Great review of the Swedie
in Germany's Magazine Gitarre&Bass
Hagstrom Swedie - Cute isn't she? The cuddly little sister of the Swede.
Bottom Line of the review:
Hagstrom's little Swedie is a streamlined, make no prisoners version of its bigger Swede sister. But that doesn't hurt whatsoever. With her stunning metallic finishes she boasts looks that kill and more importantly plays like a dream and offers bold rock sounds. The powerful bridge humbucker in particular provides lots of fun. With slightly slimmer body, Custom 62 pickups she might seem like the "light" version of the original guitar. Nothing could be further from the truth. It depends on what you like to hear and is down to taste. It's nice to have the choice though. Now it's your turn!
