Gear Profile: Hagstrom Guitars

Guitar Shop TV met with Craig Smith of Hagstrom Guitars at NAMM 2012 to preview some of their gorgeous new models, including their very cool Tremar Deuce-F model, the Viking Baritone guitar, and our personal favorite, the new Viking electric 12-string! See the video above for the complete interview.

 

 

Hagstrom is an iconic Swedish guitar company with a great history of producing high-quality, cool looking, great sounding instruments at attractive prices. The Tremar Deuce-F model was a clear standout at NAMM, and brings Hagstrom’s widely acclaimed Tremar system to the family of Deuce models. The Tremar Deuce-F features a chambered (Bass side) mahogany body, capped with a 15mm maple top complete with F – sound hole. A set 25.50 inch scale mahogany neck joins the mahogany body at the 19th fret, allowing for a smoother and more comfortable access to the highest frets. Each instrument is also naturally equipped with Hagstrom’s acclaimed H-Expander truss rod, providing ultimate stability to the neck for decades to come, as well as the Resinator finger board which in combination delivers a clear and distinctive tone. The Tremar Deuce-F is also stocked with Hagstrom’s Custom-58 pickups, each being independently splitable (via the push/pull tone knobs) to deliver luscious full humbucking tones, as well as glassier single coil tones at the push of a button.

 

The Deuce’s classic look and vibe will appeal to many musicians, but especially those searching for an instrument to cover a multitude of different tonal variations and playing styles…Check it out, it’s a very exciting instrument! For more information, visit HERE
