The Hagstrom HIIBN was the descendent of the HIIB; a broadly similar model produced from 1965-71. The HIIBN shared the same styling, especially with regards the body / scratchplate; but had an entirely different neck, with contrasting peghead arrangement: two per side rather than four-in-a-row. It had new humbucking pickups instead of the older single coil units, and four control pots, rather than one pot and four switches.
They were produced by Hagstrom in Alvdalen, Sweden, between 1969 and 1976; a total of 3493 basses in 14 batches. In America, it was known as the F400N and was Hagstrom’s bass companion model to the HIIN (F200N) six string guitar. The model was later renamed HB901 when it was distributed
