Here is a history on Tarrega!!!



These early acoustics were made in Sweden by Bjarton/Hagstrom and imported and distributed by Fender from the mid- to late 1960s.

Responsible for all Bjarton's exports, Hagstrom was the hub of a large transatlantic trade network. Acoustic guitars made by Bjarton were sold worldwide with the Hagstrom logo.

In the States Hagstrom sold thousands to Fender, who marketed them under the name Tarrega from 1962 until June -1966, stock was available in USA until around 1969. These models - a flat top (FT108), 2 Concert models (FT110 FT111), and 5 Grand Concert models (FT112-116)  were named after the famous Spanish classical composer Fransisco Tarrega who died in 1909.

The other main export was to - yes - the B&J company who used – yes – the name España. Similarly, Crucianelli semi-acoustic guitars sold in the States and Canada with the España logo, and maybe back in Scandinavia with Hagstrom – or even no-name at all on them!

The Fender Tarrega guitars debuted in '63 and were essentially the same as España Guitars, but had a different headstock design, with two smaller humps on either side of a centre dip. At least three different grand concert models were offered. the FT-116, FT-114, and FT-113 although there were undoubtedly other concert sizes too. The FT-116 was rosewood with maple purfling, rosewood head facing and bridge, ebony fingerboard, and gold-plated tuners with pearl buttons.  The FT-113 featured matched walnut back and sides, with ebony fingerboard and nickel-plated hardware. The FT-114 was the same except for a blond maple body. The Tarregas were offered until '69.
