For sale here is one classy lady! A Hagstrom HL-550 Jazz Box.
This guitar and I have a history. My best friend and roommate in college bought it back when we were starting college and it use to hang around our college bachelor pad. I have a lot of great memories with this guitar, and I will hate to see it go, but my buddy doesn’t play it anymore, so he is having me sell it on consignment. Since this sale is a consignment, this guitar will be sold “as described” and omitted from my returns policy per my shop policies.
To address the elephant in the room: When he bought it, the headstock was broken off, and we, being about 18 and inexperienced, glued it back together. It held for a solid decade, but it was not the best fix. It had a bit of a ridge, etc. So, as part of the consignment, I actually re-broke the headstock recently and redid the fix now having a good several years of experience in guitar repair under my belt.
The result is a MUCH better fix and should be as solid as the day the guitar was bought new, but the finish on the neck had to be sanded back to get the fix right. So, it is fairly obvious it has been repaired. The damage is not only cosmetic though, the guitar is completely structurally sound. If you wanted to get the finish touched up, this guitar would be good as new.
Other than that headstock fix, this guitar is in great playing shape. The action is super low and the pickup sounds GREAT! Because of the headstock fix, I am selling this guitar a good $250-$300 less than all other options on Reverb! You won’t find a better deal on this guitar!
As always, I cleaned it up, polished the finish, oiled the board, flushed the electronics, changed the strings and set the action as low as I could. This guitar comes with a basic gig bag and I pack my guitars tight and insure every package.
Don’t miss this great deal on a super classy guitar!
