As far as I know Hagstrom only started making guitars in the late 50's or early 60's, previous to that they just made accordions. If you get ahold of one of the guys in Sweden, google for their site, they might give you the actual year yours was made, without buying their book for $20, as its encoded in the serial number, more likely your is late 60's to 70's, when they started making the H3's.

Hagstrom Viking 2

To whom it may concern; I am looking to purchase a late sixties Hagstrom V-2 cherry red with gold hardware and inline tuning pegs(fender style headstock).It is also refered to as the Elvis guitar. I have found many in various colours but none in cherry. I am only interested in the cherry. If you know of one for sale on this continent please e-mail me. Thanks, Jason Bailey

Thanks, Jason Bailey ~~~ In response to this message, I have a cherry red Viking and a sunburst which are very similar to the guitar Elvis used in Jailhouse Rock in the '68 tv special. Mine both have Bigsby tailpieces but do not have binding around the headstock, etc. The hardware is chrome. Both have original cases. I have no particular desire to sell them, especially the red one(it plays better although it has more wear). I would consider any offers. Also, I am not sure which continent you are on. I am in central Missouri, USA. You can email me at the address given above.

1959 Goya

I have a Model 80, I believe. The serial is #466-111. This guitar is in playable shape and looks very nice, but has a contour @ the bridge. It's hard to believe that it is still so easy to fret?? Any information on the body top (contour)would be appreciated.
Also, I have looked for information on this and can't find much on four pick-up models??

Mike
