Help with identifying vintage hagstrom guitar.

Hello Everybody,

I recently bought this beatiful Hagstrom.
Could someone help me with findign out what year it was built and maybe help me to find more info on the guitar?

The serial number is: 79 70 42

I uploaded some photos of it (sorry for the quality):

Some things i noticed:
The headstock does not have the floral but a "patch".
Also the neck ist attached with only one screw.
A friend told me it could be a protoype.. i don't know.

Unfortunately the knobs and the pickups are not original.

Thank you kindly for your help!

Hi there,
with that s/n you have a '71 LP
that's what the Swede was called until someone said 'That looks like a Swede' (I call it Les Paul's Swedish cousin) and changed the headstock logo.
Yours is #42 of 200 made in that batch.

One screw? My '80 Swede has two, maybe they were experimenting with a set neck and a screw...

Thank you Christo!

Hello. I just picked up the same stylized guitar and it looks so much like yours except someone put Di marzio pickups on mine. Same white covered switches and same gold vol & tone. Are your switches 3 position and 2 position like mine? Yours is older than mine as I have a two bolt neck but the patch is on my headstock too. Serial 811096.
