Neil Young's Hagström: The Story Behind The Guitar
Last month, we posted a Photo of the Moment of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young with Jimmy Page in 1974. In the photo, Neil Young is playing a Hagström guitar -- quite a rare sight.
Now here's the fascinating story about how Neil got the Hagström at Prune Music in Mill Valley, CA.
Patrick "Buzz" Burke, former co-owner of Prune Music in Mill Valley, remembers the day Neil Young came in to the store to buy guitars -- and the $25 guitar he continued to play on stage 20 years later.
