Hagstrom Jimmy D'Aquisto 1970's


Considered one of his best guitars, the Hagstrom Jimmy was designed by Jimmy D'Aquisto, the renowned successor to John D'Angelico.
In 1969, Karl Erik Hagstrom was able to bring James D'Aquisto to Sweden to design and develop guitars. Working at the Hagstrom Bjarton factory in Bjärnum, the Jimmy was fitted out and ten guitars were built. Subsequently, around 480 examples were produced, of more or less conventional design, using a 16-inch-wide hollow body with a pair of F-holes and two sensors. Production ended when the Bjarton factory closed.
Starting in 1975, 1,083 Jimmy guitars were built, 727 of the original design and 356 of the new one.
