Hagstrom’s Mora II series guitars use same tonewood species throughout the instrument. A solid Mahogany top is joined to mahogany back and sides for a beautifully warm looking instrument. An all-Mahogany guitar typically will sound more focused because the fundamental frequencies of each note are emphasized. Such a sound signature is often sought by finger-style soloists or guitarists whose specialty is single note picking.
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.
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”.
All Hagstrom acoustic-electric models are equipped with Fishman’s professional quality ISYS 301 Plus preamp and Sonicore transducer system. Advanced features such as a built-in autochromatic tuner and Phase adjustment control provide the perfect support for Hagstrom’s unique acoustic voice.
