This is an advert for a Hagstrom Futurama III electric guitar. I believe that this was made in 1965, but it could potentially be 1964.

I have had this setup twice since acquiring it, however I would recommend the new owner have it setup also. It is in working condition, the electrics are all functioning and I have played it a number of times. The neck is ever so ... more
