Hagstrom "world's fastest playing neck" guitar 1966 guitar catalog, page 3. Three six string solid body guitars are shown: the dual pickup F-11, and F-200 and the triple pickup F-300. These model names are those employed by US-distributor Merson. Outside America, the guitars were named H-1, H-11 and H-111 respectively.

At the time of production of this catalog, Hagstrom were in the process of upgrading some of the hardware fitted to their guitars. The metal surround to the controls and even the pickups themselves were about to be replaced. None of the guitars pictured on this page have this in evidence, though the F-200 gracing the front cover is fitted with the newer rectangular pickups, and has control markings etched into the scratchplate.

These solid body guitars were available in Black, Red, White and Blue, with the F-200 and F-300 also available in Sunburst. 1966 US prices for these guitar models were as follows: F-11, $159.50; F-200, $195; F-300, $215.
