Jon Casselman has brought us a variety
of superb pictures and information over time,
now brought together on one page...

Three fabulous condition Canadian entries from John Casselman's "Wall of Hags"
      1967 HIIB                                1967 Concord Deluxe

John wrote 30th Jan 2002:
Karl-Eric Hagstrom Jr. is checking the factory shipping details of the Coronado IV. We both suspect that it is a Futurama that was originally shipped to Selmer even though it has the Coronado IV decal on the headstock. It does have the Kings Neck label on the back of the headstock. It's also never had the Hagstrom nameplate mounted to the upper body horn, so it could be a transition bass.

1964 Coronado IV

To: webstrom Subject: Futurama mystery resolved Hello David - You have a picture of my 1964 Coronado IV posted on your site. When I sent that pic to you I was unsure whether it had left the factory as a Futurama destined for Selmer or if it left as a Coronado IV destined for somewhere else in the world. Karl-Eric got back to me awhile a go to let me know that in fact the bass did leave the factory as a Coronado IV. It was originally shipped to Frankfurt Germany in October of 64.

Attached is another one of my Hag basses (I own 9) this is a recent addition*.
This is a factory finished White Hagstrom II B from 1967. Cheers, Jon

Jon Casselman changes seasons with us... Let's move to the warm earthy colours of Autumn...
Just CLICK THE PIC then wait for this basement view to load... These are the candidates
that prompted this dedicated page along with Jon's previous contributions!

Jon also has an eye for the other special pieces... one I let slip through my fingers
due to taxes, duty, and carriage to the UK... Oh well... OH HELL!

Hi Jon, Another superb composition; I just wish we had more people who can make such a presentation.

David, Save the picture that I just sent you for the early fall.
It has a lot of those earthy colours in it. This will be the last group shot.
I've now sold all of my Hagstrom's. I still have a number of basses, just not Hags.
Take care, Jon

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!
