A 1971-2 (?) Hagstrom Catalogue: (Electrics)



Catalogue text (Left to right):

"Swede" - The brand new - but still traditional - Hagstrom Electric guitar named "The Swede". Two very special HAGSTROM pickups, "anti-hum", sensitive, and with peak-efficiency. Both pickups activated by separate volume and tone controls and by two 3 position switches. The upper switch for the tone - sharp, mellow, and deep pre-fixed levels, independent of the pickups in use - and the lower switch for the choice of pickups - lead pickup, rhythm (both in use), and bass pickup, enabling numerous combinations and possibilities when mixed with the tone control. A perfect intonation is made possible by the unique bridge which allows individual adjustment of each string horizontally and vertically. This guitar features an ebony neck. Now being used by many leading professionals. CHERRY

"Jimmy D'Aquisto" - HAGSTROM invited the most experienced guitar-builder of the 20th century, Jimmy D'Aquisto, to make an exclusive guitar. A combination of century old precision in guitar making and modern workmanship resulted in this electric-acoustic guitar, which we have named HAGSTROM JIMMY. To start from the top, the tuning machines secure a precise tuning and a steady position. The pick-ups are, once again, a master piece, specially made to pick up the various moods of the player, and responding so fast and accurate that even the most critical artist finds it hard to believe - and they are of course "anti-hum". The bridge enables the most precise micro-adjustment of each string horizontally as well as vertically. The two 3 position switches are for the tone and choice of pickups. The upper switch for sharp, mellow, and deep tones and the lower one for lead, rhythm and bass pickups. Each pickup has separate volume and tone controls. This is truly the most perfect combination ever to hit the electric-acoustic guitar. SUNBURST
Someone had written in pencil next to the text: *Special Order (900C$)

V-1N - HAGSTROMS new guitar. Designed to meet the rapidly increasing demand for the electro-acoustic sound. Two powerful hi-gain pickups eliminate all unwanted sounds and give exceptionally wide tonal range. Slim, fast, low action neck; head in the modern new style, fitted with high-accuracy chromium-plated machine heads. Bridge adjustable for height and position to permit fine tuning of individual strings. The overall high standard finish and performance make this guitar comparable with the finest models available today. A new guitar destined to become a firm favourite. SUNBURST AND CHERRY

F200N - This is the HAGSTROM SPECIAL. A solid body guitar with two "anti-hum", peak-efficiency pickups. Separate volume and tone control for each pickup. Also a 3-position switch enabling a choice of pickup sounds. A treble position to create a vigorous bright rock sound. A neutral position for a more round and warm tone, often preferred for rhythm chords, and a bass position for the lush and lovely, but still melodic blues sound. Combined with adjustment of the tone controls, the choice of sounds becomes infinite. Additionally a special HAGSTROM "On-Off" switch enables the player to disconnect the pickups without touching the cable and the amplifier, and prevents the pickups from producing unwanted sounds during the stand-by period.      Also without Tremelo # F200-OT     CHERRY - SUNBURST -  BLACK

There's nothing like a REAL original Swedish made Hagstrom (and there are loads around), but if it 'floats your boat', or you can't find an original then who are we to say?

Plenty has been said already and
will be said forever forward probably.
Only you know what's right for you!
