Packed with playing features and great-sounding electronics.
The Ultra Max shares the same small body concept of the Ultra Swede, yet with a slightly larger proportioned mahogany body topped with a thick custom carved flame maple top. The body joins to a mahogany set neck utilizing a mortise and tenon neck joint with a 25.50” scale length, which naturally features Hagstrom's H-Expander truss-rod and Resinator fingerboard. Its sleek and “ultra-comfortable fast neck” is paralleled with Custom 60 Alnico-5 pickups with their eloquent Aluminum Brushed covers, delivering the cutting voice that this instrument demands.
Each of the Ultra Max’s specially wound Custom 60 humbucking pickups utilizes Nylon coated wire united with an Alnico 5 magnet (unmistakably familiar to the “Custom 58”). However, the Custom 60 ultimately packs a mighty punch and hot sizzle compared to the vintage voiced Custom 58.
Each pickup is controlled with its own independent Volume pot featuring a standard R/C circuit on each potentiometer, to help focus on its cleaner tones with a slight turn of the pot. Its single Master Tone also features a dual coil split, using its push/pull tone configuration to allow for players to switch from “Full Humbucker Tilt” to “Spanky Single Coil Clean” in a heartbeat.
The Ultra Max combines all of the power, long sustain, clarity and attack, as found with the “Ultra Swede”, yet offers players a fresh tonal pallet with additional flexibility and comfortable playability with its compact body. With its longer 25.50” scale length the Ultra Max handles drop tunings with ease, where players looking for a slightly slimmed body with a searing tone will have found their long-term mate.
The Ultra Max is available in beautiful satin finishes. The most surprising aspect of these instruments will be their reasonable price. These are Hagstrom through and through, and built to be driven long and hard. Case sold separately.
