Goya Guitars by Hagstrom
From january 1925 until the summer of 1958 the main business of the Hagstrom company was based on accordions. There was some acoustic guitars produced in Oslo, Norway and a couple of Hawaiian lap steel guitars built in Falun, Sweden in the late 1940's. After a journey to the US in 1958 Albin Hagström's oldest son Karl Erik Hagström came back to Sweden stating that the accordion era was coming towards an end and that the future was rock´n´roll and that Rock music demanded electric guitars insted of accordions! After some research, which included taking a Gibson Les Paul "Goldtop" apart (Hagstrom was the Scandinavian Gibson distributor at that time), the head designer Holger Berglund and his right hand man Arne Hårdén started to design the first Hagstrom electric guitar.
This Model 80 is a true piece of rock n roll history! The early Rock years of the 60's saw electric guitar innovation from all over the globe. Goya came from a small company in Sweden as a response to the mainstream distorted blues music being heard in the UK & United States. This Goya plays and sounds like a vintage guitar! A comfortable neck, vintage raw sounding pickups, and lightweight body make this guitar the ideal instrument on and off the stage! The pearloid fretboard & gold sparkle finish make this dream of a guitar even more appealing to anyone looking for a stage guitar!
