Hagstrom Left Handed Guitars & Basses

Wondering which Hagstrom left handed guitar and bass models are currently available? You’re in the right place!

In this article we’ll look at their left handed range of guitars and basses.

Hagstrom Alvar Left Handed

Hagstrom Alvar Left Handed Guitar

The Hagstrom Alvar is the the smaller brother of the Hagstrom Viking below, which perfectly lives up to its Norse origins as the “Elf Warrior”. A true best friend and fellow fighting companion.

This semi-hollow bodied instrument in its “petite” body size, will be a perfect match for players searching for a semi-hollow in a smaller compact form.

While it shares so many elements of its larger bodied sibling, the Alvar is a reigning force despite its diminutive proportions and elements.

Here’s a great video demo which shows off some of the sounds that the Alvar is capable of!

The Viking is THE undisputed all-time classic of the Hagstrom range, and is one of the finest and most affordable semi-hollow guitars on the market today.

With its meticulously crafted laminated maple body, solid center-sustain-block, and hard-maple set neck, it churns out sounds as diverse as they come. 

Hagstrom’s prominent, yet not-too-hot HJ50 humbucking pickups deliver a broad sonic palette ranging from Blues to Rock to Jazz-Fusion to 60’s Beat and beyond. You can even take it on a shred spin.

Hagstrom Super Viking Left Handed

Hagstrom Super Viking Left Handed Guitar

Versatile tone, incredible playability, and sleek looks have powered the Hagstrom Viking to its commanding position in the in the semi-hollow body guitar world.  The Super Viking continues in the Viking tradition by incorporating key features from Hagstrom’s legendary Super Swede model into a Viking platform.

An important trait inherited from its Super Swede cousin is the Super Viking’s longer, 25.5 inch (648mm) scale length.  Drop tunings are a breeze with this longer scale, maintaining brilliance of attack and powerful resonance throughout the instrument as lower tonal realms are explored.

Sonic versatility is further enhanced by Hagstrom’s new, open framed H-50’C humbucker pickups designed specifically for the Super Viking.  Add to this mix independent switching between humbucker and single coil mode via push/pull tone pots, and the Super Viking vastly expands your tonal horizons, creating a new range of sonic worlds to ravage.

Hagstrom Swede F Left Handed

A heavily chambered body with a classic f-hole design helps the Swede-F deliver an entirely different tone from its solid-body brother. The chambering of the Swede-F’s body both reduces weight and introduces an entirely new range of organic tones.

Hagstrom’s legendary and brilliantly transparent Custom 58 pickups contribute by sensing all of the nuances in attack and sustain introduced by the chambered body: a true fusion of “woody” attack and mellow sustain created by an expressive coupling of acoustic and electric potential.

  • Neck : Mahogany
  • Scale Length : 24.75″
  • Fingerboard : Resinator
  • Bridge : Long Travel Tune-O-Matic w/ Hagstrom Stop Tail Piece

Hagstrom Super Swede F Left Handed

Recipient of the same heart transplant and personality change as its shorter scale length sibling, the Super Swede-F is a heavily chambered version of the Super Swede, offering up a different, but equally compelling, version of tone on tap.

The sonic transformation achieved is especially profound as the longer, 25.5 inch (648mm), scale length of the Super Swede platform adds new levels of organic “woody” complexity to the Super Swede-F’s expressive range.

Hagstrom’s Custom 58 pickups’ crystalline transparency enhances the breadth of the Super Swede-F’s already broad tonal palate.

Hagstrom Swede Bass Left Handed

Hagstrom Swede Bass Left Handed

In honor of the Hagstrom classic Swede, the Swede Bass makes a return to the Hagstrom line after nearly 40 years.

Featuring a short, 30.75 inch (781mm) scale length, the all mahogany, set-neck Swede Bass offers enormous sustain and easy play-ability.

One of the most important traits inherited from the Swede guitar is Hagstrom’s classic tailpiece design with its massive blocks directly coupled to the body for optimal transmission of string energy, a key contributor to the Swede Bass’s thunderous, piano-like tones.
