Only a few manufacturers are able to successfully manage the balancing act of redefining beloved classics in such a way that a perfect blend of defining characteristics, design, and product innovation is achieved.
The Swedish legacy brand HAGSTROM proudly presented the latest generation of Swede and Super Swede models at Namm 2023. According to the manufacturer, only truly creative minds dare to reinterpret classics without completely losing the essence. Innovative technology and ongoing testing result in a fundamentally redefined single-cut guitar series for modern playing culture, according to the Swedes.The body made of mahogany, Canadian maple, and a particularly flamed maple top provides the foundation to merge with the trendy "Lundgren Design" pickups for a versatile and powerful range of sounds that is only surpassed by the characteristic and highly coveted appearance of the instruments. Both reinterpretations benefit from innovative solutions and are equipped with clever details such as a refined "Volute". Its additional internal reinforcements at this sensitive point ensure an unprecedentedly secure connection of the angled neck/headstock joint.The newly designed HAGSTROM 19:1 locking tuners guarantee tuning stability and quick string changes. The "Nape-Tenon" neck joint, fundamentally redesigned by HAGSTROM, allows effortless access to the upper fret regions without sacrificing sound or comfort. 22 medium jumbo stainless steel frets deliver optimal intonation and playability, paired with high durability. The icing on the cake and a tribute to family values is the implementation of the centuries-old coat of arms in the form of the fingerboard inlays.The New Generation Swede and Super Swede guitars will soon be available at selected HAGSTROM dealers.
