A superb example of this highly prized Swedish made guitar, in excellent condition. It's nearly 40 years old so a few marks are only to be expected.  

It has some very small scuffs around the edges, some tiny dings to the front and back and a lacquer crack in the cutaway. It also appears that the bridge volume knob has been glued back together at some point in its past although this is hard to see and I've only mentioned it for the sake of full disclosure, otherwise, the guitar is beautifully looked after and plays as well as any guitar out there.

Worth pointing out, the guitar, as with all original Hagstrom Super Swedes is a heavyweight, tipping the scales at 4.69kg (10lb 3oz) so not for anyone looking for a lightweight. To help out with the weight, the guitar is supplied with a wide leather strap fitted with strap locks. This is the only modification to an otherwise completely original guitar, however, for the sake of true originality, the original strap button is included.

The guitar plays great and has incredible sustain. The zero fret and super jumbo frets make this a quick action, set low with no buzzing. It's a players dream for sure.

I'm certain there's a completely immaculate version out there somewhere, but for a used/played instrument, they don't get much better than this. Estimates were that only 1400 of these superb guitars were ever made. It's a collectors piece for sure and due to the serious love for these guitars, will only appreciate in value from here on in
