Masterpiece with Attitude

Hagstrom’s Tremar HJ500 model, with its gleaming hardware, is a true work of art.

An ebony-supported Tune-O-Matic bridge and Hagstrom’s own silky-smooth Tremar vibrato system give this masterpiece a profound and resonant tone suitable for a variety of musical genres. Our HJ50 humbucking pickups offer vigorous clean and overdriven sounds, with nothing left to be desired.

HJ800 STANDARDS:

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.
Set Neck
Hagstrom uses a variety of different neck joints throughout our range. Our set-neck recipe is the classic and time-tested Mortise and Tenon joint, a design that most efficiently transfers string energy from neck to body, and can often only be found on more expensive custom-built guitars. A team of experienced and dedicated craftsmen hand carves every neck joint, insuring perfect execution of this traditional technique preferred by luthiers for generations.
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".
Tremar Vibrato System
The Hagstrom Tremar Vibrato is a chrome laden, fine-tuned piece of art with top notch vibrato performance. This stunningly light and responsive vintage style, top mount vibrato system, delivers impeccable tuning stability, without eating away at sustain or compromising your overall tone. Together with Hagstrom's own Long Travel Tune-O-Matic roller bridge and the complementing, self-lubricating GraphTech TUSQ XL nut, you won't have to fret being out of tune with your Hagstrom Tremar type guitars.
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
