Description

In ’76, Hagstrom called for D’Aquisto’s help again, to make a few refinements, and get the line into production. Hagstrom reintroduced the original Jimmy, with a slightly more conventional pickguard and pearl block inlays. Bodies were laminated birch, with a two-piece birch neck flanking a mahogany strip. Tuners were Grover Imperials with the groovy stairstep button. The Jimmy was available in Cherry, Sunburst, Golden Sunburst, White, and Natural. These Hagstrom Jimmys are fine-playing guitars, delivering a range of tones from crisp trebles to a throaty, jazzy bass on the neck pickup. The pickups are not as hot as those on contemporary American guitars, but these were not intended for producing tons of volume and distortion. The workmanship is excellent. As you’d expect on a Hagstrom, the neck has a very thin profile. The 16″ body is very comfortable. You can’t compare it to an acoustic jazz box, but it was, after all, designed both for production and amplification, and the guitar delivers for either electric jazz or fusion. Between 1976 and ’79, a little more than 1,200 f-hole Jimmys were built. The f-hole Jimmy was joined by another D’Aquisto-designed model in ’77. Basically this Hagstrom Jimmy was identical except that instead of f-holes it sported an oval soundhole. These are actually much rarer birds than the guitar shown, since only a little more than 350 were produced by the time the model ended in 1979. This example is a lovely Oval Hole model finished in a striking Cherry Sunburst finish. Its bound fingerboard has some pretty block inlays. Its original floating pickup has been replaced w/a newer type humbucker for better electric capability. It came w/a better set of tuners made by Schaller w/a Hagstrom logo (instead of their cheap Chinese tuners) & sports a set of Grover Imperial Stairstep buttons. It’s in amazingly clean all original shape having almost no play time nor any wear. Its cool chrome tailpiece has a serial # dating to 1976-7. It is near mint overall & comes in a nice black hard case.
