    Well you know me when I`m on a roll, last week I placed an Ad on CL for used Hagstrom parts
    I could use on futur projects, the first day a guy from St-Hyacinthe (65 miles South from my place)
    wrote me about an old box of guitar stuff plus a guitar case asking $200 for the lot. So saturday I hopped in the pick-up and took a drive and there it was, 2 dusted boxes of Hagstrom guitar parts 7 sets of light gage
    strings a guitar stand, 1 hard case and a full bag of screws.

    Believe it or not there was 1 and a half guitar in them boxes most of them came from the same guitar
    and the rest were spare parts I guess.

    This morning I finished building and cleaning and setting up this GREAT and RARE 1970 (first Year)
    Hagstrom L.P. with a strnge 1 bolt neck !!! Now as some here know L.P. was the name given to the Model SWEDE in 1970 the only thing missing is a thin neck pup ring to be perfect.

    BTW this is a real player and not a collection piece, it's an Authentic road worn guitar 1970 Hagstrom LP (SW).jpg 1970 Hagstrom L.P..jpg

    Here's pic for now, some more later.

    Wow. So, the guitar in the picture - all the parts were in the boxes? Had the seller disassembled them, or someone else?

  16. Great find Robb. It's all come together for a fine looking guitar :).

    When I see Hagstrom, I always think of the first time I'd heard of them. It was an ad in "Song Hits" magazine (Dec. 1967) endorsed by Frank Zappa.
    I still have that copy and snapped these pics. I wonder if any of the 12 string Hagstrom's in this ad are still around, or what they'd be worth?
