About the Guitar:
Production ended for Swedish-made Hagströms in 1983 as the company were outpriced by other major guitar brands that had moved their stock production lines to Asia. Hagström did make some Japanese prototypes; however, they were not pleased with the workmanship and would rather close down the company than cheapen the brand.
This is one of the rare Japan prototypes built. A small run of those bass guitars exists. Dispite the fact that the company was not satisfied with the workmanship, this is a great bass guitar with one of the best sounds ever heard.
