Hagstrom Corvette / Condor was made in Sweden in the mid 1960's.
The guitar plays great and sounds fantastic. It has been modified with a bigsby tremolo. Under the bigsby there are 6 tiny holes that go all the way through - someone must have experimented with string through at some point. Aside from that the guitar is all original and there is no structural damage .
Into. all buttons seem to work a little finiky just a cleaning im sure
there are 2 buttons called acc and solo they dont seem to do anything this guitar plays great and sounds great
HAGSTROM GUITARS in the 1960’s: The CONDOR aka The CORVETTE.
Eager to join the pop music explosion of the 1960’s, which was heavily dependent on guitars that had “style”, were “cool”, and were “feature loaded” (like the competing, and now iconic, styles of the Gibson Firebird, the Fender Jaguar, and Mosrites Ventures), Hagstrom’s incredibly talented design staff came up with the “pop design styles” of the CORVETTE and the IMPALA.
These were totally unique and stylish design styles original to HAGSTROM. They featured flowing body shapes, lots of buttons, and chrome. They were, and remain, some of Hagstrom’s coolest guitars. The two-pickup Impala and three-pickup Corvette, both named for popular Chevrolets in the USA but the Corvette Model name was changed to “Condor” after objections from Gretsch Guitar Company who was already manufacturing a “Corvette” model guitar. These were fairly sophisticated guitars, with wider maple bodies, an arm contour, more flared horns and a little peak down on the lower bout, giving the butt a little S-curve. More importantly, these were neck-through-body guitars with natty colored pushbutton controls mounted on a metal plate on the lower bout. The heads had a slightly more pointed throat than the Strat-styles. These had deluxe covered Van Ghent tuners. Plastic logos were on the body. Fingerboards were Brazilian Rosewood with dot inlays. Pickups were the black oval single-coils on metal surrounds screwed into the top, although at some point after ’65 these changed to the newer rectangular black single-coils. A little black laminated pickguard sat under the strings, but had the cool feature of a lever volume control plus a volume knob for presetting an accompaniment level.
The Corvette/Condor six string electric guitar was produced at the Hagstrom plant in Alvdalen, Sweden between 1963 and 1967. It was a well-built guitar, with set neck, and interesting body styling and controls - the eight-switch push-button tone controls give "18 tonal effects" as described in the 1966 Hagstrom Catalogue, whilst the sliding volume control allows for "fast adjustments". Visually stunning in Red Sunburst and Mahogany Sunburst polyester finishes, they certainly do capture the essence of mid 1960s guitar design.
