First introduced in the late 1970’s, the Super Swede has always been considered one of Hagstrom’s flagship models. Each Super Swede is crafted using a mahogany body, maple top, and set mahogany neck.
With a 25.5” scale length and a pair of coil-split-capable Custom 58 AlNiCo pickups, the Super Swede provides a brighter sounding, longer sustaining, and more flexible single-cutaway guitar for players looking for something more than any regular single-cut can offer.
Naturally, the Super Swede is equipped with Hagstrom’s renowned H-Expander™ truss rod and Resinator™ fretboard for a playing surface that provides the ultimate in stability, comfort and tone.
"I have been playing music since 20 years. I play various types of music such as jazz, hard rock and reggae. This guitar can play all kinds of my music styles. I don't like to compare my guitars but this one has a different class.“ - Ultimate-Guitar.com Super Swede Review
