One of the Cadillacs of vintage guitars! A 1967 Made in Sweden, Hagstrom III WITH the original form fitting Deluxe Softshell Case..

I have had many Vintage Hagstrom guitars. This is the first Hagstrom III I have found and it is a beauty. It takes a lot for me to grade a guitar as Excellent. This one definitely qualifies. What a guitar!

This beautiful guitar was completely gone over by out Techs and is operating as it should. We set it up with awesome low playing action for playing comfort. The necks were known in the day as the fastest guitar necks due to the low frets and slim necks. Always fun to play these cool guitars.

We dated this guitar to 1967 from the serial number that starts with 67…. See pics.

This guitar is all original to include the tuners, pickups, bridge, Hagstrom bridge and whammy bar, switches, logos and decals. Don’t forget the awesome Hagstrom Deluxe Softshell Case. Its is in as great shape as the guitar. Check those pics..

Heres some info I found on the web regarding these cool guitars…

A Pioneering guitar in style and function.

HAGSTROM COMPANY.
Hagström [ˈhɑːɡstrœm] is a musical instrument manufacturer in Älvdalen, Dalecarlia, Sweden. Their original products were accordions that they initially imported from Germany and then Italy before opening their own facility in 1932. During the late 1950s, the company started making electric guitars and late ramplifiers. The early guitars were heavily influenced by the accordion production and had a special look and feel. Hagström were the first company to mass-produce 8 string bass guitars as well as the first to build a guitar/synthesizer hybrid (Swede Patch 2000). The company ceased production in 1983.

Guitar players and collectors consider HAGSTROM Guitars as being one of the iconic brands of all time and their guitars being some of the best made during the company’s existence. Hagstrom claimed that its guitars as having the “fastest playing necks in the industry”.

HAGSTROM GUITARS in the 1960’s: The Hagstrom III.

Eager to join the pop music explosion of the 1960’s, which was heavily dependent on guitars that had “style”, were “cool”, and were “feature loaded” (like the competing, and now iconic, styles of the Gibson Firebird, the Fender Jaguar, and Mosrites Ventures), Hagstrom’s incredibly talented design staff came up with the “pop design styles” of the Hagstrom I II and III.

Hagstrom I, 1965-1971. Basically the same guitar as the Kent (vinyl covered body and acrylatic front) but with adjustable pick ups and narrower neck. The fact that the Hagstrom I guitar has two pick ups is a bit confusing as the Hagstrom II also have two pick ups and the Hagstrom III have three pick ups! In the late 1960's and early 1970's a rare bird appears witch is actually a one pick up Hagstrom I designed for the Canadian market. Known colors - Hagstrom I with acrylic front: red, blue, black and white. Hagstrom I - solid body with one pick up: sunburst.

 

Hagstrom II, 1963-1965. Basically the same body shape as the Hagstrom I and the Kent guitars but with solid lacquered bodies. The Hagstrom II guitar was also branded Futurama and sold by Selmer on the UK market. All Hagstrom II and Futurama guitars from this period have bevelled edges (compare with the Kent II and Kent III guitars witch seems to be the same guitar, but with rounded egdes on the body). Known colors: red, blue and sea foam green.

 

Hagstrom II, 1965-1972. From 1965 the bodies got a more "SG" like shape and pick ups with pickup rings. The first guitars with this design appears as Hagstrom De Luxe in the production log. Known colors: red, blue, black, white, translucent red and sunburst.

 

Hagstrom III, 1963-1965. Same story as for Hagstrom II above.

 

Hagstrom III, 1965-1972. Same story as for Hagstrom III above.

No maladies that I can point out…it’s a beautiful all original example of a 1967 Hagstrom III…It only has minor and superficial dings and scratches as expected on a 1960’s vintage guitar.

This guitar is cool but sold as-is no returns as its vintage and used. However, I have been hand picking my customers guitar for close to 20 years now and all my customers love the guitars I find. This one will not be an exception.

Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
