Maud E. Licious THE JCQ

H-Expander™ All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include our patented H-Expander™ truss rod. Providing tension at both ends and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet light-weight alloy truss rod allows for a very low action and thin neck, two factors that were instrumental in earning Hagstrom its reputation as the world’s fastest playing guitar. The H-Expander™ truss rod does not only provide ultimate stability of the neck, but also plays a hand in providing you with the unique “Hagstrom tone”. Longer sustain and a round attack, are a couple of the sonic characteristics that the H-Expander™ adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.

The Foundations Resinator™ Wood is a wood composite material that is homogeneous in nature and is more stable than any standard wood product. It is the perfect fingerboard material in that it eliminates wolf notes or hot spots. It has an articulate sound simular to high quality Ebony, but without any of the problems associated with Ebony. It provides a stable and clear tone, and also adds higher overtones and harmonics which uniquely details each note played. Like our H-Expander™ truss rod, our Resinator™ wood also plays a major part in producing the special “Hagstrom tone”.

Hagstrom uses only the finest select tone woods and figured wood stocks to enhance the sound and beauty of each instrument. Timber is sourced from all over the world to help create a sonically and visually inspiring instrument.

3

Unique innovations There are a number of other specialty parts designed exclusively by Hagstrom, which greatly enhance the playability, stability and tone of our instruments. We are convinced that such unique specialized parts and construction make every difference to contribute to building a superior instrument. Such parts as our unique Hagstrom tailpiece units, Tremar system, Full Contact Tremolo system, Customized Hagstrom pickups, are only a few of the benefits found on Hagstrom guitars.

Hagstrom Machine Heads Ensuring accurate tuning, Hagstrom’s own 18:1 and 15:1 gear ratio machine heads are each used throughout our Hagstrom models. Viking® and HB series basses feature a 17:1 gear ratio for accurate tuning.

Graphtech Black Tusq Graphtech Black Tusq composite nuts ensure increased sustain, tone, and energy vibration throughout the entire neck. This is a very important feature that also provides smoother and more accurate tuning of your Hagstrom instrument. The use of Graphtech nuts also allows the string to slide effortlessly within the nuts slots, allowing for better tuning precision and improving the ability of the instrument staying in tune, even in the hands of the most demanding players.

Whether you choose the legendary, classic rock approved Black Gloss, the devine Tobacco Sunburst, or the dazzling, highly figured flame maple top finishes in Vintage Sunburst or Cosmic Blackburst: The Northen Super Swede’s looks are remarkably complimented by its tonal prowess. Powered by a No. 2 set of Johan Lundgren designed double coil greatness, the Northen Super Swede dishes out sounds as diverse as classic, wellarticulated humbucking heaven, or thanks to the individual coil tap for each pickup and its longer scale of 25,5”, a distinct tone that can only be called “twangers delight”, reminiscent of the most iconic single coil equipped axes.

adeep bond Pat Smear needs no introduction. Beyond churning out colossal riffs for the “Foo Fighters” and his Punk roots starting with “the Germs” and into touring with “Nivana”, there’s an unmistakable, deep bond between 12

Pat and Hagstrom Guitars. Hagstrom has been Pat‘s instrument of choice since the 1970‘s, and has graced the largest stages of the world with his road worthy Hagstroms in hand. Pat has a similar affection for his instrument of choice. And we at Hagstrom were more than pleased to transform his privately customized road proven workhorse into the Pat Smear Signature guitar you see here.

This slick black beauty is a voluptuous blend of a Vintage Hagstrom H-IIN-OT and the modern day Super Swede. It sports a sleek mahogany body, capped with a deeply contoured maple top, for extra depth and projection. In close combination with Hagstrom’s Custom 58 AlNiCo humbucking pickups, the Pat Smear Signature guitar cuts through the mix and sits right in the middle of the Foo’s triple guitar onslaught. Elegant clean tones meet highly saturated distortion power. Just what Pat ordered.

