SOLID ASH - WITH A MAPLE FRETBOARD!
BOTH OF THESE HISTORIC GUITARS ARE FOR SALE

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.
