    1968 Hagstrom Concord Deluxe from the very last production run of Concord Deluxe basses run 733 and finished in beautiful tobaccoburst. If you're looking for a really nice semi-acoustic bass, this is the one you'll want.

    Recently setup with new set of D'Addario Chrome flatwound string for that great vintage smooth 60's tone.

    The Deluxe features:

    - All gold hardware, including pickups, tailpiece, tuner machines, bridge and strap posts, Vol/Tone inserts, neck/body plate, string headstock guide.
    - Fully bound headstock, neck and F-holes
    - Large MOP neck inlays
    - Raised plastic gold Hagstrom logo on the headstock
    - 2nd generation Hagstrom Concord bridge

    Other than some minor lacquer checking the bass is in fabulous condition. Photos speak for themselves.

    Case is one year old and never been out of the house since purchased. It's a deluxe hardshell case that fits the bass perfectly.

    I'm not really interested in any trades.

    Feel free to ask any questions that you may have. Thx for looking.

    PS - Since posting this thread one of the tuners started to develop a slipping problem in its gears so I was able to reach out to my friend Karl-Eric Hagstrom Jr and he has provided me with a set of 1968 new old stock gold plated Van Gent tuners for the bass that he had in his left over parts bin. They have now been installed on the bass. The photos above show the new tuners.

    Am I correct that this is a short scale bass (30")?
