In honour of the Hagstrom classic
Swede, the Swede Bass makes a return to the Hagstrom line after
nearly 40 years.
Featuring a short, 30.75 inch (781mm) scale length, the all mahogany
set-neck Swede Bass offers enormous sustain and easy play-ability.
One of the most important traits inherited from the Swede guitar is
Hagstrom’s classic tailpiece design with its massive blocks directly
coupled to the body for optimal transmission of string energy, a key
contributor to the Swede Bass’s thunderous, piano-like tones.
Pickups on the Swede Bass are derived from its not-too-distant
cousin, the Viking Bass, and will delight players looking for sonic
versatility; from classic to modern, these pickups deliver it all.
Include a 3-way tone switch, another genetic contribution from the
Swede Bass’ brother, and you have an easy-to-use and easy-to-play
source for your next collection of great bass sounds.
On top of it all you can coil split the humbuckers to single coil
mode, individually for neck and bridge pickups, by a pull on the
respective Tone potentiometer knob.
The Swede Bass’ classic, single-cut design will be the perfect
partner for players looking for superior tone, comfort, and sonic
versatility, and is available in four classic Hagstrom colours:
White, Wild Cherry Transparent, Black Gloss, and Vintage Sunburst.
SWEDE BASS STANDARDS:
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
Sustain Block Tailpiece
Hagstrom’s unique Sustain Block Tailpiece was the result of design
work starting in 1976 and made its first appearance on Swede and
Super Swede guitars produced in 1978. Since then it has been a
signature feature on many of our solid body models. Each string
terminates in a single, massive brass block coupled directly to the
guitar’s body. The blocks are detached from one another to reduce
interference between the strings, maximizing each string’s unique
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
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
