Hagstrom HJ500



All Hagstrom guitars feature their revolutionary patented H-Expander truss rod. Providing tension at either end and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet lightweight alloy truss rod allows for very low action and a thin neck, earning them the reputation as the “Fastest Neck on the Planet.”

Yet another Hagstrom exclusive, the Resinator™ Fretboard is an extraordinary, homogeneous wood composite that maintains a strong fundamental harmonic and eliminates wolf tones. Resinator™ Fretboards offer the articulate sound of high quality ebony but with more consistency and durability. Silky smooth, reliable, and fast, the Hagstrom neck is a guitarist’s dream come true.

The rock solid Hagstrom Block Stop Tailpiece provides maximum tone and endless sustain by transferring uninhibited string energy directly to the guitar body. On models featuring tremolo, sustain is further enhanced by our Full Contact System (FCS-1) tremolo bridge, which offers more contiguous contact than any other tremolo bridge, period.

Hagstrom’s exclusive 18:1 Gear Ratio machine heads are standard on all electric models and ensure fully accurate tuning.

Hagstrom guitars feature a high grade polyester finish that is harder, smoother, and more dense than polyurethane, found on most other guitars. Our polyester finish looks amazing and provides better protection and sonic performance.
