Pat Smear of the world acclaimed Foo Fighters, needed a guitar with plenty of sustain and attack, to generate a tone that was explosive enough to compliment one of Rock music’s biggest bands in music today. Through Pat’s careful direction of combining his own favorite classic and modern Hagstrom models, Pat Smear and Hagstrom guitars proudly present the Hagstrom “Pat Smear” Signature guitar.
The Pat Smear Signature is built on a mahogany body and set neck, capped with a maple top, which is the basis for its rich, complex and exciting tone. The special design is a custom hybrid of a classic 1970’s Hagstrom model “H-IIN-OT” and the modern day “F-200”. Pat chose the Hagstrom “Custom 58” pickups to specifically voice this versatile instrument in order to produce a steady and solid tone.
Each guitar is built by the exact same machines, people, materials and specifications that went into each of Pat’s own personal guitars, which are the essential building blocks that guarantee guitarists that no corners have been cut to produce this unique instrument. What you get is what Pat demanded.
Guitarists are promised the exact same instrument that has graced many of the biggest stages around the world. Pat demanded a “Workhorse” that would never let him down, where this guitar will proveto “Hold its own”, even through intensive touring, just as Pat can verify through his performances throughout the world. You are guaranteed that any Pat Smear Signature model available at your favorite local Hagstrom dealer is “fit for fight” and is built according to Pat’s exact specifications.
