The Corvette was also known as the Condor after a glitch with Gretch - (Not General Motors!)
The Basses were The Coronado, or Futurama Basses in the UK - confusing eh?

Hagstrom once mixed the texts for the three pickup Corvette and the two pickup Impala in an advert, and thus confused a lot of people. The three-pickup guitars are Corvettes in most countries but in the US they became Condors as you see below. 

The Impala the two pick-up model, never had to change name.
Each model had the "Kings Neck" truss rod cover plate, and although the bass here doesn't have one the Hagstrom UK 6 string bass does.

 

There is a link in the text above to the Hagstrom UK SIX string Bass, Coronado VI (in UK, Futurama VI). It has the reddish sunburst colouring a bit like the Impala below. Soon we hope to present a matching Corvette. Personally, although I love the natural wood finishes in most guitars I think these are outrageous enough to suit a touch of colour!

The bass is very comfortable with a totally cool sound - even though I'm not a bass player. I am told (by Rob, Canada) the Corvette is a gorgeous beast to play too. (One arrived at Hagstrom UK 4th October 2002)

There's nothing like a REAL original Swedish made Hagstrom (and there are loads around), but if it 'floats your boat', or you can't find an original then who are we to say?

Plenty has been said already and
will be said forever forward probably.
Only you know what's right for you!
