The Hagstrom H-III Retroscape Guitar in Aged Sky Blue is a stunning instrument that pays homage to the golden era of rock 'n' roll. With its retro-inspired design and impeccable craftsmanship, it exudes vintage charm while offering modern playability.

The H-III Retroscape features a sleek and comfortable double-cutaway body, crafted to perfection and finished in an alluring Aged Sky Blue. The carefully aged finish gives the guitar a distinct vintage character, as if it has been through countless gigs and recording sessions.

Equipped with three Custom 60 Alnico 5 pickups, the H-III Retroscape delivers a wide range of tones with remarkable clarity and power. From warm and mellow blues to biting rock and high-gain mayhem, this guitar can handle it all. The versatile pickup configuration, along with a 5-way switch and coil-splitting capabilities, provides endless sonic possibilities for any musical style.

The ultra-slim "D" profile neck ensures smooth playability and effortless access to the upper frets, while the Resinator fretboard offers excellent sustain and tonal balance. The Hagstrom H-III Retroscape also features the renowned Hagstrom Tremar vibrato system, allowing for expressive pitch manipulation.

Whether you're a vintage enthusiast, a professional musician, or a dedicated collector, the Hagstrom H-III Retroscape Guitar in Aged Sky Blue is a true gem that combines timeless aesthetics with modern versatility. It's an instrument that invites you to embark on a musical journey filled with nostalgic tones and limitless creativity.

Hagstrom has taken great care in recreating the original pickups, and the new ceramic "C-Spin" pickups do an excellent job of matching the originals' sonic glory. Tone-shaping functionality is enhanced by incorporating Hagstrom's new RC-Circuit into the volume control, which allows for volume reduction without the loss of that high frequency "shimmer".




Slightly brighter and more vivid tone, Ample amounts of attack (snap), Strong resonance and sustain, Great serviceability.

Vintage Tremar
In combination with the trusted long travel Tune-O-Matic roller bridge and the Graphtech Black TUSQ XL nut, the re-engineered Vintage Tremar vibrato unit keeps it original appearance while tremendously improving its functionality. Smooth vibrato action and great tuning stability included.

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.

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".
