    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.
