Hagstrom Limited Edition Fantomen Silver Sparkle
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.
This Limited edition Fantomen has a beautifully sparkly Silver finish, bringing extra glamour to whichever stage it finds itself on.
Any guitarist who uses riffs in their musical vocabulary with take a shine to the Hagstrom Fantomen.
Sharp attack and more sustain
With a relatively thin 1¼” (3.5cm) body, the Fantomen is beautifully balanced and surprisingly lightweight. A 25.5” (648mm) scale provides a slightly sharper attack and more sustain than classic 24.75” scale guitars. A neck joint design that provides total, unrestricted access to all 22 frets will meet the needs of even the most virtuosic player.
Immense expressive range
Our goal was to equip the Fantomen with electronics that would allow for a varied tonal palette ranging from classic, vintage colors to screaming metallic brilliance. We worked with Swedish pickup guru Johan Lundgren, designer of pickups used by artists such as Meshuggah’s Martin Hagström (no relation!). Lundgren recommended two different humbucker designs: No. 2 in the neck position and No. 5 in the bridge position. The result covers an immense expressive range; from smooth, warm tones to the kind of attack and intense dynamic output that would satisfy the demands of even the most extreme musical styles. Each pickup can be split to single-coil mode by means of push/pull switches incorporated into the tone controls for even more sonic flexibility. This guitar speaks with many distinct voices.
