Hagstrom bass guitar dating
They have gone to great lengths to re-create the modern Hagstrom range using original designs and production techniques.
Then, a couple of Italian masterpieces: The Cobra is one of a dozen or so NOS guitars that I picked up when the Milwaukee connection flushed their last holdings. Below: Far left is a guitar I lust after, but have never owned. Eastwood makes an excellent Phase IV replica that is far better than the original. Next to that is a “Montclair” Burns copy, just like the Hi-Lo pictured earlier. Lastly is a token Airline Bass with a white Gumby headstock. (You can find a nice May Queen re-issue on the 1990 page and another recent Eastwood Custom Shop model here). The timeless Teisco ET460 Del Ray and a simple Sekova Bison.
