Super Swede 6-String Electric Guitar, Cosmic Black Burst
Item ID: SSWLTDS-CBB
First introduced in the late 1970’s, the Super Swede has always been considered one of Hagstrom’s flagship models. Each Super Swede is crafted using a mahogany body, maple top, and set mahogany neck.
With a 25.5” scale length and a pair of coil-split-capable Custom 58 AlNiCo pickups, the Super Swede provides a brighter sounding, longer sustaining, and more flexible single-cutaway guitar for players looking for something more than any regular single-cut can offer.
Naturally, the Super Swede is equipped with Hagstrom’s renowned H-Expander™ truss rod and Resinator™ fretboard for a playing surface that provides the ultimate in stability, comfort and tone.
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.
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.
