Many models have become top sellers, some became legends played by legends, Frank Zappa, Elvis Presley, Larry Corryell, David Bowie or Abba played Hagstrom. The name Hagstrom stood for top quality and unique tone. Even one of the most renowned archtop guitar makers of that time, James "Jimmy" L. D'Aquisto, developed a full line of archtop models for Hagstrom which until this day have a legendary reputation as " Jimmy" Hagstroms. And this classic Swede is now available as a woofer!! The models were then reissued as far as possible as original as possible. For the new production even original machines and molds are used and partly new mashines built to coincide with the original specifications. Now we have the old bridges, tailpieces and even the Hagstrom Crest faithfully reproduced. Even the tuners of that time were faithfully recreated with somewhat smaller, more comfortable wings and the legendary H-Expander truss rod can be found in the neck of each new Hagstrom instrument.. Another new feature is the "Resinator-Wood" fingerboard material unlike ebony or rosewood improves vibration and lengthens the sustain.
