Hagstrom Super Swede Bass Reissue!
http://www.hagstromguitars.eu/index....=214&Itemid=14 :hyper: :bassist:
I have been looking high and low for a (new) Jazz bass that is really good, and with ergonomics I like. Not much luck so far, but this might be the one. At least if they make the neck a bit thinner (front to back) than on the Scan Bass. (edit: The vintage ones have sort of thick necks. The newer ones are much thinner.)
And it is Swedish (at least the brand)! :D
Ireally love the elegant look of this bass. And, every Hagstrom (guitar or bass) I've ever played had a super-shallow neck, about like playing just a fretboard.
I'll definitely be looking to test-drive one of these.
Nice. I like the black one a lot.
Edit: But not at the prices listed in post #5 and #6.
These are from the Northen Series and will not be inexpensive - perhaps expect $1500 street price...
SEK 20 000 = $ 2700 or so, incl tax in Sweden...
Something to keep in mind re price - these aren't being built in Asia. It amounts to a Hagstrom Custom Shop instrument.
I bet it's smokin' in every way.
P.S. I am a big Hagstrom fan and besides an HB-1 I'm lucky enough to have found a Coronado IV with Bi-Sonics in excellent shape some years ago, and I've only ever seen 2 or 3 come around in very worn condition.
I have never seen a Super Swede come up for sale.
Here's the chance to own one.
I have a Hagstrom Viking and can't recommend it enough for the $ I paid. I wouldn't hesitate to try one of their basses.
Pardon the newbie question (I'm unfamiliar with Hagstrom) but what exactly is a "Resinator" fretboard? Sans techno-babble, I mean.
But that is a very, very sexy bass.
