1965 Hagström De Luxe – Red — #618945


This beautiful red Hagström De Luxe is in excellent condition and captures the two pickup Hagström models in transition from the all-plastic top H-I’s to the wooden bodies of the H-II’s.  The body style has the rounded horns of the earlier guitars but the beveled body of the later instruments.  John Haskin refinished the neck on this guitar, and probably would have addressed a couple of issues on the body if he had time.  There are some minor dings that I couldn’t even get a photo of, and a couple of spots where the over-enthusiastic sanding of a blemish reached the primer.  These spots are clearly shown in the photos and are the only issues with this very nice instrument.  It plays easily and exhibits that wonderful 60’s single coil tone that these guitars are noted for.  All the electronics work properly It comes with new strings and in a very nice hard case of unknown vintage.  There is a ‘matching’ bass also for sale that allows for a discount if the pair is purchased together.  I have tried to show both its assets and liabilities, but more information or photos are available on request.
