I was lookin around on eBay and stumbled upon a few Hagstrom basses in my price range. I was just wondering if they are good or not, especially the ones from the 60's and 70's. I'm also curious what they sound like.
well, I just went to the Hagstrom website and they had a sound clip playing of one of their basses and I was pretty impressed. what prices did you find?
between 400 and 600 USD for a couple from the 60's and 70's.
I once played a vintage '73 Hagstrom 8-string unplugged, and it seemed to be nice. I think it was short scale and had a 3-bolt neckplate, but it seemed to be cool. That said, I think with many basses of that era, you're paying for it's age, not it's quality.
