Hagstrom Super Swede Bass Natural Mahogany
Manufacturer's ID: 49SUSWEBNMG
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.
This great looking bass provides a good reason to step away form the usual shapes and go for something that’s a little different but still classic and tasteful!
This moody looking beast actually started life out as a collaboration with Abba’s bassist! We don’t think you’d necessarily know that from checking out its lean, carved, double-cutaway design!
Hagstrom have made this Super Swede bass from Mahogany, both for the body and the through-neck. This has a standard 34” scale-length, perfect for all styles. The bound fingerboard and headstock adds character, as do the stylish block inlays. It is available in two finishes, this one here being Natural Mahogany.
The two pickups may resemble single coils but are, in fact, Quad-stacked humbuckers! Yes, these are called J-Quads and are designed by Hagstrom themselves. Rather than going for out-and-out power, the point of these pickups is more about bringing the background noise down. The sound itself is nicely balanced, with the natural thickness and sustain you’d expect with the Mahogany through-neck construction.
The excellent bass is a breath of fresh air. It’s stylish, comfortable and has a big, focussed sound that will suit most any genre. The Hagstrom Super Swede Bass has everything.
