All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include a patented H-Expander™ 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 world’s fastest playing guitar. The H-Expander™ truss rod does not only provide ultimate stability of the neck, but also plays a hand in providing you with the unique “Hagstrom tone”. Longer sustain and a sharper attack, are a couple of the sonic characteristics that the H-Expander™ adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.

There are a number of other specialty parts designed exclusively by Hagstrom, which greatly enhances the playability, stability and tone of their instruments.

Hagstrom are convinced that such unique specialized parts and construction make every difference to contribute to building a superior instrument.

Such parts as unique Hagstrom tailpiece units, Tremar system, Full Contact Tremolo system, Customized Hagstrom pickups, are only a few of the benefits found on Hagstrom guitars.

Hagstrom uses only the finest select tone woods and figured wood stocks to enhance the sound and beauty of each instrument. North American Hard Rock Maple, arguably the finest neck wood and used by the best luthiers world wide, further enhances the playability, durability and bright articulate tone.

Resinator™ Wood is a wood composite material that is homogeneous in nature and is more stable than any standard wood product. It is the perfect fingerboard material in that it eliminates wolf tones or hot spots. It has an articulate sound simular to high quality Ebony, but without any of the problems associated with Ebony. It provides an stable and clear tone, and also adds higher overtones and harmonics which uniquely details each note played. Like our H-Expander™ truss rod, our Resinator™ wood also plays a major part in producing the special “Hagstrom tone”.

We at Clevedon Music Shop absolutely love Hagstrom guitars and this guitar in perticular is a very special and versatile guitar, Well worth popping in and giving it go and let us know what you think!
