Hagström HIIBN production year?

Hi everyone,

I'm looking forward to owning a vintage Hagström HIIBN, but i would like to be sure of the production year before buying.

The SN is 769176 the owner claims it's from the late 60's.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks,

Mattijs

Re: Hagström HIIBN production year?

It's from a batch made in 69-70
yours would be #176 of the 200 made

Re: Hagström HIIBN production year?

Batch 769 was built in 1969-70 and contained 200 instruments. A fair guess is that 769176 was built in 1970.
769 was the first batch with the New Headstock HIIB N and has also the mute mechanism which vanished with the next batch.
