Paul from Canadian band "The Ryecatchers" contacted me recently about obtaining an HIIB.
Having used one for some time, he wanted to find one of his own...

"I'm Paul from the band "ryecatchers" and I've used this HIIBN for quite some time now. I like playing, but it's actually my friends, so I wouldn't mind one myself. What are they worth and do you have any for sale?"
and then...
"Glad you liked the site, although I'm in the process of completely re-vamping it to make it more "pro" looking and such. My guitarist actually has a Hagstrom III and a Viking as well. The Viking is the "best" feedback guitar ever! Guitar solo's through a Marshall amp are HUGE! Awesome sound. Yeah, go ahead and put a link to my site on the picture. Cheers! Paul."

 

One thing led to another, and I have since had the pleasure of hearing their CD (released in Canada).
I can not improve on one of the many reviews to be found at their own website - one reproduced here:

This is a Canadian band that could easily be described as "Oasis with much more diversity", and I mean it as a compliment! Had they appeared sometime in the first half of the '90s, they would've blown away every single Britpop band on their way. A combination of the moddish logo and the distinctive American sounding name, clearly describes the sound that blends British melodies and the powers of pop from the North American continent. In the Gallagherock-department, there's "Centre of the world", one of those stadium-sized ballads, then the 'Catchers plug out their guitars for a gentler rendition of "Waiting for the moment", which sounds like an unreleased B-side, you know those with Noel sounding so beautifully personal in an extremely melodic way. "Blown away" comes out like Liam fronting Ocean Colour Scene in a MODern freakbeat number with Foxy Fowler's hands full of cool maracas and tambourines that just won't let you stand still. "Things in the way" sounds like a mannish interpretation of the Sundays' classic "Here's where the story ends" adding some of it's own (rye) catchy spice, "Something sincere" is a pop jewel with the guitar line that makes it "slide" into your heart right from the start and whoever Lisa is, we should be thankful for inspiring the band to write the piece of guitar pop brilliance called "Forever (for Lisa)". The album highlight, "Opportunity knocks", is what you get at the very beginning, and it comes in the shape of the perfect blend of mid'60s melody and a contemporary sound. Considering the facts that this is a self-released, self-produced album by the self-managed band, this is an underground classic, which deserves to be skyhigh over the ground.

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!
