Hofners were popular and relatively inexpensive when compared to the Fenders. They produce great sounds too. But amongst the band boys the whisper was, "Nothing like a Fender!"

A Singapore guitar group in the 60s usually started off with a Hofner and after many gigs to its name might end up buying a Fender. While a Fender would cost $800 then, a Hofner was cheaper. But the sound's different.
