Hagstrom Condor Electric Guitar Guitar Black w/ Hardcase
Hagstrom introduced the Impala and
Condor models in 1963, and the instruments quickly found their way
into the hands of many professional and aspiring musicians
throughout the world.
This was a period of great experimentation and innovation in
electric guitar design. With their futuristic body shapes and unique
assortment of tone-shaping options, the Impala and Condor stood out
and became integral in creating great music and inspiring amazing
artists. They have become highly sought after as collectibles, and
vintage instruments still find their way onto stages worldwide.
Now, don't look any further. Back and here to stay: the all new
Condor and Impala models. With their re-introduction in 2015,
Hagstrom has taken great care to keep the set-neck "soul" of the
Impala and Condor intact while incorporating important design
improvements that will immediately appeal to modern players.
The neck profile has been slightly rounded, weight balance has been
optimized, and important improvements to the "Vintage Tremar"
vibrato unit have been made. Finally, an improved switching array
maintains the look and function of the originals while incorporating
modern, dependable, and ergonomic slide switches.
Since the tone of these instruments carved such a powerful space in
the hearts of players, countless hours have been spent to reproduce
the essence of the original pickups used in the Impala and Condor.
The hard work has paid off with Hagstrom's AlNiCo 5 "Retro-S"
pickups, which expertly recreate the essence of the 60s sound and,
at the same time, keep the door open for more modern sonic
Hagstrom uses a variety of different neck joints throughout our range. Our
set-neck recipe is the classic and time-tested Mortise and Tenon joint, a design
that most efficiently transfers string energy from neck to body, and can often
only be found on more expensive custom-built guitars. A team of experienced and
dedicated craftsmen hand carves every neck joint, insuring perfect execution of
this traditional technique preferred by luthiers for generations.
In combination with the trusted long travel Tune-O-Matic roller bridge and the
Graphtech Black TUSQ XL nut, the re-engineered Vintage Tremar vibrato unit keeps
it original appearance while tremendously improving its functionality. Smooth
vibrato action and great tuning stability included.
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.
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".
