Added to the mix is a matched pair of Hagstrom-designed Custom 62 open-coil humbucking pickups for a tight, controlled modern tone suitable for a wide spectrum of musical styles. A solid carved mahogany body bolted to a maple neck featuring Hagstromâ€™s UltraSlim-D profile, one of the fastest youâ€™ll ever play, completes this value-priced yet feature-rich package.

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.
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.
Slightly brighter and more vivid tone Ample amounts of attack/"snap" Strong resonance and sustain Great serviceability
