Northen Super Swede - Tone Superiority
Whether you choose the legendary, classic rock approved Black Gloss, the devine Tobacco Sunburst, or the dazzling, highly figured flame maple top finishes in Vintage Sunburst or Cosmic Blackburst: The Northen Super Swede’s looks are remarkably complimented by its tonal prowess. Powered by a No. 2 set of Johan Lundgren designed double coil greatness, the Northen Super Swede dishes out sounds as diverse as classic, wellarticulated humbucking heaven, or thanks to the individual coil tap for each pickup and its longer scale of 25,5”, a distinct tone that can only be called “twangers delight”, reminiscent of the most iconic single coil equipped axes.
Bestowing an African Mahogany body, or select Maple Top paired with an African Mahogany body, ensures the unmistakable, original “Classic” Hagstrom Tone. Each piece of timber is carefully hand selected to bring forth the classical design and comfortable handling providing the most pleasant weight possible, even hour after hour of performing on stage.
