Comments Despite their quality, Hagstrom guitars were never common in North America, and the Super Swede is one of the hardest to find. The Super Swede (originally called the Swede DeLuxe) was built from 1976 until Hagstrom ceased production in 1983, unable to compete with lower-priced instruments built in Asia. The Super Swede features maple construction with ebony fingerboard, and the tone is crisp and clear with lots of sustain and definition. This example is in excellent condition and a very attractive transluscent blue.
