hofner models. "Toaster" pickups where used on all Club´s for short period around 1960-61 but soon replaced by "Diamond logo" pickups in late 1961. Ron Warner in the UK bought this guitar back in 1969 .
