Hagstrom Hl-550 Jazz Hollow Body Guitar Dk Red W/ Case


Want to play some great jazz? THIS IS THE AXE FOR YOU! Includes original Hard Shell Case!

Sounds phenomenal, and plays like a dream. Really!

The Hagstrom Jazz Model HL-550 Hollowbody Electric
Guitar features a mahogany body and set mahogany neck. The Hagstrom
patented H-Expander truss rod provides tension at either end and runs
the entire length of the neck. The rigid yet lightweight alloy truss
rod allows for very low action and a thin neck.

Another Hagstrom
exclusive is the resinator fretboard, an extraordinary, homogeneous
wood composite that maintains a strong fundamental harmonic and
eliminates wolf tones. It offers the articulate sound of high quality
ebony but with more consistency and durability. Silky smooth, reliable
and fast.

The Hagstrom Jazz HL-550 Guitar has a single floating
custom HF-50 humbucker, combined with the resonant hollowbody to
provide lots of warm, rich tone.

The self-lubricating graphite
composite nut is much harder than bone or plastic resulting in more
string vibration through the neck. Tuning is also improved and string
binding is eliminated by self-lubrication.

A long travel wooden jazz style bridge and trapeze tailpiece further increase tone, sustain, and intonation quality.

18:1 Gear Ratio machine heads ensure fully accurate tuning.

high-grade polyester finish that is hard, smooth, and more dense than
polyurethane. The finish on the Hagstrom HL-550 electric guitar looks
great and provides excellent protection and sonic performance. This is one of the best looking archtops I've seen.

The only problem with these fine guitars is a somewhat cheesy, flimsy pickguard- this one has a custom luthier-built replacement pickguard, thicker and more stable than the original, with perfectly radiused edges exposing the black-white-black layering, and tasteful wooden volume and tone knobs. Great sounding pickup!  Marked "B" on rear of headstock, but I can find no visible blemishes or problems anywhere, other than one small screw hole on side next to the body binding, under the knobs, where the pickguard mounting brace was relocated. Overall a really beautiful axe, suitable for professional performance, recording, and pleasure!
