Arrived 7th October 2001



My son Christopher loves playing it, but "prefers the Viking for looks"!
                            - I'm tempted to say it's the best player of the UK collection
... so the USA missed out by "Fending" off this one for sure!

H III Scandi from 1976 - Number 112 from a batch of 207 only!

People sometimes quote legal battles with Fender...
well if ever there was going to be one (apparently there wasn't)
The Scandi has more of the hallmarks than a Hag III don't you think?
It's a fabulous player, low comfortable action, a perfect weight
very solid, great for thrash or bend (rhythm or lead) - a wild one!

Catalogue Excerpt:
Scandi Guitar and Scanbass
If you are looking for a guitar or bass guitar which is ultimate in tonal, electrical and woodwork quality, ask your Hagstrom Dealer for a demonstration of the Hagstrom Scandi and Scanbass. Hagstrom is well known everywhere for making THE WORLD'S FASTEST NECKS! The secret in our necks is the world patented H expander rail, which enables us to make the slimmest necks you have ever seen, without any risk of warping or twisting. We give you a ten year warranty on that.
Some of the American guitar makers boast about their highly automatized production. We at Hagstrom use machines only where these can do a better job than man. Take a close look at any Hagstrom instrument and you will find the difference between our handmade guitar and their highly machine produced guitar. When you buy a Hagstrom you get your money's worth.

OK - So you find catalogue pages too biased?
How about the most critical assessment you can find
- from a guitar Luthier / Soloist / Repairer called Stephen Delft? (CLICK THIS LINE)

The second version has the upgraded bridge and tail (like the late Swede and Superswede)

...and a proud headstock - just in case you wondered what this beauty was called

Quite rare, I love the natural finish - to own two is a real honour.
(It did come in colours too)

Mind you, I've lost the original one to the guy below!

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!
