This is a new guitar
Includes a Henry Heller Silver Series Deluxe Gig Bag, a $70 street priceÂ value.Â
First introduced in the late 1970â€™s, the Super Swede has always been considered one of Hagstromâ€™s flagship models. Each Super Swede is crafted using a mahogany body, maple top, and set mahogany neck.
With a 25.5â€ scale length and a pair of coil-split-capable Custom 58 AlNiCo pickups, the Super Swede provides a brighter sounding, longer sustaining, and more flexible single-cutaway guitar for players looking for something more than any regular single-cut can offer.
Naturally, the Super Swede is equipped with Hagstromâ€™s renowned H-Expanderâ„¢ truss rod and Resinatorâ„¢ fretboard for a playing surface that provides the ultimate in stability, comfort and tone.
Super Swede Foundations
Hagstrom Machine Heads
Hagstrom models use 18:1 or 15:1 gear ratio machine heads based on our own designs to insure accurate tuning. VikingÂ® and HB series basses feature machine heads with a 17:1 gear ratio.
All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include our patented H-Expanderâ„¢ truss rod. Providing tension at both ends and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet light-weight alloy truss rod allows for a very low action and thin neck, two factors that were instrumental in earning Hagstrom its reputation as the worldâ€™s fastest playing guitar. The H-Expanderâ„¢ truss rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but it also contributes to Hagstromâ€™s unique tone. Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics the H-Expanderâ„¢ adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.
Resinatorâ„¢ wood is a wood composite material that is both more uniform in density and more stable than any standard wood product. These characteristics eliminate dead spots or â€œwolf tonesâ€ sometimes associated with conventional wood fingerboards. Resinatorâ„¢ wood has an articulate sound similar to high quality ebony, but without any of the problems associated with ebony. It provides a stable and clear tone, and also adds higher overtones and harmonics which uniquely detail each note. Like our H-Expanderâ„¢ truss rod, Resinatorâ„¢ wood is a major contributor to the distinctive â€œHagstrom toneâ€.
Hagstrom uses a variety of different neck joints throughout our range. Our set-neck recipe is the classic and time-tested Mortise and Tenon joint, a design that most efficiently transfers string energy from neck to body, and can often only be found on more expensive custom-built guitars. A team of experienced and dedicated craftsmen hand carves every neck joint, insuring perfect execution of this traditional technique preferred by luthiers for generations.
Sustain Block Tailpiece
Hagstromâ€™s unique Sustain Block Tailpieceâ„¢ was the result of design work starting in 1976 and made its first appearance on Swede and Super Swede guitars produced in 1978. Since then it has been a signature feature on many of our solid body models. Each string terminates in a single, massive brass block coupled directly to the guitarâ€™s body. The blocks are detached from one another to reduce interference between the strings, maximizing each stringâ€™s unique contribution.
