This Hagstrom Swede model Bass Guitar is just gorgeous. The finish is spotless except for a little wear on the bottom sides and one spot on the back. (See pictures.). You can see the graining through the warm redwood finish. The head says “Hagstrom” with an inlayed fleur de lis below it. On the back of neck are the words “MADE IN SWEDEN”. It has just come back from the shop where it checked over by a professional guitar repairman and all the electronics are working perfectly. The serial number puts the manufacture date as 197o’s. It comes in the original case which is very good condition except for the handle which is still usable but the finish of the handle is a little rough.
