Overview

When their production stopped in 1983, Hagstrom guitars became instant collectors items. For decades they maintained their market value so well that Hagstrom resumed production in 1996 to rave reviews. The Swede electric guitar is one of their most cherished models, reborn with a mahogany body, carved mahogany top, set mahogany neck, bound Resinator fretboard, and 2 Hagstrom Custom '58 humbuckers for the classic tone that made Hagstrom famous.

Hagstrom's patented H-Expander truss rod prevents twisting as well as warpage. 5-ply top binding, pearl block inlays, and chrome hardware provide sharp visuals. Case sold separately.

GREAT SOUNDING/GREAT FEEL

By Richard Gladis

from Brooklyn

Comments about Hagstrom Swede Electric Guitar:

What can I say other than reiterate what others have already. Aesthetically, my Mahogany Hagstrom looks great. Sound wise it has great, warm tone. Playing it on a clean channel is sharp and it equally holds well through distortion. For the price I could never have asked for anything better.

Love this guitar!

By MICHAEL COATES

from Willingboro, NJ

Comments about Hagstrom Swede Electric Guitar:

This guitar is built VERY WELL and the quality control that went over mine must have been very attentive. I could not find a flaw in the finish and the set-up was great out of the box. The Hagstrom '58 Pickups are crazy good! Great tone and many options to shape your sound with the additional toggle. I got the mahogany gloss finish and love it. Deep, deep red color and very classy. The pick-guard seems like a cheaper plastic than most others... it's not very rigid. But who cares, that's just cosmetics. Overall, I urge you to grab on of these guitars. Beautiful and sounds tremendous. Nobody in your circle of friends will have a Hagstrom, so the unique factor is there as well. Get one of these now!

Sweet Swede

By MICHAEL COATES

from Willingboro, NJ

Comments about Hagstrom Swede Electric Guitar:

I have many guitars in the Hagstrom Swede's price-range and several on tiers above this cost point, so I feel very comfortable in my ability to evaluate this instrument. The Hagstrom Swede is an AMAZING value... and by that I do not mean "cheap." I mean what you get for your money is tremendous. Let's start with the neck- smooth fretboard, well done frets, not too chunky or too thin. Easy to play and the resinator material on the fingerboard is super low friction. Nice. The guitar is not overly heavy but resonates extremely well. The custom '58 humbuckers are excellent! With the dual toggle switches you can really zero in on some sharp cleans and some "sand-in-your-bathingsuit" gritty tones. Very crunchy when you need it to be. The tone pots could be a little more responsive and there were a few minor imperfections in my paint job (I got the gloss mahogany) but overall a beautiful and well made guitar that will be an asset to your collection and your musicianship. For this price... and GC's no-hassle return policy... order it FOR SURE. If it doesn't happen to be your cup of tea, no harm done. But, I'm telling you, you'll hold on tho this axe and be glad you did.

This guitar are powerfull, have nice bass tone and great with distortion, i prefer the neck of hagstrom than Gibson, its thicker, and the resinator fretboard its more than nice. If you want technology and style go for a Hagstrom you will be not dissapoint!

Take a walk off the beaten path

By Rock N' Roll dad

from Niagara Falls, Canada

Comments about Hagstrom Swede Electric Guitar:

If you're anyhting like me in that you love the les paul but don't have the coin to spend on a bona fide Gibson and are afraind fo the stigma of an epiphone then you need to take a serious look at the Hagstrom swede. It features the single cut away body design that has helped define Rock n'Roll over the past 40 years. The set mahogany neck has a nice round profile that's thin enough for some serious shredding but still has enough chunkyness to let you know it's there. The mahogany top over a mohogany body mixed with the stock pick ups does give it an overly dark sound. I personally like the dark tone to it but if you're someone who like a brighter sound the 3 way tone toggle switch does add a little but if a change (it's much more pronounced with distortion) but if that's not enough it's nothing a simple pick up grade can't fix. Over all if you're looking for a good LP style guitar then this is one to consider. It plays fast, sounds beautiful, is affordable and it carries a name that's still cool to be seen on stage with.
