Hagstrom Super Swede LTD - Made in Sweden

HAGSTROM

Exclusive piece of Art in Cosmic Black Burst. Limited Edition, only 30 pieces made world-wide. Hagstrom now returns to its roots with production out of Sweden for the first time since the early 1980’s.

Made in Sweden

To commemorate this historic moment, Hagstrom is pleased to present the introduction of a very special limited edition of one of Hagstrom’s historic flagship models, the Hagstrom Super Swede. First introduced to the Hagstrom range in 1978, this limited edition will be produced in a total of 30 pieces world-wide. Each of these limited edition instruments is each meticulously built using premium African Mahogany necks and bodies, Mortise and Tenon necks joints, united together using some of the highest graded ¾” flame maple tops. To top off this classic combination of the 25.5” scaled Super Swede, each instrument is offered in one of the most popular Hagstrom finishes, “Cosmic Black Burst”. Each guitar is numbered and documented, to commemorate the first step of returning this point of production back to our motherland.

Lundgren Pickups

Hagstrom have joined forces with Johan Lundgren of Swedish Lundgren pickups, where each of the instrument’s features a perfectly matched pair of Lundgren’s hand-built pickups from Sweden. The Super Swede with its long sustain and powerful tone, is perfectly matched with Lundgren’s Alnico 5 splitable “Suckerbucker” in the bridge position. The tone can be best described as “tight” and “lively” which only contributes to the Super Swedes already miles long natural sustain, which literally “sucks” the tone out from the instrument. Lead players will feel an immediate need to lengthen their solos, as the output of this “medium plus” bridge humbucker sings to bring out the guitar’s full potential.

Sucker Bucker and Heaven 75

In order to provide a perfectly-balanced marriage with the “Suckerbucker” and provide extra versatility, Lundgren’s “Heaven 57” was chosen for the neck pickup adding “vintage breath” and delivering a sensational and harmonic clarity. Players will have the best of both worlds using this perfect calibrated set of Lundgren pickups, which will guarantee bringing a wide grin to the face of any player. It’s literally a match made in heaven.

    Product information

    The Hagstrom Super Swede has been considered one of Hagstrom's flagship models, since it was first introduced to the world back in the late 1970's.

    Each Super Swede is crafted using a mahogany body, maple top, and set mahogany neck. The Super Swedes 25.5" scale length, provides a brighter tone and longer sustain which makes a wonderful instrument for players looking for more flexibility than any single cut guitar can offer. The Super Swede naturally features Hagstroms own renowned H-Expander Truss rod providing an ultimately stable neck that will not warp or twist, and also being topped with Hagstroms own Resinator Fret board material for increased sustain and even tone throughout the entire fret board.
