A Deep Bond

Pat Smear needs no introduction. He has been in the vanguard of music history his entire career, from the early years as a founding member of the seminal punk band "The Germs", to his stint with the legendary Nirvana, and on to his current role laying down colossal riffs for the Foo Fighters.

Hagstrom has been his instrument of choice since the 1970’s, creating a deep and authentic bond that has lasted decades.

We at Hagstrom Guitars were both pleased and honored to be given the task of transforming his privately customized and road-proven vintage Hagstrom into the Pat Smear Signature guitar you see here. An additional source of pride for us is that the Pat Smear Signature guitar you find at your Hagstrom dealer is identical to the one Pat plays night after night on some of the largest stages in the world.

Pick one up at your Hagstrom dealer and join us in this unique, historic relationship.

This slick black beauty is a voluptuous blend of vintage Hagstrom H-IIN-OT and modern-day Super Swede. Its sleek mahogany body and deeply contoured maple top provide a deep, projecting platform for Hagstrom’s Custom 58 AlNiCo humbucking pickups, enabling the guitar to cut through the mix and sit right in the middle of the Foo’s triple-guitar onslaught. Elegant, clean tones meet highly saturated distortion. Just what Pat ordered.

PAT SMEAR SIGNATURE FEATURES:

H-Expander
All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include our patented H-Expander truss rod. Providing tension at both ends and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet light-weight alloy truss rod allows for a very low action and thin neck, two factors that were instrumental in earning Hagstrom its reputation as the world’s fastest playing guitar. The H-Expander truss rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but it also contributes to Hagstrom’s unique tone. Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics the H-Expander adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.
Resinator Wood
Resinator wood is a wood composite material that is both more uniform in density and more stable than any standard wood product. These characteristics eliminate dead spots or "wolf tones" sometimes associated with conventional wood fingerboards. Resinator wood has an articulate sound similar to high quality ebony, but without any of the problems associated with ebony. It provides a stable and clear tone, and also adds higher overtones and harmonics which uniquely detail each note. Like our H-Expander truss rod, Resinator wood is a major contributor to the distinctive "Hagstrom tone".
Hagstrom Machine Heads
Hagstrom models use 18:1 or 15:1 gear ratio machine heads based on our own designs to insure accurate tuning. Viking and HB series basses feature machine heads with a 17:1 gear ratio
