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.
To celebrate the 60th birthday of the Hagstrom Guitars, the designers have taken the classic Super Swede, and appointed it with stark, yet elegant cosmetics. Available in Balck and White finishes.
A mahogany body topped with a thick maple cap is joined to a mahogany neck using Hagstrom’s classic mortise and long-tenon neck joint, and featuring our H-Expander™ truss-rod and Resinator™ fingerboard. The result is a voice that combines all of the sustain, clarity and attack Hagstrom is known for. The theme continues with a complement of black chrome hardware built to Hagstrom’s highest standards, Graph Tech ratio tuners, the unique Sustain-Block™ tailpiece, and a perfectly matched tune-o-matic bridge.
Once again, Hagstrom have chosen to work with the great Swedish pickup designer, Johan Lundgren. Lundgren’s AlNiCo-5 pickup occupies the bridge position and his AlNiCo-2 design takes the neck position, a perfect choice for expressiveness, dynamism and versatility. The model features an individual coil split using push/pull tone controls and Hagstrom’s standard R/C circuit on the volume control.
