Hagstrom Three Kings is a limited run series of guitars based on the three best selling solid bodies, Swede, Super Swede and Ultra Swede.
Why call them the Three Kings? One possibility is a connection with Swedish royal history or with ancient Scandinavian folkore, and, in fact, this would not be too far off the mark. But a much simpler reason they're called the Three Kings is because there are three of them and, well, … THEY RULE!
A dark, heraldic motif centered on a raised medallion embedded into the top is set off by black chrome hardware elements and black pearloid binding. Handsomely tooled knobs, custom-made by Q-Parts® specifically for this project, complete the package.
Swedish mastermind Johan Lundgren has designed a set of humbucking pickups that is great for any type of music, but would also offer a level of dynamics and intensity enabling entry into heavier, edgier, more progressive domains.
The guitars are also equipped with a set of Ratio® tuning machines by Graph-Tech®. Each string is mated to a tuning machine with a custom gear ratio so that one turn equals one tone, regardless of the string. Predictable, precise and efficient, Ratio® makes tuning intuitive and natural.
