Solid body-gitaren Swede ble lansert første gang i 1970-71. Modellen har kropp og hals i mahogni og gripebrett i Diamondwood-Ebony med 22 bånd og 24-3/4" mensur. Hodet har klassisk Hagström-design, innlegg og lukket krommet Hagström-mekanikk.
A heavily chambered body with a classic f-hole design helps the Swede-F deliver an entirely different tone from its solid-body brother. The chambering of the Swede-F’s body both reduces weight and introduces an entirely new range of organic tones. Hagstrom’s legendary and brilliantly transparent Custom 58 pickups contribute by sensing all of the nuances in attack and sustain introduced by the chambered body: a true fusion of “woody” attack and mellow sustain created by an expressive coupling of acoustic and electric potential.
Hagstrom’s passive RC-Circuit, incorporated into the volume electronics, is new for the Swede-F, and allows for increased tonal precision by laying out a sonic spectrum from full gain, to slight crunch, to pristine clean without sacrificing any harmonic richness … all without having to touch a dial on your amplifier.
Offered in three of the Swede’s classic colors: Black Gloss, White and Wild Cherry Transparent, the Swede-F will astonish players and introduce a new, never before experienced, aspect to the meaning of “tone on tap”.
