"Round 'em up"
You've heard the The Three Tenors sing...
The latest BJ12 arrived from Germany
I thought I'd have a go at my own
"PAGE ONE for a month" competition,
Questions and answers
1) How did I hold the guitars in position for these photo's?
Two very different questions, with two very different answers!
1) These guitars will stand quite solidly on their tail-ends without
2) - The original BJ12 I have
owned since 1974 (Left). It doesn't take a lot to
look after it!
A Hagstrom is for Life - not just for Christmas
Now if you really don't want
that gorgeous guitar, please don't leave it in the garage to rot, send it to the
clinic at Hagstrom UK,
Please make an appointment first though!
PS Click the picture on the left to see the strings in a bit more gory "Glory" (?)
Finally, I am pleased to say that the BJ12 has come through it's ordeal very well. I say with all honesty that each guitar has it's own sound, and this one is really lovely now. A wider sound than even my original BJ12. What do I mean?
BJ12 (no pick-guard, plain headstock) - Bright
crisp sound yet very loud, not overly bass sounding.
All have extremely low actions
and enjoy the famous 'H' expander stretcher neck adjustment.
Mid way through 2002 we were lucky enough to take delivery of a superb Classical Acoustic in the form of the Bjarton Isabella (Hagstrom HC4) Pictures can be found on the Acoustics page (link).
Beautifully warm tones improved more with age - around 30 years - lovely wood grain, with ornate marquetry and fretted infill to the sound hole. I very rarely sell anything, but the second sunburst was sold on in 2003 after a lot of discussion... well three of them was a bit over-the-top!

|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?|
