Hagstrom Jazz Model HL-550 Hollowbody Right-Handed Guitar With Bigsby Tremolo
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 Tune-O-Matic-style bridge and trapeze tailpiece further increase tone, sustain, and intonation quality. 18:1 Gear Ratio machine heads ensure fully accurate tuning. A 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.
