Here for sale is a vintage Hagstrom H11N in Cherry Red Finish from the 1960’s. This model was played by Pat Smear in the Germs, Nirvana and Foo Fighters. It has been upgraded to Pat Smear’s specifications with a Seymour Duncan ’59 in the neck position and a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge position. Although Pat’s had plain black covers we went with the chrome plated versions so as to keep the styling of the original pick ups. The original pick ups did not sound too great and were very quiet and we no longer have them. These Seymour Duncan’s sound absolutely scorching and you can see why Pat Smear opted to have these pick ups installed in his Hagstrom H11N when he joined Nirvana. Incidentally, it was the same pick ups that Kurt Cobain had installed in his dual humbucker guitars. The guitar also comes with a hard case, and is in overall good condition for its age. It has various dings, scratches and dents as you would expect from a highly playable and great sounding vintage guitar. The most notable being a couple of small dings above the pick guard towards the bottom. There is also some light scratching on the bottom side of the guitar and some hairline finish cracks from the neck joint and some finish cracks in the lacquer on the neck. None of which are serious and are just superficial. The guitar still has the made in Sweden sticker at the bottom of the neck. The guitar has also had a professional refret and plays and sounds all the better for it. A real power house of a guitar, somewhere between a Fender Stratocaster and a Gibson SG. Pat Smear played this model the most in Nirvana, and can be seen with it in pretty much every live electric performance with the band. The most notable being the December 1993 Live and Loud Performace at Pier 48 in Seattle.

Please note all guitars are sold as seen. We try our best to show the guitar’s condition in the photos but this is not always possible to every detail. Each guitar is set up to the shop standard playing style and as we all know; each player is different. If it is not set up to your liking this is not a cause for complaint, as is finding some kind of imperfection that we may or may not have mentioned. We sell used guitars not museum pieces and we do not accept returns unless they have been damaged in transit. If you are looking for a perfect guitar that you will worry about damaging and hang on the wall we advise you to buy new! So be rock n roll! lml
