What we say:
Hagstrom are a classic Swedish guitar brand dating back to the mid Twenties! Guitar makers since the late 1950s, Hagstrom have always offered their own stylish takes on classic solidbody and hollowbody guitar designs.
Hagstrom are popular with a diverse range of players: indie and punk guitarists love them as much as jazz players and metal guitar players. Their robust build quality, strong tones and left-of-centre good looks all play a lot in this!
Hagstrom guitars all feature a patented H-Expander truss rod for supreme stability. They also use patented ‘Resinator’ fingerboards which are made form a composite material that feels similar to Ebony. The necks are real selling points for Hagstrom: it is a supreme pleasure to play these! They feel slick, solid and comfortable, just as they should.
Hagstrom are an excellent choice for the iconoclastic musician looking for something traditional and a little different, with modern functionality and great sounds.
The Hagstrom Fantomen is the signature instrument of the ‘Nameless Ghouls’ from Swedish Horror-Rockers Ghost. These large-bodied Mahogany monsters are built for hard rock! They are large but comparatively thin and light, perfect for long live sets.
The pickups in the Hagstrom Fantomen are extremely impressive: specially designed units from Swedish maker Johan Lundgren brings quality and versatility: these coil tapped humbuckers go the full length from chiming clean to unrestrained brutality. Together with the hardtail bridge and mass of Mahogany, this adds up to an epically focussed sound.
Any guitarist who uses riffs in their musical vocabulary with take a shine to the Hagstrom Fantomen. This Fantomen is available here in Black Gloss.
