|Comments||Here’s a 1965 Hagstrom III — marketed in the US as the F-300 Futura. These instruments were known for their thin yet wide necks – very “fast”.
Hagstrom originally marketed German accordions, and in 1958 started building electric guitars.
The Hagstrom III was built from 1964 to 1976. However, by 1984, they could not compete with Asian imports and ceased production of guitars and went back to accordions.
This example is in good condition and good playing shape, and is fun to play!
