    Yea, that looks like 60s MIJ, but wasn’t Hagstrom a Swedish company? Back in the day I had a black ‘66 Hagstrom I, with the vinyl covered body. Paid $7.50 at a garage sale, with the original case. Talked the guy down from $10. Other than the rather primitive bridge, I kind of liked it.

    I took it out of the box to play it for a couple of minutes and take pictures and put it right back in. Keep forgetting I have it LOL.
