Hagstrom Electric Guitars
Pat Smear's model is only scratching the surface of what Hagstrom has to offer, though. With over half a century of history, many of their current models are reproductions of classic Hagstrom guitars, which means a good selection of hollow and semi-hollow bodies if you're looking for that vintage sound. These include the classic Viking, available in six and twelve-string versions, as well as the dual-cutaway humbucking Deuce models , which are based on the Super Swede.
If you're looking for a guitar with tremolo, the Super Swede is itself a good choice. It comes with Hagstrom's home-brewed "Tremar" tremolo bridge that creates genuine-sounding vintage vibrato effects. The same bridge is on several other Hagstrom models, includingthe HJ-500, which is a reissue of the original Hagstrom Jimmy, a semi-hollow model initially designed by renowned luthier Jimmy D'Aquisto in the 1960s.
With solid, hollow and semi-hollow bodies to choose from, with and without tremolo, Hagstrom electric guitars come in varieties to suit virtually any musical preference. Whether you jazz it up with the HI-550, play it vintage style with the Viking or replicate Pat Smear's sound with his signature axe, you won't be disappointed in the performance of these guitars.
