My guitar in a hard shell gibson case!
Was wondering what year my Hagstrom Swede is # 53 910451
Kevin, your Swede was made in 1974 in production run number 910 which produced 500 of them. Yours was the 451st made in that run.
I searched the web for some info on a F12 which I got from a friend about 20 years ago, I came across this site/thread. I wonder if you could provide some information on my guitar. The serial number is 706142
Production run 706 took place in 1967 producing 1000 Hagstrom-12 guitars. Yours was the 142nd guitar made in that run. Looks great!
Looking to buy a Hagstrom, serial 770003... Any chance you have any details on that?
Sadly, seems over the years it's been half gutted and binding on the neck gone. May see if can do a restore, but not with vintage parts since impossible to find. Thanks.
Thank you so much
Sorry to hear that the old girl is in rough shape but I can tell you that your Hagstrom is a Swede (L.P.) that was made in 1970 in production run 770. It was the 3rd guitar made in that run which produced 50 of them. This run 770 was the first production run of the Swede which they also called the L.P. for Les Paul. The name was officially changed to Swede in 1971.
Thanks for the info... looking at it later today. It'll be a few months before I work on it, still getting my workshop put together... gotta debate what to fix and what to replace.
Hi there. I was wondering if you had any information on a Hagstrom III with serial number 676009? This was my dad's first electric guitar and I would love to be able to give him some more information. Thank you!
Hello, Thornton! Guessing it’s a reissue, but wanted to give it a shot. My Swede’s serial no is MO5080127, bought in 2007 /2008.
Your Hagstrom-III was manufactured in production run 676 which produced 1000 of them. Yours was the 9th Hagstrom-III made in that run.
Pass the news along to your dad.
Andreas you are correct, your Swede is a Chinese reissue. Looking at the serial number it was probably made in 2005.
Hi there and thank you so much on doing all this work for everyone! Do you happen to know what year mine was made in?
