Haskins Hagstroms Testimonials

A man who wants to be sure you get what you need!!

I had come across John’s website in search of answers to an odd HII I own that baffled me. With John’s knowledge and help I was able to find the parts I needed to make convert it back into a 12 string I’d been so eagerly hoping bring back to life.

He’s not just someone looking to sell his items but a man who wants to be sure you get what you need and be make sure you’re making the right decisions. It was nice to find someone who is honest, trustworthy and cares about these old guitars as much as I do.

I look forward to purchasing more parts and hopefully a few guitars in the future. Thanks John!

The guitar is amazing!

I bought a Hagström Viking 1N from John and I have only good things to say. The guitar was described as ”near mint”, but I would still be happy if he described it as ”mint”. No reason to be hestitant about the condition of the guitars sold by him. It was also the most well packed guitar I’ve ever seen. Not a scratch could have been made during shipping. John knows his stuff and was easy to make business with!

And of course, the guitar is amazing!

Wonderful to deal with and more than prompt

John-thank for the detailed reply. The technical meter stuff is way beyond my capabilities and I do not want to take the guitar apart-I will live with it for now and eventually get it set up with new strings and have the techs take a look at it-I did find a g string (nickel wrapped-actually a whole set for 10.00 but only used the g-it sits pretty good with the rest for now.  On the refund I think you sold me this guitar at a great or even undervalued price so I do not need any compensation , but thanks for the offer. You as a person or company have been wonderful to deal with and more than prompt on the turn-around and communication-I do love this bass as I did my original 67 Hagstrom 1 bass-feel free to use any part of this letter as an endorsement or use me as a reference -thanks again and Happy New Year

Very Pleased!

I am, “as usual” (my third purchase), very pleased with the purchase of the red 1967 H II. John / Haskins are very friendly and nice, easy to deal with and deliver 100%. Fast delivery of the beauty which was very well packaged and a very good conversation, moreover, before the purchase.

Great Service

John Loveless was very easy to work with. He answered all my questions and provided extra pictures. When the guitars arrived they were exactly as described and well packed for shipping. I look forward to more transactions with John. Thank you very much for great service.  Tom Partridge

excellent gear and the conversation (mail) with John was 100% good and relevant.

I have to tell you all this:
I got the red beauty 1964 Futurama (HIII), with the original Hagstrom tiger stripe case, a while ago, from Haskins.
I´m so pleased with the super excellent gear and the conversation (mail) with John was 100% good and relevant.

The bass was very well packed and in a very good condition

I bought a bass and was a little concerned over how I could get it to Sweden. But everything was perfect, even though I had to pay the toll. The bass was very well packed and in very good condition.

 

I couldn’t be happier!

Received my Hagstrom Bass yesterday and she is a beauty. Well packed, clean, new strings. Works perfectly. I couldn’t be happier!

The process from start to finish was great

I was so happy to receive my bass from John and Haskins Hagstroms. The process from start to finish was great. John sent me tons of pictures from every angle and made sure my questions were answered. The price was very fair and far less than music stores that are selling similar vintage Hagstroms online. John truly knows what the market is and how these guitars should be priced.

The bass was packaged very securely; the strings were loosened, there was ample paper and bubble wrap around the case and the box was sturdy and taped well. It even came with a nice set of flatwound strings installed. The bass was more beautiful in person than in the photos and I love the way it sounds. And it matches my old Hagstrom guitar!  I am tempted to buy another and if I did, I would come to Haskins first.

Great and informed service

Haskins Hagstoms provided me with (otherwise impossible to find) original parts for my 1964 Hagstrom Futurama Coronado Bass VI. John was kind enough to keep an email request from me and contacted me when the right parts were located. Price, packing, and delivery to the UK was all perfect. John was very helpful and knowledgeable. I am sure there will be many more Hagström owners that can benefit from such great and informed service.

A truly nice guy

I was very sorry to learn of the passing of John in 2019. I just found this sad news. My name is Mike Stock. John H. and I corresponded many times over the years and he truly was a font of incredible knowledge where all things Hagstrom was concerned! he always comported himself with class and kindness in our exchanges and helped me out many times with parts and advice. I was honored to have one of my basses featured on his website. I still have a Hagstrom logo pick which he sent me as a gift! A truly nice guy and his dedication and love for the marque remains an inspiration to all of us Hag Heads. Best Regards, Mike Stock
