The story of Hagstrom starts 1921 in Älvdalen, Sweden when Albin Hagström (1905-52) imports two accordions from Germany. Three years later he buys 25 more accordions which all gets sold, partially with the help from advertising. In 1925 Albin founds the company Albin Hagström which remained as the company name to the end, but from 1936 with the addition AB (Inc.).
The increasing successes made the company ready to try their own manufacturing in 1932 .
Hagstrom noticed a growing demand for guitars. Therefore, the company started building guitars of which a great deal went on export, mainly to the USA. Rumors say only 10% stayed on the Swedish market. Hagstrom also imported guitars and basses from Fender and Gibson.
Hagstrom built totally 128,583 electric and semi-acoustic basses and guitars.
The company ceased production in 1983.
