Revolutionary Neck Design All All new Hagstrom electric guitars include the patented H-Expander™ Truss Rod. Providing tension at either end and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet lightweight 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 fretboard is made from Hagstrom’s own Resinator™ Wood, a composite wood 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 tones or hot spots, and it has an articulate sound like high quality Ebony, but without the problems associated with Ebony.
Custom Hardware With unique aesthetics and ensuring accurate tuning, Hagstrom’s exclusive 18:1 gear ratio machine heads are featured on all electric models. Fixed bridge guitars get the Hagstrom Block Stop Tailpiece, another Hagstrom original, that drives the wood of the guitar body with uninhibited string energy generating maximum tone and sustain. On XL Series and F Series guitars, the Full Contact System tremolo bridge (FCS-1) offers more contiguous contact than any other tremolo bridge on the market. All guitars feature the Self-lubricating Graphite Composite Nut that further ensures increased sustain and vibration through improved transfer of energy to the neck.
Select Materials Hagstrom uses only the finest select tone woods and figured wood stocks to enhance the sound and beauty of each instrument. Carefully selected hard tropical Mahogany tone woods are used on the body to produce a powerful and warm sound, and North American Hard Rock Maple provides a bright articulate tone.
Jaw-Dropping Finish Hagstrom guitars feature a high grade polyester finish which is much harder, smoother and denser while also producing much better sonic performance than polyurethane finishes used by other guitar companies.
