Manufacturer's Description

The essential Hagstrom pro features packaged together for today’s modern player in the most affordable platform we’ve ever offered. Of course, the ESN is equipped with Hagstrom’s exclusive H-Expander Trussrod™ for the ultimate in neck stability. Our Sustain-Block Tailpiece™ uses six massive brass blocks to individually couple each string directly to the body, generating a clear, bell-like sustain way beyond the ESN’s price-class. Added to the mix is a matched pair of Hagstrom-designed Custom 62 open-coil humbucking pickups for a tight, controlled modern tone suitable for a wide spectrum of musical styles. A solid carved mahogany body bolted to a maple neck featuring Hagstrom’s UltraSlim-D profile, one of the fastest you’ll ever play, completes this value-priced yet feature-rich package.

Hagstrom Machine Heads

Hagstrom models use 18:1 or 15:1 gear ratio machine heads based on our own designs to insure accurate tuning. Viking® and HB series basses feature machine heads with a 17:1 gear ratio.

H-Expander

All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include our patented H-Expander™ truss rod. Providing tension at both ends and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet light-weight alloy truss rod allows for a very low action and thin neck, two factors that were instrumental in earning Hagstrom its reputation as the world’s fastest playing guitar. The H-Expander™ truss rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but it also contributes to Hagstrom’s unique tone.  Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics the H-Expander™ adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.

Sustain Block Tailpiece

Hagstrom’s unique Sustain Block Tailpiece™ was the result of design work starting in 1976 and made its first appearance on Swede and Super Swede guitars produced in 1978. Since then it has been a signature feature on many of our solid body models. Each string terminates in a single, massive brass block coupled directly to the guitar’s body. The blocks are detached from one another to reduce interference between the strings, maximizing each string’s unique contribution.
