    Stumbled upon my “white whale” while scrolling through the ATL Craigslist. An early 60’s Hagstrom Coronado IV in cherry burst. It’s been played, but it sounds so sweet. So warm and articulate! I seriously looked for one of these for 8 years, and saw this one listed on the local CL for $400. I felt like that was a pretty good price! Just wanted to share it, and see if anyone had any more information on it. The serial number is 566075

    The pickups are Hagstrom Bisonics and easily worth $400 in their own right. I would leave the bass intact though. An excellent find!

    566075 would have make it as having been made in 1963. It was the 75th Coronado IV bass made in that production run (566) which produced 194 of them.

    The volume slider on these is a different approach, the factory only ever used it on the 1st gen of Coronado basses. It's also one of only three models that Hagstrom made with a 34" scale (Scanbass, Super Swede, Coronado IV were the others).

    Great find especially at $400.00 Enjoy.
