Test Driven

The Super Swede EMG accelerates FAST!

"The Super Swede reveals its character to be as dark as Darth Vader in a particularly bad mood"

Indeed, this axe is capable of delivering such an assaulting tone that might question certain motives for world domination! On the flip side, so extremely flexible by switching to cleaner "pristine tones" simply by activating the independent coil splits.

One might say that this "mean machine" has a split personality!
Check out the "Total Guitar" review on the Super Swede EMG here

Hagstrom Fact # 4

Hagstrom "Solid Body" Tailpiece

Developed in the 1970's for Hagstrom solid body guitars, the unique Hagstrom stop tailpiece incorporates 6 individual sustain blocks, which are independently anchored into the body, and where each string is fed and mounted through. 


Hagstrom Fact # 3

Did you know that each and everyone of our Hagstrom pickups are custom designed by us?


Hagstrom Fact # 2

Resinator Fretboards... What is this stuff?

Hagstrom’s own Resinator wood is a 50/50 (wood/composite) material used on all Hagstrom instruments, since the return of the Hagstrom brand around 10 years ago.


Hagstrom in Israel

Halilit announced as Hagstrom Distributor

We are pleased to announce that Hagstrom instruments are now available in Israel, where Hagstrom distribution has been appointed to Halilit - P. Greenspoon & Sons LTD., located in Tel Aviv.


Hagstrom Fact # 1

Extraordinary Hagstrom necks!

Many players do not realize all of the benefits of the Hagstrom H-EXPANDER truss rod. It's been known and proven for decades that Hagstrom necks require very few adjustments over time, and that the unique truss rod profile prevents the necks from twisting.


Hagstrom Welcomes...

Scottish "Big Country" to the Hagstrom Roster!

We warmly welcome the Scottish band "Big Country" to the ever growing Hagstrom family!
Big Country made their first international "splash" during the 1980's with their hit album "The Crossing" which echoed throughout the world, mixing hard driving rock, together with the sounds of their Scottish Highland roots.
