    That is what it looks like to me. Back in 69 when I started playing, the Hagstrom H8 along with the Framus and of course the P-bass were the hot basses us kids talked about owning some day.

    the true original guitarist was Larry Wallis
    I think he's playing a guitar in that shot

    He did own more than a couple:

    If it’s a guitar, it’s of the 8 string variety.

  14. Hendrix's Hagstrom appears to be red rather than sunburst, so I doubt it's the same one unless it was refin'd.
