Super Swede - Hagström Guitars 50 Years

by Mikael Jansson

Hardback 194 pages with more than 400 colour photographs
ISBN 978 91 85697 15 1

The book

Hagström guitars hold a special place in musicians’ hearts. Many of the world’s greatest played Hagström instruments, including ABBA, Bowie, Hendrix, Presley and Zappa. Musicians of a younger generation have also discovered these quality Swedish instruments, for example The Cardigans and Sahara Hotnights.

This richly illustrated book - with more than 400 photos - displays not only the guitars and basses made in the Älvdalen main factory between 1958 and 1981, but also Hagström instruments sold under other brand names and instruments built in the Falun and Oslo factories, and by Bjärton. The close to 200,000 Hagström guitars made are a symbol of Swedish musical, cultural and industrial history and a fine example of Swedish design.

The author

Mikael Jansson is a journalist and musician. In 2006 he published, in Swedish, Music für Miljoner a book about the Hagström company history.
