Hagstrom basses are based on two different series, these being the Vintage, and Northen series. Each series has been specially developed to offer a truly unique instrument, to cater to a multitude of different players and playing styles. At the top of the list heads the stunning European made Northen Series bass, takes a Hagstrom classic into focus, bringing forth a one of the worlds most coveted and captivating basses. The Vintage series basses (H and Viking® basses) have been specially created by examining Hagstroms classic repertoire of bass models from the past, where the tone and playability has been taken into serious consideration to bring these renowned classics back to the world.
Featuring a short, 30.75 inch (781mm) scale length, the all mahogany, set-neck Swede Bass offers enormous sustain and easy play-ability. One of the most important traits inherited from the Swede guitar is Hagstrom’s classic tailpiece design with its massive blocks directly coupled to the body for optimal transmission of string energy, a key contributor to the Swede Bass’s thunderous, piano-like tones.
Pickups on the Swede Bass are derived from its not-too-distant cousin, the Viking Bass, and will delight players looking for sonic versatility; from classic to modern, these pickups deliver it all. Include a 3-way tone switch, another genetic contribution from the Swede Bass’ brother, and you have an easy-to-use, and easy-to-play source for your next collection of great bass sounds.
The Swede Bass’ classic, single-cut design will be the perfect partner for players looking for superior tone, comfort, and sonic versatility, and is available in four classic Hagstrom colors: White, Wild Cherry Transparent, Black Gloss, and Vintage Sunburst.
