Kurt Cobain's Revered Hagstrom Guitar Goes On Auction
The Hagstrom has been authenticated by Kurt's former guitar tech Earnie Bailey, who was able to quickly identify the guitar thanks to its unique left hand orientation which he personally converted before delivering it to Kurt in Seattle circa 1992. George Gruhn, a celebrated vintage guitar expert, was able to successfully identify the guitar as a 1958-1960 Hagstrom Deluxe Model 90.
A company who have been manufacturing guitars for the best part of 38 years, Hagstrom produced some of the first electric guitars to ever be produced outside of the US. Melding all the nostalgia and authenticity of a bygone era into modern and contemporary designs, Hagstrom offer an eclectic range of guitars that reflect the brands unwavering commitment to diversity within the musical domain. To this day Hagstrom continue to buck convention , maintaining a legacy of guitars that exhibit exciting new designs and premium tone.
The auction is expected to run for 10 days, ending on February the 26th. The proceeds from the auction will go to Transition Projects, a Portland- Based nonprofit organisation that provides aid to over 10,000 people who are transitioning from being homeless to living in housing.