The Hagstrom Super Swede has always 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 Swede’s 25.5” scale length and the coil split option of the trusted Custom 58

Super Swede EMG in Cosmic Black Burst

AlNiCo pickups, provide a brighter tone and longer sustain which makes it a wonderful instrument for players looking for more flexibility than any regular single cut guitar can offer. The Super Swede naturally features Hagstrom’s own renowned H-Expander™ Truss rod providing an ultimately stable neck that will not warp or twist, and also being topped with Hagstrom’s own Resinator™ Fretboard material for increased sustain and even tone throughout the entire fret board.

Killswitch Built in effect at your “finger tap”. With the onboard, vandal-proof kill switch you give the much tried 3-way toggle pickup switch a welcomed relief. Usually misused by rockers of all genres, (by rolling off the neck pickup volume and rapidly rocking back and forth the toggle) you now have a dedicated switch to cut off the output of your Super Swede EMG in a more apt and rhythmic manner.

Bringing Monumental P-90 Tone to a Hagstrom Classic Enter the Viking® P, chiefly based on the original model and its semi-hollow maple ply body, maple set neck, and stylish Hagstrom trapeze tailpiece which continues to adorn this classic and influential instrument. Countless hours were placed into specially matching custom made “Custom P-50” P-90 pickups that were to compliment the Viking®’s clear and natural accent, resulting in a rich and harmonious tone without any discoloration of the musical tonal spectrum that the Viking® is so well known for. The Hagstrom Viking® P has the ability of producing strong, yet organic clean tones, which will win the heart of any Blues or Jazz

Viking® Deluxe Baritone

Thor’s hammer As our Viking® is renowned as an instrument capable of delivering a wide variety of tones to suit a multitude of playing styles, we expand our selection of the semi hollow realm with the introduction of the Hagstrom Viking® Baritone electric guitar. Like its sisters, the Viking® Baritone was specially designed to produce a wider range of tonal versatility to players looking for an instrument in the lower voiced sub-range to cover a wealth of music styles. Usually, versatility is often overlooked on baritone instruments which are built for the market today, until now. We have even gone so far as to develop two entirely new Hagstrom pickups to further compliment the variation of different tones that this guitar was to produce. The Viking® Baritone includes the new Hagstrom “Custom 58’C” Humbucker in Viking® Baritone Deluxe in Black Gloss

the bridge position, being a semi-open coiled humbucker enhancing the instruments acoustic ringing clarity and sustain, even in the lower sub-registers offered by this instrument. Hagstrom’s new “P-Urified” pickup, being a specially designed full humbucking sized P-90 pickup, sits in the neck position and offers a warm and open tone while keeping the lower frequencies “tight and controlled”. The Viking® Baritone delivers earth shattering and “varied bari-tones” from clean and classic sounds recognizable from the 1960’s, “spaghetti westerns“ crunchy overdriven sounds from the 70’s and 80’s, and even perfectly caters to the modern day “Über-Driven” tones demanded by today’s players. Even at higher volumes using excessive gain, the Viking® Baritone provides the player with an ability to offer controlled “musical feedback”, thanks to the instrument‘s semi-hollow body. The 28” scaled Viking® Baritone neck is equipped with 22 frets, opposed to the more commonly used 24 fret baritone guitars, being offered on the market today.

of over 200 lbs of pressure on the neck, the H-Expander™ truss rod will keep the 12-string neck straight for years to come. Due to the further unique frequencies created with the help of the 40

Resinator™ Fretboard, the volume and tone of the octave strings are further enhanced to keep up with the naturally fuller volume of the standard strings, to allow for a lavishing and balanced 12 string sound. To match the Viking® DLX 12’s fuller acoustic sound, a set of our Hagstrom H-50 humbucking pickups are adopted to provide a natural and clean calibrated electric tone, delivering cleaner vintage tones familiar from the golden vintage years, as well as the ability to deliver nastier tones, to open up a whole new expressive world, where 12 string guitars have never ventured before.

