Hagstrom Swede Black - 1978
This black beauty sounds as good as it looks and plays just as well to boot! In my experience good PAFs have a really nice presence, warmth and a little bit of separation and this guitar has good Hagstrom-style PAFs! A separate tone selector makes for quick work but you also have the traditional tone setup as well. The hardware is clean and I really like the bridge and tailpiece on these. Not a heavy one either, weighing in at 8.86 lbs. Interesting to note, both original knobs and pickup-up surrounds are in excellent condition as these are usually broken or changed on most of today’s examples. A very nice Swede indeed! Comes with a era-correct hard shell case.
