Super Swede F

Super Swede's Organic Expression

Super Swede F

Hagstrom Super Swede F

Recipient of the same heart transplant and personality change as its shorter scale length sibling, the Super Swede-F is a heavily chambered version of the Super Swede, offering up a different, but equally compelling, version of tone on tap.

The sonic transformation achieved is especially profound as the longer, 25.5 inch (648mm), scale length of the Super Swede platform adds new levels of organic “woody” complexity to the Super Swede-F’s expressive range. Hagstrom’s Custom 58 pickups’ crystalline transparency enhances the breadth of the Super Swede-F’s already broad tonal palate.

Sonic Possibilities

The Super Swede-F’s electronics package also makes use of Hagstrom’s passive RC-Circuit, opening the door to new sonic possibilities without sacrificing harmonic complexity. Finally, a coil splitting function enabling the Custom-58 humbucking pickups to be individually switched to single coil mode via the push/pull tone controls completes the electronics package. Overall, the electronics on the Super-Swede-F offer a dazzling array of rich, sonic possibilities.

Offered in three of the Super Swede’s most popular finishes, the Super Swede-F is available in Black Gloss, Vintage Sunburst, and Cosmic Black Burst (CBB also available as a left-handed option).

”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.“

Super Swede F Standards

Resinator Wood

Resinator Wood

Resinator™ wood is a wood composite material that is both more uniform in density and more stable than any standard wood product. These characteristics eliminate dead spots or “wolf tones” sometimes associated with conventional wood fingerboards. Resinator™ wood has an articulate sound similar to high quality ebony, but without any of the problems associated with ebony. It provides a stable and clear tone, and also adds higher overtones and harmonics which uniquely detail each note. Like our H-Expander™ truss rod, Resinator™ wood is a major contributor to the distinctive “Hagstrom tone”.

H-Expander

H-Expander

All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include our patented H-Expander™ truss rod. Providing tension at both ends and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet light-weight alloy truss rod allows for a very low action and thin neck, two factors that were instrumental in earning Hagstrom its reputation as the world’s fastest playing guitar. The H-Expander™ truss rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but it also contributes to Hagstrom’s unique tone.  Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics the H-Expander™ adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.

Guitar Tuning Peg

Hagstrom Machine Heads

Hagstrom models use 18:1 or 15:1 gear ratio machine heads based on our own designs to insure accurate tuning. Viking® and HB series basses feature machine heads with a 17:1 gear ratio.

Sustain Block Tailpiece

Sustain Block Tailpiece

Hagstrom’s unique Sustain Block Tailpiece™ was the result of design work starting in 1976 and made its first appearance on Swede and Super Swede guitars produced in 1978. Since then it has been a signature feature on many of our solid body models. Each string terminates in a single, massive brass block coupled directly to the guitar’s body. The blocks are detached from one another to reduce interference between the strings, maximizing each string’s unique contribution.

Set Neck

Set Neck

Hagstrom uses a variety of different neck joints throughout our range. Our set-neck recipe is the classic and time-tested Mortise and Tenon joint, a design that most efficiently transfers string energy from neck to body, and can often only be found on more expensive custom-built guitars. A team of experienced and dedicated craftsmen hand carves every neck joint, insuring perfect execution of this traditional technique preferred by luthiers for generations.
