A Labour of Love!
From: Chris deGruyter  Monday, October 20, 2003 -

Hey, I own a '77 Fretless Jazzbass, which I got from a friend for free! When I met with it, it was in poor shape, with no chrome canopies, a big shiny dog sticker on the pickguard, and was sorely in need of moisture on the solid ebony fingerboard. The finish was destroyed and the headstock decal was half missing. A total mess. I spent 6 months and $700 US on repairs and parts; 12 hours a day micro-meshing the pickguard to remove all the scratches, and tracking down the canopies and decals from Sweden. Now, it looks like this:

It looks 100% better, and plays like a champ. It is undoubtedly my finest piece. The serial number is: 53 988037.

Such admirable dedication of a very fine and very well respected model.

....and another Fretless Scanbass - Originally a partner for a Futurama / Coronado VI
owned by Wes Hunter from Sounds Incorporated.
This was one I passed on, after playing - no nothing wrong - I just couldn't afford both!

Martin, the second owner is 21 years old, works as a sound-technician and producer in Gothenburg, Sweden. Mostly into pop music. He of course plays guitar, but has been playing bass since he was 13. "As everyone else I spend my time looking for interesting Hagstroms in my spare time".

Interesting indeed - just glad I got to play it back end of last year before it went 'home again'
This guitar was purchased new when "Wes" by then a guitar string supplier, went to the Hagstrom factory,
saw this guitar in the reception area, bought it before he left again that early 70's day!

(See the CoronadoVI page for more on this)

Believe me - not all Scanbass / Jazzbass models were fretless!

it all depends on the person who wants to sell and the person who wants to buy.
I am no dealer, and therefore can not provide a firm expectation considering the above.
Be patient if you're looking for the right Hagstrom!

There is no price list any more!

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!
