Can Hagstroms be dated by the number alone?

No, Hagstroms can not be dated by the number alone. Hagstrom do publish a serial number book, but (if my memory serves) the money from the sales of the book goes to the Hagstrom workers pension scheme or something - so I think theyve asked for it not to be reproduced.... no idea where I read this - might be wrong in the details.......

How do you date a Hagstrom serial number?

What year is my Hagstrom H-45?

Your guitar is H-45 from the second half of 1964. Bjarton was the company that produced the Hagstrom acoustic line and that is the reason that there are no acoustic serial numbers in the Hagstrom book (Although I would incourage you to pick it up anyway). I recently purchased a 1965 H-45 on ebay and I am still awaiting its arrival.

Albin Hagström (1905–1952)...

The smaller brother of the Hagstrom Viking which perfectly lives up to its Norse origins.
