ABBA, Elvis, Zappa, Pernilla Andersson, Bowie, Mando Diao, Owe Thörnqvist…
Thousands of artists play electric guitars and it is impossible to put your finger on which of them is a typical Hagström user. From Billy Gibbons in ZZ Top to Björn Ulveaus in ABBA to Frank Zappa and his son Dweezil – they have all used the well built guitars from Älvdalen. From dance band and jazz to punk and hard rock. These beautiful guitars are still loved by many well-known artists today.
Always in harmony with the age
The special lacquer on Hagström guitars quickly gave rise to the name “The glitter guitars”. The celluloid and lacquering technique as well as the many buttons and controls came from accordion making and gave the guitars a unique appearance. The unerring sense of form from Älvdalen was appreciated by artists as well as photographers.
