Longtime German Heavy Metal Band Accept lead guitarist Wolf Hoffman will be selling some of his prized gear on reverb.com. The Official Wolf Hoffmann of Accept Reverb Shop opens for business Wednesday, October 28.
Items to be included in the sale are as follows: An original Dallas Rangemaster that Hoffmann used on all of Accept’s albums throughout the ’80s and ’90s, along with a 1980 50-Watt Marshall MK II that Hoffmann says he’s used “on just about every Accept album” since he bought it in the ’80s. Guitars on offer include a custom Hamer Wolf Hoffmann Stratocaster, a Hamer archtop electric, and a Charvel USA Custom Shop Stratocaster from Accept’s Blood of the Nations tour.
Hoffmann is also parting with a 1990s era Hamer Vector Korina guitar that was custom-built for him in the 1990s. “This guitar is one-of-a-kind,” Hoffmann tells us. “I used it at several festivals throughout Europe in 2005 and extensively in the studio.”
In addition to the aforementioned Marshall, a few other amps will be up for sale as well—a 1987 Marshall 50-Watt MK II made for Hoffmann by Marshall’s Dirk Baldringer amp and a Fender Princeton that allegedly came from The Who’s touring crew. “I kept the little amp for all these years imagining that maybe Pete Townsend might have jammed on it at some point,” Hoffmann says.
In a statement release Hoffman said the following: “These guitars and amps have been part of my life and my music for decades, appearing on Accept albums and tours as early as the 1980s,” Hoffmann says. “As tough as it is for me to part with these instruments, I’ll be happy to see them find a new home in the hands of the next generation of heavy metal players.”