Deuce

The wicked doublecut variant of our ever popular Super Swede model. The Deuce boasts and impressive list of road-proven features. 25,5“/648mm scale, comfortably shaped twin cutaways, a deeply resonant mahogany body with a highly sculpted maple top and push pull pots on the tone knobs for an individual coil tap of the Custom 58 AlNiCo humbuckers. This sinister beauty is capable of unleashing the proverbial south of heaven humbucker inferno, but also angelic layers versatility. Combine that with an outstanding playing comfort and the Deuce is your instrument of choice. Deuce F/Tremar Deuce F A match forged in fire. The deep impact and fierce attack of a solid body, blended with the long sustain/airiness of the semi hollow guitar. The acoustic chamber with corresponding f-hole on the upper body half not only helps to reduce the overall weight but congenially equips the Deuce-F with a unique and warm tone. The individual coil-split of the Custom 58 AlNiCo humbuckers provides crispy clean single coil sounds at the pull of a pot. The Tremar Deuce-F brings Hagstrom’s widely acclaimed Tremar system to the Deuce range. Equipped with a roller T-O-M bridge, this beauty provides reliable tuning stability and smooth vibrato action. For Fusion, Funk and Jazz players these instruments are an instant recommendation. Naturally rockers from all backgrounds are also invited to put them through the wringer.

When one thinks of Dalarna in Sweden, thoughts often fall on ancient Swedish tradition, art & handcraft, Swedish midsummer, and of course Hagstrom. The new acoustic Hagstrom guitars are inspired by Dalarna’s great tradition and handcraft culture, which is something that has always influenced the region even proceeding the time Albin Hagstrom started his 58

company back in 1925.

Sped The Dutch Uncles Photo: Gabriella Tavini


Guitars This is the reason the new Hagstrom acoustic series have adopted the names of locations around Dalarna, which reflect Hagstrom’s unique tradition and history. With this, we introduce the new Hagstrom acoustic models: Siljan, Mora, Elfdalia and Dalarna. Each model has been specially developed to produce a unique tone with the help of hand selected and aged timbers. These special materials are incorporated into popular and well known body designs, such as Dreadnought, Grand Auditorium and Concert models. Common to all Hagstrom acoustic models, is the genuine Resinator™ wood material, used for both the fret board and bridges on Hagstrom acoustic guitars. Resinator™ wood actually magnifies the instruments acoustic response which results in an incredibility clear and articulate tone no matter where you play on the neck. This ultimately resulting in Resinator™ wood being a sonically superior material used in building acoustic guitars. Together with Hagstrom’s unique and special materials, traditional Hagstrom headstock and detailed with Hagstrom’s own unique tuners, each of these ingredients gives Hagstrom guitars a timeless design. Each one of these instruments represents the Swedish tradition and contemporary handcraft specially inspired from the Dalarna region in Sweden.

The popular Dreadnought body shape made its debut approximately 100 years ago. It is known for producing deep and prominent subs, smooth mids, and has a pleasant high end attack. A very popular body shape for flatpickers.

The Grand Auditorium body shape has a tendency to emphasise the pronunciation on the bass and high frequencies. It is a very popular body size for finger style players, but it also performs extremely well for flat pickers as well.

The Hagstrom Concert body shape focuses mostly on the mids and highs. The smaller body size is quite popular with vintage enthusiasts looking for a cutting edge tone, and as well as for players looking for a smaller comfortably sized body shape.

The Dalarna models using a solid Sitka Spruce top, with back and sides made of Rosewood, represents a familiar and recognizable tone for many. However, with the use of our special Resinator™ wood materials as used on all of the Hagstrom acoustic guitars, the tone of this popular wood combination will be noticeably enhanced which will definitely place itself in a class of its own.

THE DUTCH UNCLES

Dynamic&Harmonious The Elfdalia models using a solid Cedar top with Mahogany back and sides, provides a very “lively tone“ as Cedar brings out the upper-mid range, and has a tendency to be “harmonically active”. Cedar is a great material to express the instruments overtones. Cosmetically darker than spruce, it often has a much tighter wood grain. This allows the top of the instrument to vibrate more, providing a more responsive tone. Cedar works very well for both flat pickers and finger style techniques.

Radiant&Luminous The Mora models using a solid Mahogany top with Mahogany back and sides provides a more brilliant and brighter tone with a generous amount of mid tones. However, the model produces a rather full tone without being considered “trebly“or “thin“. Using this single species of wood for the entire instrument provides a truly unique tone, where the instrument seems to be specially voiced for soloing and finger picking styles, as single notes and phrasing seem to jump out from the instrument.
