Hagstrom electric guitars include the company s patented H-Expander truss rod. Providing tension at either end and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet lightweight 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
Ensuring accurate tuning, Hagstrom s exclusive 18:1 gear ratio machine heads are also included on all electric models.
Resinator Wood is a wood composite material that is homogeneous in nature and is more stable than any standard wood product. It is the perfect fingerboard material in that it eliminates wolf tones or hot spots. It has an articulate sound like high quality Ebony without the problems associated with Ebony
A self-lubricating graphite composite nut ensures increased sustain and vibration through improved transfer of energy to the neck, while the hard tropical mahogany tone woods used on the body produce a warm, mellow sound.
