Hagstrom HIII

Hi, I just bought an old HIII it seems pretty original exept from the middle pick up that has been swapped for a Duncan humbucker, does anybody know how the tremar system works? and can anybody help me with dating the guitar ? the serial no is 677934, thanks Mats

Re: Hagstrom HIII

made in 1966 in a batch of 999 guitars. What do you want to know about the tremar? Maybe post a pictures if it does not seem to work.

Re: Hagstrom HIII

Thanks for the quick reply,
regarding the tremar system, it seems that all parts are in place, with the strings taken off, the stringholder moves when I move the tremararm sideways along the body. but with the strings in place nothing moves. are you supposed to move it sideways or up and down? or is it somekind of electrical thing? /Mats

Re: Hagstrom HIII

Hi, that is the way it is. And you are luck if both the tremar arm and the thumb screw are there. Does parts often disappear through time.
I normally can not move the tremar up and down. Under the screw that holds the spring, there should be a small ring with 2 teeth that holds the screw i place.

Re: Hagstrom HIII

Hi, I got the tremar to work, Seems like the spring was compressed to hard, beautiful 60,s sound coming out of it now,
