Dating a hagstrom guitar
I believe there is a steel reinforced rosewood neck and an ebony fingerboard.
The frets have mother of pearl inlays and the tuning pegs are chrome with white onyx looking grips There is no name on the head. The label is a shiny red and gold oval and just says Hagstrom, I don't believe there is a model name or number.
I really want to know from what year the guitar is and why it has a different tail piece can you help me with some information? Hagstrom III is the 62nd made of 100 in 1966 from a serial run of 659. I would highly recommend shipping insurance, but it is OPTIONAL and available at the buyer's discretion; if shipping insurance is not purchased, I will not be responsible for any possible damage that occurs during shipping. It is a second series IV Bass and not from the first series batched models. This bass is valued around ,000 (if one could be found).
The guitar is all original, never been touched except to play. IF ANYONE KNOWS WHARE I MIGHT FIND ONE-- THANKS-RHP : : I've got one ! : Hi guitar and original case in original condition. 3 pick-up sunburst with an awesome neck that is straight & true!
I have been told that it is the result of some production/model switch-around? I HAVE NEVER seen another one with TWO TOGGLE switches? : No fretboard or tail,but still in very good shape. : Or call: 358417795064/Tommi Hi Tommi, Can you please send me some pictures?
SERIAL NUMBER 731568 I can't seem ta upload a picture so I will link a video of it in action. v=Pm70r7UJu44 -Steve For those interested: Just posted my Scanbass for sale on Ebay. Or call: 358417795064/Tommi : I´ve got one and I´m broke. I was looking at a similar guitar in a music store in Helsinki last year.
In the Hagstrm retail-stores the guitars were sold under the name Bjrton.
As responsible for the retail-stores in Scandinavia I visited regularly all stores.
It has rectangular pearl fret inlays instead of dots, fully bound headstock with Fleur de Lys, and a plain black pick-guard on a blonde body front. From the serial number, this example is from the mid sixties.
