Hagstrom

A super fast playing Swede model with a long scale, coil-tapped humbuckers, and the Tremar vibrato bridge.

The Hagstrom Tremar Super Swede Electric Guitar features a single-cutaway mahogany body that is topped with a flamed maple cap, 2-1/2" scale set mahogany neck, and 22-fret Resonator composite fingerboard dressed in pearl block inlays. The Tremar Super Swede is loaded with Hagstrom's Custom 58 Alnico V humbucking pickups that are matched and optimized for a fat, warm vintage tone. A mini-toggle switch lets you also get great single-coil tones for maximum musical expressiveness. The Hagstrom Tremar Vibrato with Tremar roller bridge was designed to ensure perfect tuning and intonation even under heavy use. With custom hardware to match, the Hagstrom Super Swede Tremar is singular in its style and grace.

Revolutionary Neck Design
The Super Swede Tremar and all other Hagstrom electric guitars include the patented H-Expander Truss Rod. Providing tension at either end and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet lightweight 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 fretboard is made from Hagstrom's own Resinator wood, a composite wood 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, and it has an articulate sound like high quality ebony, but without the problems associated with ebony.

Custom Hardware
With unique aesthetics and ensuring accurate tuning, Hagstrom's exclusive 18:1 gear ratio machine heads are featured on all electric guitar models. The Hagstom Super Swede Tremar guitar features the self-lubricating Graphite Composite Nut that further ensures increased sustain and vibration through improved transfer of energy to the neck.

Select Materials
Hagstrom uses only the finest select tone woods and figured wood stocks to enhance the sound and beauty of each instrument. Carefully selected hard tropical mahogany tone woods are used on the body to produce a powerful and warm sound, and North American hard rock maple provides a bright articulate tone.

Jaw-Dropping Finish
Hagstrom guitars feature a high-grade polyester finish, which is much harder, smoother and denser while also producing much better sonic performance than polyurethane finishes used by other guitar companies.

Since 1958, Hagstrom has been combining acclaimed design with premium materials, unique hardware, and innovative manufacturing techniques to create these magnificent guitars and are known among guitarists for their playability, beauty, and durability. Case sold separately.

        Comments about Hagstrom Super Swede Tremar Electric Guitar:

        I have to say , I never picked up a guitar of this quality. I would say its made as well or better then my Gibson Les Paul. The action is amazing and the tremelo comes right back and never goes out of tune. I bought a restock and still cant figure why it is one. Maybe beacuse the high E string was broken when I opened the box lol.

          Comments about Hagstrom Super Swede Tremar Electric Guitar:

          This guitar came to me as a restock, but I have yet to find any flaws with it after three weeks of play. It was set up excellently and required no adjustment. The fret board is a joy to play on - no dead spots exist that I can find. I am very happy with my purchase.

          Hagstrom SST Troubles

          By ScottyDog

          from Raleigh, NC

          Comments about Hagstrom Super Swede Tremar Electric Guitar:

          First off, let me say that on paper, the Hagstrom Super Swede Tremar (SST) has all the features I desire from an electric guitar, minus locking tuners and a chambered body (the Super Swede is a pretty heavy guitar). I was looking for a guitar that combined Fender Strat and Gibson Les Paul qualities, but I prefer a Bigsby-style vibrato, so the Tremar covers that. That, plus the 25 1/2" scale length and coil splitting for the humbuckers gave me the Fender qualities. The mahogany/carved maple/flamed maple veneer construction, bound body/neck/headstock, and pearl block inlays gave me more of a premium Gibson quality. In addition, my SST came in a very nice Vintage Sunburst finish. The problem is, this Hagstrom was poorly finished and non-functional out-of-the-box. I actually had to access the 3-way pickup selector switch to tweak it to work for both pickups, and then had to set the intonation properly for the unwound strings (they were way off). The Tremar spring was unseated and the volume/tone knobs were set-screwed onto knurled posts so they wobbled as they rotated. The finish aspects included spots/blemishes within the body binding, dark paint splatter on lighter portions of the body, fingerprints/smears embedded in the chrome of the Tremar and roller bridge, and a badly molded and peeling-off Hagstrom crest at the base of the Tremar unit. On the plus side, the neck and headstock were flawless...except for the H-Expander truss rod, which was already at maximum tightness adjustment and still left way too much bow in the neck for good playability. Hagstrom touts its necks as being the fastest in the world, and this one certainly wasn't. The limited time I spend playing the guitar amplified revealed nice humbucking and single-coil tones, and the Tremar worked nicely after I aligned the spring, but I couldn't get past the finish issues and the unadjustable high action. That was key, since I play .011 gauge strings which would only bow the neck more. I returned the SST for a full refund. I contacted Hagstrom customer service, describing my experience, and their reply was basically, "send it back for an exchange". Not very helpful. Clearly, the quality control is lacking at the Hagstrom factory in China. I decided not to give them another chance anytime soon.
