SWEDE | THE NEW GENERATION
It's hardly surprising for popular classics to remain unaltered, as their ongoing success can make them seem untouchable. However, creative minds continue to challenge and reconsider these concepts, seeking ways to enhance and improve them. Even seemingly perfect products can benefit from innovation and reinvention.
We are thrilled to introduce the revitalized and revamped Swede and Super Swede models, which have been reimagined and redefined for a contemporary audience. This single cut collection is the result of years of dedication, testing, and innovation by our team.

Through specialized techniques and creative problem-solving, Hagstrom has set a new standard for guitar development, blending modern solutions with intuitive design. The result is a series of guitars that honor the timeless quality of their predecessors, while offering new features and capabilities that meet the needs and expectations of today's musicians.

BASIS OF TONE
Adaptation is key in today's ever-changing world, and Hagstrom understands this well. We have implemented innovative solutions to ensure that the guitars are both roadworthy and reliable. To address concerns around angled headstocks, each new Swede and Super Swede is equipped with a perfectly lodged "Volute" at the back of the neck-/headstock joint. This provides additional support and strength to this critical area, ensuring that the instrument can withstand the demands of any world tour.

Moreover, further reinforcements are applied deep within the construction, ensuring the guitar's durability. Tuning stability is also crucial for musicians, and that's why each guitar is equipped with our newly designed higher ratio Hagstrom 19:1 locking tuners. This enables quick string changes and easy tuning adjustments on the fly, without sacrificing stability. These modern solutions provide musicians with peace of mind, allowing them to focus on their music and perform at their best, no matter what the situation is.

CRUCIAL CONNECTIONS
The body and neck joint is a vital part of stringed instruments. When done correctly, it allows for a seamless flow of tone, energy, and resonance. Hagstrom has developed an innovative neck joint design called the "Nape-Tenon," which combines the custom shop proven mortise and tenon design with a recessed neck body joint. It enables easy access to even the highest frets without sacrificing tone, resonance, or comfort. Although this construction process may take more time and effort, we firmly believe that shortcuts are not an option when striving for excellence.

Hence the use of stainless steel frets, which provide a hassle free lifetime of performance and ensure optimal intonation and playability. At Hagstrom, we recognize that critical connections are essential in every aspect of guitar design, from the body and neck joint to the electronics and hardware. Our commitment to using high-quality materials and expert craftsmanship sets us apart and guarantees that every musician who plays our instruments experiences exceptional tone, playability, and reliability.

HONORING OUR FAMILY ROOTS
Hagstrom has a long-standing tradition of excellence and distinction in crafting fine instruments, represented by the centuries-old Hagstrom crest that adorns each of our guitars. This emblem represents the "Hagstrom Clan," a family with a rich history and a deep connection to guitar- and instrument-making. It is a symbol of honor and pride that has been worn with distinction for centuries and continues to be a powerful emblem of the company's dedication to quality and excellence in modern times.

Hagstrom is committed to honoring these family roots in everything we do. We are proud of our heritage and strive to embody the values that have made the family and instruments so respected and admired throughout time. This dedication is evident in every aspect, from the design and construction of the instruments to the materials used and the people we work with. In short, Hagstrom is a company committed to family values and dedicated to craft instruments of the highest quality. The Hagstrom crest serves as a symbol of this devotion to excellence and promise to honoring the family roots in all that we do.
