I'm parting with some gear in order to make way for new equipment that suits my current needs. Please check my other ads if you are interested. Some trades might be considered.

With that said, this is my Hagstrom Jimmy. Made in Sweden during 1970 by Bjärnum (Bjärton) for release in the U.S.A under the Hagstrom brand, these guitars are rarely seen nowadays and are really well made instruments. I've left a link at the bottom of the page for those interested in reading more about Hagstrom's roots, and how Bjärton is tied to their early years of acoustic development.

The Jimmy boasts some great specs, including a solid spruce top with 4-ply binding, mahogany sides and back with single-ply binding, a great playing mahogany neck with medium rounded profile, a 21-fret unbound rosewood fingerboard with no positional inlays, tortoiseshell pickguard and decorative soundhole rosette, rosewood bridge, and the original open gear tuning machines.

Excellent shape, especially considering its now pushing 50 years. The neck action is fairly typical of a guitar it's age, alike many from this era it could certainly benefit from some work on the neck. That being said it's definitely playable as it is. I've been using it for slide, or fingerstyle with a capo - and it is superb sounding. I've made some more photos available here (https://ibb.co/album/v44z7R).

Try before you buy is not only welcomed, but encouraged! Thanks for looking.
