Within Norse Mythology of millennia far past, the warrior-elf god “Alvar” was a distinguished mighty warrior. As legend tells us, Alvar held a storm of emotion within his calm exterior, and was the perfect role model as a true best friend that could always be relied upon.
Hagstrom Guitars proudly present the Hagstrom Alvar, the smaller brother of the Hagstrom Viking which perfectly lives up to its Norse origins as the “Elf Warrior”. A true best friend and fellow fighting companion.
This semi-hollow bodied instrument in its “petite” body size, will be a perfect match for players searching for a semi-hollow in a smaller compact form. While it shares so many elements of its larger bodied sibling, the Alvar is a reigning force despite its diminutive proportions and elements.
The Elf-Warrior Alvar, always has your back
This 6-stringed wonder has the ability to easily “dial down” for cool and calmer moments. If battle insists and a raging fight pursues, he takes up his battle axe and delivers some of the tightest and controlled death blows of mayhem. Sturdy, focused and resistant to feedback at high volumes and excessive gain, this guitar reacts and steps up to the task required. It is surprisingly capable of delivering an onslaught of destruction taking players by pleasant surprise, with all of the power and might that this little beast can dish out.
Its sleek and slim multi-ply maple body and set maple neck, are key to delivering its sharp attack and long sustain. The dually equipped Hagstrom HJ-50 humbucking pickups transform this cool cat into a raging beast at the flick of a switch.
Our custom equipped RC-Circuit on each independent volume pot helps to keep the Alvar calm and subdued, while turning up the dials summon forth the elf-warlord.
