Southcoast music exce ptio nal ins trument s at exc eptional pric es... In 1969 the legendary luthier James Jimmy DAquisto began a cooperation with Hagstrom that was to last nearly 10 years. Hagstroms hollow-body archtop jazz guitar series is the result, and the masters craft is unmistakably written all over these fine instruments.In fact, the asymmetrical headstock used for these guitars and now used for most current Hagstrom models, was Jimmys design. Immaculately clean, well rounded jazz tones for single note patterns and walking-bass chordal comping are the HJ500s home turf, although it is fully capable of taking a different route into rock-oriented soundscapes when necessary. The minute you lay your hands on a Hagstrom and strum it for the first time, you can instantly feel why Hagstrom has legions of devoted fans and why so many pro musicians have made it their number one.

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 worlds fastest playing guitar. The H-Expander truss rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but it also contributes to Hagstroms unique tone. Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics the H-Expander adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.
Hagstrom models use 18:1 or 15:1 gear ratio machine heads based on our own designs to insure accurate tuning. Viking® and HB series basses feature machine heads with a 17:1 gear ratio. Resinator wood is a wood composite material that is both more uniform in density and more stable than any standard wood product.
These characteristics eliminate dead spots or wolf tones sometimes associated with conventional wood fingerboards. Resinator wood has an articulate sound similar 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 detail each note. Like our H-Expander truss rod, Resinator wood is a major contributor to the distinctive Hagstrom tone.
The classic Viking trapeze stringholder/-tailpiece design, is a work of art in itself. Right underneath the top part, where the two beautifully swept beams meet, it features a string claw for easy access and super comfortable string changes. Adorned with the legendary Hagstrom crest it truly is elegance defined.
Hagstrom uses a variety of different neck joints throughout our range. Our set-neck recipe is the classic and time-tested Mortise and Tenon joint, a design that most efficiently transfers string energy from neck to body, and can often only be found on more expensive custom-built guitars.A team of experienced and dedicated craftsmen hand carves every neck joint, insuring perfect execution of this traditional technique preferred by luthiers for generations. Hagstrom have been building electric guitars and basses since 1958.
The first Hagstrom electric guitars featured four pickups along with outrageous sparkle and pearloid celluloid finishes. With time Hagstrom expanded their line-up to include hollow body guitars such as the Viking and the Jimmy Jazz Archtop, 8 string electric basses and Hagstroms flagship models, the Swede and the Super Swede. Elvis played a Hagstrom Viking in his 1971 comeback special, Noel Redding Played a Hagstrom 8 string Bass with Jimmy Hendrix and Joe Walsh played a Hagstrom Swede throughout his "Rocky Mountain Way" period...And it's all there on Youtube! Today a whole new generation of players are rediscovering this revered brand and Hagstrom can be found on stage with artists such as the Foo Fighters, Mudhoney, Eagles of Death Metal, Rancid, Millencolin and more!
