We have also teamed up with one of Hagstrom’s long time suppliers since days of past with “Schaller” Germany, since these specialized instruments prescribed extraordinary hardware to inspire the eyes and ears of the beholder. This joint effort brought forth a customized Schaller STM bridge together with a customized set of Schaller’s rear-locking M6 tuners, all presented with a special mix of Schaller’s Ruthenium with Gold trim finish. Each hardware piece has been carefully designed as a detailed ornament. Playability, tone and response is unequalled with this fantastic combination of hardware, to bring out the best from each instrument.
As icing on the cake, specially inscribed Schaller knobs with our discernible Hagstrom “H” is featured on each of the two independent volume and push/pull tone knobs, to further justify the singularity of each instrument. The arduous setup of each guitar before its initial delivery from Sweden, is executed with utmost passion where each instrument receives several hours of refinement, for perfect playing performance. The instrument frets and fretboards are also specially scanned and treated using the latest “Plek” technology, where any where any necessary fret adjustments are made within 1/1000 of a millimetre, resulting in perfect playability throughout the fretboard. The newly introduced setup of a specially customized “Hagstrom Plek” fret radius, offers frets with a slight compound radius for comfortable and even playing from the first to last fret. We have also taken steps to ensure that players in the future can rely on their local “Plek” service shops, to guarantee that their instrument receives the exact same setup as intended when the guitar originally left production. This is done by simply indicating the serial number on the rear inscribed plate at the back of the headstock, where the detailed information for that specific instruments can be accessed through Plek’s international database.
Do not hesitate in obtaining one of these unique wonders, as quantities are few and sparse. However, as our Hagstrom intention always goes, each of these instruments offered are listed at a very meagre cost considering the time, materials, and heart to offer an incredible value for building some of the world’s finest instruments.
