Hagstrom ULMAX-SBK Ultra Max Electric Guitar. Black Satin
A slender, compact body joined to an ultra-slim neck profiled in a easy D shape is combined with the rich and powerful sound of Hagstroms Custom 62 pickups. The tone is truly ultra-licious, both in humbucking mode and in coil-split mode for single-coil sounds. The Ultra Swede is everything that makes a Hagstrom special combined together in a platform for the 21st century.
Hagstroms Custom Ceramic 62 pickups shine in both humbucker and in single-coil mode. A tight and raucous humbucker attack is complemented by a lush and airy single-coil tone when the pickup coils are split.
Vintage Hagstrom necks were known as the fastest in the world and the Ultra Swede easily lives up to this legacy. Its H-Expander truss rod, Resinator fingerboard, and slim D profile provide an ultra-comfortable playing surface that can handle the lowest action settings. Pull the trigger and let those fingers fly!
All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include their 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 worlds fastest playing guitar. The H-Expander truss rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but it also contributes to Hagstroms unique tone. Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics the H-Expander adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.
Resinator wood is a wood composite material that is both more uniform in density and more stable than any standard wood product. These characteristics eliminate dead spots or wolf tones sometimes associated with conventional wood fingerboards. Resinator wood has an articulate sound similar to high quality ebony, but without any of the problems associated with ebony. It provides a stable and Clear tone, and also adds higher overtones and harmonics which uniquely detail each note. Like our H-Expander
