1967 Hagstrom Concord bass

hollow bodied electric bass

Hagstrom Concord main page | Hagstrom Concord shipping data | 1967 Hagstrom Concord | Concord sound clips

The Hagstrom Concord is a really fun bass to play, with some great woody tones - I gig this bass regularly. With a shorter scale of 31" it allows for some nice fast playing. But being hollow, it will feedback on occasions, though never too much of a problem. In songs that actually need feedback you can control it; and get the amount you want.

Definitely one of the better vintage semi-acoustic bass guitars. Try a Hagstrom Concord if you can! Here are some soundclips of this bass through a few of my favourite vintage bass amps:
