The Pat Smear effect
Truly influential. Having played with the likes of Nirvana and the Germs in the past, and now a core member of the legendary Foo Fighters, Pat Smear is a guitarist with a huge legacy. He's inspired swathes of musicians around the world, and his performances are truly a sight to behold. This signature model is based off Smear's personal Hagstrom which he used for years, and he uses it himself onstage – a testament to its quality. Made to his exacting standards, it is a shining example of Hagstrom's knack for innovation and quality craftsmanship.
Always living up to expectations. A pair of Hagstrom Custom 58 humbuckers will do your tone proud, offering excellent power, articulation, and clarity. Being humbuckers, they'll make your sound thick, juicy, and crunchy – but they are more than dynamic enough to make clean settings shine. Your riffs will be more explosive and dynamic than ever before - you'll have the means to create exceptional music.
The bridge humbucker is bold and punchy, lifting each note you play up and firing it through the mix with force. It's perfect for crunchy rhythm playing and making electrifying licks. Switch to the neck humbucker and you'll unlock a smooth, fat sound with heaps of sustain and warmth. It's perfect for smooth soloing and wailing string bends. With these powerhouses at your fingertips, nothing will stand in your way.
Play in style and comfort
Playability. It's crucial to helping you perform with tightness and accuracy. Luckily, the Hagstrom Pat smear Signature has it in ample supply, with a smooth mahogany set neck and special Resinator fretboard. The neck is warm-sounding and smooth to the touch – you can go wild with your riffing. And the fretboard is even more impressive. Made from composite wood, it has a bright, punchy tone similar to ebony, but with far greater stability and durability. Your fingers will feel totally at home. These features will help you play with complete freedom.
It won't let you down. With a host of sturdy hardware, you can count on this guitar to see you through any performance – no matter how small or large. A Long Travel Tune-O-Matic roller bridge complete with a Hagstrom Stop tailpiece makes for a great playing experience. They'll keep your strings stable and in tune, and provide a comfortable resting place for your hand. Hagstrom tuning machines also excel supporting your strings, and make tuning quick and easy. Topping it all off is a sturdy black pickguard, which keeps the pristine finish fresh and unblemished. If the Pat Smear Signature guitar is good enough for Pat Smear, you can be sure it's good enough for everyone.
