    Hagstrom Fantomen Guitar in White Gloss with Branded Hardcase

    The Hagstrom Fantomen is the perfect marriage of art and engineering, crafted by the talented design team at Hagstrom in collaboration with the Swedish band Ghost. Fantomen - meaning "The Phantom" in Swedish - is the perfect blend of Hagstrom's renowned playability and technical proficiency, heightened to create an edgier sound that plays like a dream.

    Description

    An elegant, asymmetrical solid-mahogany body provides the base for the Fantomen, connected to a mahogany neck for trustworthy stability via Hagstrom's classic mortise-and-tenon joint system. Enhancing the stability even further, the guitar is equipped with an H-Expander truss rod and a Resinator fingerboard for maximum tonal clarity. A firm, resonant playing platform thus ensues.

    Sharp attack and more sustain
    With a relatively thin 1.25" (3.5cm) body, the Fantomen is beautifully balanced and surprisingly lightweight. A 25.5” (648mm) scale provides a slightly sharper attack and more sustain than classic 24.75” scale guitars. A neck joint design that provides total, unrestricted access to all 22 frets will meet the needs of even the most virtuosic player.

    Immense expressive range
    Our goal was to equip the Fantomen with electronics that would allow for a varied tonal palette ranging from classic, vintage colors to screaming metallic brilliance. We worked with Swedish pickup guru Johan Lundgren, designer of pickups used by artists such as Meshuggah’s Martin Hagström (no relation!). Lundgren recommended two different humbucker designs: No. 2 in the neck position and No. 5 in the bridge position. The result covers an immense expressive range; from smooth, warm tones to the kind of attack and intense dynamic output that would satisfy the demands of even the most extreme musical styles. Each pickup can be split to single-coil mode by means of push/pull switches incorporated into the tone controls for even more sonic flexibility. This guitar speaks with many distinct voices.

    On stage with Ghost

    You can find the Fantomen on stage with Ghost. You don’t have to be a Nameless Ghoul to play it, and you can be sure the guitar available at your Hagstrom dealer is identical in every way to those on stage with Ghost!

    FANTOMEN STANDARDS:

    H-Expander
    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 Hagstrom.

    Lundgren Pickups
    We worked with Swedish pickup guru Johan Lundgren, designer of pickups used by artists such as Meshuggah’s Martin Hagström (no relation!). His pickups cover an immense expressive range; from smooth, warm tones to the kind of attack and intense dynamic output that would satisfy the demands of even the most extreme musical styles.

    Set Neck
    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
    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 tone".

    Hagstrom Machine Heads
    Hagstrom models use 18:1 or 15:1 gear ratio machine heads based on our own designs to insure accurate tuning. Viking and HB series basses feature machine heads with a 17:1 gear ratio.
