Tomas Berg from Mölnbo Sweden sent this
gorgeous Deluxe Bass from 1961.
Hi David Thanks for the information about my
bass. Yes I still play the bass. Unfortunally it seems that the bass is not
strictly original. The bridge is probably changed in the early 60´s.The bridge
on the bass now is the same as Hagström used on their "Batman" model.The work
seems to be professional, it´s not anyone who´s been sitting at home with a
drill and a screwdriver. I bought the bass in 1978 from a friend for 100 Swedish
crowns. That should be about £6.50. I know the history of the bass back to 1965.
It was sold at " falu instrumentverkstad" in Falun Sweden. Not very far away
from Älvdalen.The instrument is in good condition and in perfect tune all along
the neck. That´s probably because of the better bridge. When I started to play
in rocknrollbands in the late 70´s Hagström wasn´t the bass to have. It simply
wasn´t cool enough.´The only cool bass was the Fender. I once was sacked from a
band because the others thought my bass was ridicolous:-) Regards Tomas

Subject: Goya/Hagstrom Bass:
I have a Goya Bass that is the Red Sparkle Pearloid construction identical to the Goya six-string on your site. Some sources tell me they have seen the guitars but no bass, can you send any light on this instrument?
I have owned it for over 30 years now. I have seen one picture of a Hagstrom bass of similar construction. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks. Gary Engelmann.
THIS IS THE FINEST CONDITION EXAMPLE I HAVE SEEN TO DATE

|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
