Sold! Hagstrom Super Swede Sunburst, 1983

Sold!  Hagstrom Super Swede Sunburst, 1983

The Hagstrom Super Swede, built from 1979 until Hagstrom closed in 1983, was the last of the top quality guitars from the venerable Swedish builder. The original Swede used a bolt-on neck, and one of the Super Swede’s upgrades is a set neck.   This Super Swede dates to 1983 at the Hagstrom Alvaden plant, and features a dark red sunburst.  It is in overall very good condition, and is complete and original except for the case – a Japanese hard shell case is included. The body and neck are solid maple, and the bound fingerboard is Indian Rosewood.

Here we’re looking at a lovely Gibson LG-1 Ladder built during 1953. Many of these guitars do not have serial numbers as such, rather they have a FON or Factory Order Number. On this guitar, the FON is Y6452 30, and the relevant character is the Y. This FON series started in 1952 with the letter Z, and counted back towards A, each year.

Reduced❗️ Fender Jazz Bass 1975 Reissue Natural, 2001

Reduced❗️  Fender Jazz Bass 1975 Reissue Natural, 2001

The Fender Jazz Bass used the same proven Fender construction, with an Alder or Ash body and bolt on Maple neck. At 1960, Fender was learning how to add Rosewood fingerboards to their necks, and this was partly to win Gibson players over. The Jazz Bass had the new ‘offset’ body style, and a pair of single coil pickups. The earliest models used two concentric pots, each controlling volume and tone for one pickup. This soon gave way to the modern layout, of two volumes and one master tone control.

The Gibson ES-339 Thinline Archtop has everything the classic and very successful ES-335 offers, but with a comfortable, slightly scaled down body. Originating during 2007 from the Gibson Memphis Custom Shop, the ES-339 found immediate acceptance. The Gibson Memphis plant has now closed due to restructuring, so any future models will likely come from Nashville.
