Early 1960's Sophomore Futurama Guitar owned by Overend Watts, Mott the Hoople

BANGOR, LL57, UNITED KINGDOM

£77

Hi folks, Firstly thank you for looking. I went to an auction recently as I really fancied one of the the late Overend Watts guitars that were up for sale as I'm a bit of a fan after my father had dragged me along to one of their last tours a few years ago. However, I won three of the guitars with pre-bids having only expected to win one. So I am selling 2 of the guitars and keeping my favourite. The other one is listed already, a Fenix by young Chang on my other items. I do see myself as a bit ... more

Hagstrom Futurama III Vintage 60s guitar 1965

This is a vintage 60s instrument and has a few knocks to show this, although it is in generally really good condition otherwise. 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

BALDOCK, SG7, UNITED KINGDOM

£295

Due to further downsizing here we have my Hagstrom Futurama 1960's short scale bass that has been finished in a "Steam Punk" style (new scratch plate / tuners). The bass is fully functioning, with a low very playable action and is certainly now a unique piece. This is how I purchased the bass and I have gigged it on several occasions. A great studio and live sound. The scale length is just over 30" and the neck is the classic "Broom stick" design, really easy to play, currently fitted with black... more
