Coronado IV (Futurama)

(June 2006)

 John Miners, North Essex England

...then it joined the Family here at Hagström UK

Well I happened to see this same example on eBay in January 2007... just in time... auction about to end... jumped in there, and yes, John made a very good investment back in 1971 !

We'll keep you posted when it arrives!

Notice the high grade Bi-Sonic pickups?

Well here's a favourite from the Hagstrom Bass Camp - Coronado IV:

Hello, I posted a question concerning my Hagstrom Coronado IV Bass guitar a few days ago and Manfred told me I should send some pictures to you... ... Well here are a few, hope you like them and maybe can use em? If you want more, let me know!

Greetings, Peter Kroes


A firm favourite with the Bass players amongst us, these are great players, and such an unmistakable looking bass Well I'm glad you found what you needed on the FORUM, and of course thanks to Manfred who:

a: Answered your question
b: Prompted these pictures!

What a super colouring too, but like me with the Concord Deluxe, remember this should be wound the other way on the machines, with "E" outside the string tree retainer.

Just look at that engineering -

Thanks Peter (- and Manfred!)

Hiya! I love your site - lots of valuable info, great pics and interesting stories.

One of the very first "real" basses I ever saw in person (at a friend's house - it was his older brother's) was a PB-24-G back in 1966. I was 11 (you can do the math). well, I finally fulfilled my original "bass lust" (Click Here)

Fast forward some weeks - this next one shows up on ebay. A Coronado VI with Bi-Sonics!!! It does have a headstock repair (it wasn't a clean break) that was done a long time ago and looks like hell, but it is structurally sound. Otherwise all original and working perfectly. No neck issues with action as low as could be, every note sounding true. I haven't seen one of these in a long time and was very surprised that I wasn't outbid. The only thing I did after getting it was I rotated the bridge pickup 180 degrees for a bit more output - it now has a more noticeable edge when the pickups are used together. It sounds absolutely great!!!! I am gigging it regularly and really enjoy playing it.

Keep up the good work! These are wonderful instruments!!!

Best Regards, Will, New York City

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!
