1963 Hagström Futurama – Red – #545416


All in all, this guitar is in very good condition for a 60-year-old instrument. The vinyl on the back is almost perfect. It is smooth and uniform and snug under the top. I only found one small nick near the serial number plate which is very unusual for one of these instruments. The top is very good but shows some minor crazing and surface cracking. None of the cracks appear to be “through the top”. However, a small piece of the top is missing on the tip of the upper bout near the strap button which contributes to the reasonable price. The vinyl is secure at that location and the wood of the body was painted to disguise the flaw. The neck is excellent and it appears as if the frets may have been dressed as the instrument plays well with no fretting out or buzzing. The volume knob and strap buttons are original, and a new (old stock) bridge was added to complete the setup. All the controls work properly, and this cool guitar is ready for action. I have tried to show both its assets and liabilities in the photos, but more information or photos are available on request. It is priced without a case. Contact us for available case solutions.
