The First Jimmy Oval Hole Archtop – 1977


#53-987001 was the first guitar Hagstrom crafted in the first of the three runs of oval hole “Jimmys”.  These instruments are the same materials and dimensions as the better known ‘F’ hole “D’Aquistos” except there is one floating pickup and the controls are mounted on the pickguard to allow the top to resonate freely.  As #1 out of the 251 Oval hole Jimmy’s made this is truly a collector’s instrument.  It is in excellent condition and has an original hard-shell case.  To make this available, I am using John’s existing photos, if you are seriously interested in this instrument, I will take new pictures to send to you.  I know John would be pleased to sell them as a pair: Make us an offer!
