Swedish Beauties…

Check out these little Hagstrom Swedish beauties! Wood bodies covered in vinyl & plastic and oh so retro. What’s not to love? We have a circa ’63 Model II with a blue painted, all wood body and beveled edges, a circa ’62 Model I in red (one of the early PB-24 models with the Hagstrom badge on the body) and last but not least we have a circa ’65 Model I in black.

Suburban Renewal

Suburban Renewal

We recently added a bunch of stuff to Suburban Renewal (our fave antique store) in Hastings on Hudson, NY.

Take a peek at the window display featuring a selection of our gear including guitars, amps, pedals and a stylish vintage Italian Accordian.  This is a great shop with a huge selection of all sorts of things. We always find it hard to walk out of this place without buying something! They have the occasional stuffed monkey too… free them now!
