In May 2006 Horst Weichert sent us pictures of his 1961 Bass. Recorded as being the very first basses made you'd think it was (therefore) the 25th Bass Hagström ever made. However, there were basses in the Goya order too, which were not recorded in the batch records...

 

Not in perfect condition, but still fully functioning and being played by Horst, this is a great example of these earliest - and iconic - pieces of Hagström guitar and bass history...

Tomas Berg from Mölnbo Sweden sent this gorgeous Deluxe Bass from 1961.
It looks in super condition, and see how it sparkles in the sunlight!

This was the very first year Hagström made basses.
The first batch was 150 in qty. The second batch was 188.
This was the 21st one from that second batch.
Thank you Tomas!

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   (27th May 2002)          
ED: Now how much was that one on e-bay recently????

Gary Engelmann brings us one of the first basses made by Hagstrom (for Goya)

PLEASE CLICK THE PICTURE - IT'S REALLY WORTH THE VISIT

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
AS WELL AS ONE OF THE EARLIEST EVER MADE!

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!
