Topic starter  

I recently sold my Squier Strat to a buddy who wanted to learn guitar and in return bought myself a beautiful Hagstrom Super Swede. I don't see much around here about Hags but I'll tell you I'm in love with the guitar. IMO it plays infinitely better than LPs that cost 4x as much. I love the neck on it (patented Hagstrom design) and the finish is absolutely gorgeous. I haven't had time to properly play with the coil tap yet so there's lots of fun to be had there.

It's Amber finish with gold hardware and Hag tuners. I must say I'm in love with this animal. I'll take some pics when I put it down.

Here's a few pics, I'll get a few more up when people let me know what they want to see. Im not used to these guitar photo shoots

Note: on the last picture that yellow spot is just the flash, not a flaw in the finish.

Is it a new Hagstrom or an old one? I have a Hagstrom HIIN from 72 or 76 I can't really remember. But its been a project of mine for a long time, becaue I haven't had a ton of time or money to finish, it was a wreck when I got hold of it.

I've played some of the new Swedes, there great. Never played an old one before though.

Looking foward to some pictures.

Get a tripod then - too much rocking and you'll have a blurred picture.........

Great looking guitars. I've had my eye on one for a while. I was thinking of the double cutaway though.

It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!
